Sapphire and XFX Prep 7nm AMD Radeon VII Graphics Cards
Both XFX and Sapphire have revealed that they will be releasing Radeon VII graphics cards under their brand names, though at this time both company only seem to be selling AMD's reference design.
Earlier this week, images of ASRock's Radeon VII graphics card leaked onto the web, though it is worth noting that the company has not listed the graphics card on their website. Bost Sapphire and XFX have listed the Radeon VII on their respective websites, which is pretty much as official as it gets.
Strangely, XFX's Radeon VII webpage does not include any images of the company's boxart or their version of the Radeon VII. Stranger still is the fact that XFX lists the wrong specifications for the graphics card (link), making it possible that their listing is a placeholder. At the time of writing XFX's Radeon VII webpage lists the specifications of AMD's RX Vega 56.
Sapphire, conversely, has revealed their custom boxart for their Radeon VII and a graphics card that appears to lack any distinct Sapphire branding, maintaining the clean look of AMD's reference design. The company has also listed the correct specifications for the graphics card, listing a 1,400MHz base clock, a 1750MHz boost clock, 16GB of HBM2 VRAM and 1TB/s of total memory bandwidth.
AMD's Radeon VII graphics cards will release on February 7th with an MSRP of $699. These graphics cards will be available on AMD.com and from AMD's AIB partners.
