AMD has announced Radeon VII, its next-generation 7nm graphics card to compete with Nvidia’s High and Mighty GTX 2080.

AMD has been falling behind Nvidia for quite a long time in the race for bringing to the market the best graphics card, specifically the high end graphics cards. It has fundamentally been pushing value for the money cards like the RX 580. However, at CES, AMD says it has a GPU that can easily compete with Nvidia’s RTX 2080. It’s known as the Radeon VII (“Seven”), and it utilizes the AMD’s first 7nm graphics chip that AMD has shown us once before.

AMD states that it will deliver Radeon VII on February seventh for $699, as indicated by the organization. That is the same cost as the standard Nvidia RTX 2080.

Here it is, the big, lustrous graphics card that AMD’s CEO Lisa Su held up onstage during the event:

AMD states that the second-gen Vega architecture gives 25 percent more performance at the same power from past Vega graphics, and the company showed it running Devil May Cry 5 at 4K resolution, ultra settings, and frame rates “way above 60 fps.” AMD says it has a terabyte-per-second of memory bandwidth. 

With respect to existing games, AMD didn’t showcase the card running much of the games, however AMD claims that you’ll see a 25 percent increased performance in Fortnite and a 35 percent increased performance in Battlefield V, and in addition provides 27 percent (or more) boosts in various kinds of content creation, compared, in contrast with the Radeon RX Vega 64.

The Icing on the cake is that AMD says it’ll toss in free copies of the Resident Evil 2 remake, Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2 with each new AMD Radeon VII designs card bought or a gaming PC that accompanies one in its system. AMD says that the Alienware Area-51 Threadripper gaming desktop will most likely be the first one that features the Radeon VII.

For those of you who are curious about specifications of this glorious card, here are some of them ; the ones we have so far from AMD’s press release:

  • 60 compute units
  • 3840 stream processors running at up to 1.8GHz
  • 16GB of HBM2 memory
  • 1 TB/s memory bandwidth
  • 4,096-bit memory interface

The genuine question here is that whether AMD will have the capacity to deliver enough of this GPU at a sufficiently competitive price — since GPU costs fluctuate up and down at retail, as per supply and demand of the market — with the goal that gamers can really manage to get one. As the first gen Radeon RX Vega GPUs were in fact on par with Nvidia on the basis of speed, however, the problem was that they harder to find and then to purchase.

All in all , we are having great hopes and expectations from this card. Will AMD be able to dominate the world of graphics cards this time ? I wonder!
