AMD Reveals their Radeon VII GPU - The First 7nm Gaming GPU 

AMD has officially revealed their Radeon VII (Seven) at their CES 2019 keynote, the world's first gaming graphics cards to utilise TSMC's 7nm lithography node. 

The graphics card is said to offer 25% more performance than the RX Vega 64 at the same level of power consumption, while also offering industry-leading memory bandwidth thanks to the graphics cards 16GB of HBM2 memory. This graphics card delivers over 1TB/s of memory bandwidth. 

Strangely, AMD has opted to give their Radeon Vega VII 60 compute units, which is less than the 64 offered on their Vega 64, though these Vega compute units will be running at up to 1.8GHz, which is a significant uplift over the company's existing Vega offerings.

In gaming, AMD's Radeon VII graphics card uses AMD's 2nd Generation Vega architecture, offering performance gains of 25-45% over the company's original Vega graphics cards. This gives AMD performance levels that are similar to Nvidia's Turing-based RTX 2080 graphics card, but without support for Nvidia's RTX technologies.    

Right now, AMD plans to launch their Radeon VII graphics card on February 7th, launching with a game bundle that includes Resident Evil 2, The Division 2 and Devil May Cry V.

AMD plans to launch their Radeon VII graphics card for $699, which translates to around £660 in the UK if you include VAT. Two eight-pin PCIe power connectors will be used to power the graphics card.

On par or better than a 2080 ? Damn that's impressive especially at $100 less.Quote

I like their choice for naming the card. It puts the main selling point up front without being douchy about it like Nvidia was with RTX.Quote

This is exactly what I want to see from AMD honestly. Good solid FPS battling with NVIDIA and on equal terms!

I'd still get a 2080 however for the RT/DLSS features...unless AMD has some unannounced component that will achieve the same principle (I could be unaware of it as well ). The choice isn't cuz I'm biased toward one company or the other but I'd rather get the RT/DLSS capable card simply to use that feature if I choose to - just how I am is all.Quote

"performance gains of 25-45%"
"25% more performance at the same power"
