AMD announces Radeon VII graphics: Zen 2 on track

Whether or not the Radeon VII can fight back against Nvidia's dominance in the graphics card space remains to be seen, but the new GPU definitely seems to be impressive from what was shown on stage today.

At its CES 2019 keynote, AMD debuted an unnamed octa-core, 16-thread part based on the company's new 7nm Zen 2 architecture. Read about the key features of the AMD Radeon VII graphics below.

- The Radeon 7 (Radeon VII) was announced today as their new high-end GPU. Well, Dr. Lisa Su has been relatively cagey about the exact GPU specifications at the heart of of the new high-performance card. It provides up to 27 percent higher performance in the popular open source 3D creation application Blender7, up to 27 percent higher performance in the professional video editing, color correction and visual effects application DaVinci Resolve 158, and up to 62 percent higher performance in the OpenCL™ LuxMark compute benchmark9 compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card.

The AMD Radeon VII GPU is expected to start shipping on February 7th 2019 with a recommend retail price of $699 excluding taxes, which is roughly £660 including 20 percent tax when converted directly.

Enabling real-time 3D and compute applications: The Radeon VII graphics card delivers the performance required for demanding 3D rendering and video editing applications, and next-generation compute workloads.

After the Radeon VII demo at its CES 2019 keynote, AMD CEO Lisa Su talked a bit more about gaming and then moved straight into the Zen 2 reveal. The recent launch of the RTX 2060 demonstrated that Nvidia's Turing architecture can hit Vega 64 where it hurts, with that $350 GPU delivering 95 percent of Vega 64 performance. That said, AMD did show some slides showing performance that was equivalent to the RTX 2080 and even greater than it in an unspecified Vulkan title. Its 16GB of HBM2 (second-generation high bandwidth memory) as mentioned pushes through ultra-fast speeds.

Another big of good news is Ryzen 3rd Generation is sticking to the same AM4 socket, so its new CPUs will work with existing 300 and 400-series AMD motherboards.
