AMD unveils Radeon VII graphics card

Base on 7nm Vega chip

For the 50th anniversary, AMD has unveiled its first-ever CES keynote to reveal its next-generation Vega graphics card. The Radeon VII sports AMD's 7nm process and it should be enough powerful to compete against NVIDIA's RTX graphics cards in 4K resolutions, virtual reality (VR) and 3D rendering.

AMD has built the Radeon VII graphics card with 60 compute units and 3840 stream processors running at 1.8GHz. Furthermore the card offers 16GB of HBM2 memory and up to 1TB/s memory bandwidth over a 4'096-bit memory interface. In the real-world, this card should be perfect for 3D rendering and video editing applications. According to AMD, the Radeon VII should be way more fast than current Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card.

For gamers, AMD claims that the next-generation of graphics cards can deal with 4K resolutions and high frame-rates. At the show, AMD has shown several games running on the new Radeon VII graphics card. For example in Battlefield V and Strange Brigade, the card outperform the previous generation with up to 40% more frame rates. Furthermore the card looks slightly faster than the $799 NVIDIA RTX 2080 graphics card.

Last but not least, the company will be providing Day-0 game driver support with "up-to-the minute game optimizations for performance enhancements". AMD’s Radeon VII will be available on February 7 for $699. For a limited time, you will receive Devil May Cry V, The Division 2 and the Resident Evil 2 remake for free with the graphics card.
