Could it be the end of the line for AMD's Radeon VII flagship consumer graphics card? That might indeed be the case according to a new report making the rounds late this week.  According to the report, the Radeon VII has been has reached end-of-life status and supplies of the card are drying up fast. French site CowcotLand states the cards have been disappearing off store shelves and when cards are found in stock, they are slapped with a significant price premium compared to MSRP. We decided to do some checking ourselves, and visiting Newegg showed that four out of the five Radeon VII cards that the retailer sells are out of stock. Only the ASRock Phantom... Read more...
Unless you've been living under a rock, then you know that Q3 is shaping up to be a big launch period for AMD. The company has confirmed that it will launch third-generation Ryzen 3000 desktop processors, second-generation EPYC server processors and Radeon RX Navi consumer GPUs.  Of those products, we know the least about Radeon RX Navi, which means that speculation has been running rampant in the months leading up to the official reveal. With the launch window closely approaching (as early as next week according to recent reports), we've had to decipher a lot of information regarding Navi. One of the more recent rumors zeroed in on a $330 price tag for the alleged... Read more...
Over the past week or so, we've seen leaked information and leaks alleging the arrival of 50th anniversary versions of the Ryzen 7 2700X processor and Radeon VII graphics card. Today, AMD officially confirmed those early reports. The Ryzen 7 2700X Gold Edition is distinguished from the regular run-of-the-mill processor thanks to a laser-etched signature of AMD CEO Lisa Su on the integrated heat spreader and special gold AMD50 packaging. You won't have to pay extra to get this special edition -- it has the same $329 MSRP as the regular Ryzen 7 2700X processor -- and will be available in limited quantities in North America, Latin America, Europe, Greater China and Asia Pacific...

AMD is getting a slight jump on its 50th anniversary by prepping a couple of special edition parts for release just ahead of the big day. If the latest leak proves real, then on Monday, April 29, AMD will unveil 50th anniversary editions of its Zen-based Ryzen 7 2700X processor and Vega-based Radeon VII graphics card, both in special packaging to commemorate the occasion. We have already seen references to the anniversary edition Ryzen 7 2700X, which showed up in a retail listing last week. At the time, however, there was no mention of there also being a special version of the Radeon VII. We still do not have a lot of details to go on, though it is a reasonable bet that these will be available... Read more...
For people that like to carry a thin-and-light notebook around with them, but might on occasion need some extra graphics horsepower either for games or professional work, external GPU enclosures are a blessing. Rather than be limited by a meager Intel IGP, for example, you can toss in a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti into an enclosure to instantly boost your GPU capabilities. Razer announced today that is launching the new Core X Chroma external GPU enclosure. At first glance, the most noticeable change over the standard Core X is the addition of Razer Chroma RGB lighting in the lower front of the enclosure and internally. In addition, the 650-watt power supply has given way to an uprated 700-watt... Read more...

At long last, the Radeon VII is here, it has been reviewed and benchmarked (be sure to check out our own hands-on analysis), and it is now up to consumers to pull the trigger or take a pass. One of the selling points is that the Radeon VII has 16GB of HBM2 memory. Is it overkill? Not according to AMD, which believes the generous allocation of memory gives the card some future proofing. Of course, honest-to-goodness future proofing is unattainable. That's not the point, however. AMD decided to design and build a card that is simultaneously attractive to gamers and professionals alike, and is pitching the excess memory (compared to 8GB cards) giving the Radeon VII some legs. "This new GPU is meant... Read more...
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su unveiled the Radeon VII during a keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show last month. Although the Radeon VII was billed as the first 7nm GPU, fundamentally it is similar to the Radeon Instinct MI50, which was announced late last year. Of course the Radeon Instinct MI50 is targeted at HPC and Deep Learning applications, while the Radeon VII is technically the first enthusiast-class gaming GPU for consumers. Regardless, the fact remains that the same 7nm Vega 20-based chip is at the heart of both cards. Although it is still based on the company’s Vega architecture, the GPU powering the Radeon VII isn’t a simply shrink of an existing design. There have been... Read more...
Update 2/72019, 9:28AM: Our full Radeon VII review with copious benchmark data is now live, if you'd like details on how this MSI card should perform.  In just one more day, AMD's recently announced Radeon VII graphics card will be available to purchase. That's also when reviews will hit the web (ours included). In the meantime, several of AMD's hardware partners have erected Radeon VII product pages on their websites, including both MSI and Gigabyte. The Radeon VII is an interesting product for the fact that it's the first consumer gaming card to feature a GPU built on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process, and specifically Vega 20. It's not actually the first 7nm GPU product, as AMD kicked... Read more...
AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su took the wraps off the company’s first 7nm GPU based on its Vega architecture at CES 2019 in Las Vegas last month. Dr. Su’s keynote underscored the company’s lead against its rivals with respect to silicon process technology, and AMD’s new Radeon VII is one of multiple new products in its graphics and processors portfolios that’s built on a cutting-edge 7nm manufacturing node. And while AMD’s Radeon VII is essentially a process shrink of the company's Radeon Vega architecture with a few tweaks and fixes, along with that process geometry optimization should come optimizations for power consumption, clock speed, performance and other fine...

AMD recently unveiled its Radeon VII graphics card, which for the first time introduces a 7-nanometer GPU processor to the consumer gaming market (as opposed to the 7nm Radeon Instinct MI60, which is a workstation accelerator for deep learning workloads). We are all eager to find out how the card performs, and some leaked 3DMark benchmarks may provide a glimpse. Before we get to the scores, let's recap the card's specs. The Radeon VII features a 7nm Vega GPU underneath the hood with 60 compute units (CUs) and 3,840 stream processors, and is clocked up to 1.8GHz. It also boasts a whopping 16GB of second-generation high bandwidth memory (HBM2)—that's twice as much as the Radeon RX Vega 64... Read more...
Earlier this month at CES, AMD CEO Lisa Su unveiled its first consumer graphics card -- the Radeon VII -- built on the company's new 7nm manufacturing process. Now, we're getting a look at one of the first third-party cards based on the new GPU that will be arriving for gamers, and it comes from ASRock. As you can see, the ASRock Radeon VII Phantom Gaming is strictly a reference design card and about the only real change that we can see versus the AMD-branded card are ASRock/Phantom Gaming stickers on the center of the triple fans. At this point, we don't know if all third-party cards that will see the light of day will all be reference designs, or if there will be freedom... Read more...
One of the pleasant surprises at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week was AMD's unveiling of its Radeon VII graphics card. Based on a refresh of its Vega GPU architecture, it is the first consumer graphics card for gaming to feature silicon that is built from a 7-nanometer manufacturing process, though it definitely will not be the last. Bear in mind that we are talking about consumer cards for gaming, and not graphics cards in general. AMD actually has another 7nm GPU product, the Radeon Instinct MI60, which it launched last November. That was the first implementation of a 7nm GPU, but it's a professional accelerator for high performance computing (HPC) and deep learning applications.... Read more...
AMD is looking to become competitive again in the high-end PC graphics market, roughly a year and a half after it launched the Radeon RX Vega 64. The new Radeon VIIis based on new 7nm process tech and is equipped with a capacious 16GB of HBM2. While AMD gave us a few hand-picked benchmarks that showed how the Radeon VII performs against the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the GeForce RTX 2080 when it first announced the card earlier this week, benchmark figures for roughly two dozen games were hidden in plain sight. Benchmarks for many popular games were included in the footnotes section of AMD's press release and are presented in the chart below: As you can see, the Radeon VII is faster across the...
