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... 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... 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... Read more...
In case anyone is wondering, NVIDIA is not feeling threatened by AMD's recently unveiled Radeon VII graphics card, which is the first implementation of a 7-nanometer GPU in a consumer gaming product. During a Q&A session with members of the media, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang called the overall performance of the Radeon VII "lousy" and said his company's GeForce RTX 2080, which is priced the same, will "crush" it. NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang At Private Press Q&A With HotHardware And Other Press That's really just barely scratching the surface of what Huang had to say—he railed on AMD's product... Read more...
Earlier today AMD officially announced its new Radeon VII graphics card, which is based on the 7nm Vega 20 GPU. Since we first reported on the unveiling of the Radeon VII, we've learned a few more details about this high-powered gaming card. For starters, the card features 16GB of 2.0 Gbps HMB2 memory using a 4096-bit memory bus. Although we still don't know the base clock for the GPU, it will boost to 1800MHz, which is quite an improvement over the 1546MHz boost clock of the current Radeon RX Vega 64. Single-precision performance has seen a slight uptick from 12.7 TFLOPs on the Radeon RX... Read more...
As expected, AMD today announced its latest high-end graphics card for gamers built using 7-nanometer process technology. However, AMD threw us for a bit of a loop with regards to the naming of the new graphics card series. While we all had assumed (based on the logo trademark) that it would be called Radeon Vega II, it is in fact called Radeon VII.  Radeon VII will be clocked at speeds up to 1.8GHz and will feature 16GB of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM2). The GPU features 60 compute units and AMD claims that it offers a 25 percent uplift in performance compared to the Radeon Vega 64 at... Read more...
