Earlier this week, we have heard several rumors about the upcoming Radeon VII. According to some sources, AMD had available only 5000 units. The rumors has been debunked by AMD, according to the company we should see plenty of stock available already at launch. AIB partners will also sell the Radeon VII with 16GB HBM2 graphics memory.

The rumors indicated that only 5000 production units would be made, AMD now has denied that rumor without telling how many cards we will see on day one. As you might know, the Radeon VII graphics card comes 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.
