  • Let's Ogle Us Some 7nm Handling the AMD Radeon VII Graphics Card

This morning, hot off the heels of AMD's Radeon 7 announcement, AMD boss lady Dr Lisa Su gave us our first look at their new 3rd Gen of Ryzen desktop CPU coming in mid 2019. AMD says it's up to 29 percent faster in gaming applications than its previous flagship, the Radeon RX Vega 64.

Basically, you're looking at a 12% increase in performance with this AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processor.

Radeon IV isn't just targeted to gamers though, content creators will be excited to see an nearly 30 percent boost in performance across a swag of common content creation software. But since Nvidia has focused on a newer technology "ray-tracing" instead of performance increase, not that there wasn't a performance increase from GTX 10 series to RTX 20 series, it is very hard to choose a victor between RTX 2080 and Radeon VII. The Radeon VII has a very great price/performance ratio when going for extreme gaming at 4K. That could mean a 15-20 percent jump by launch, once AMD has had time to further optimize things, both on the hardware and software (drivers) side.

To this end, Dr. Su recapped on the significant strides made by the consumer Ryzen and server-focussed Epyc processors, built on an all-new architecture and connectivity fabric created to scale easily to 32 cores and 64 cores, respectively, bringing more compute per socket to both ecosystems than ever before.

At CES 2019, AMD presented preliminary information about the third generation of AMD Ryzen CPUs, which are expected to be available in mid-2019.

As for when you'll be able to get one yourself, there's actually not long to wait. For example, in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Monster Hunter World, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands the AMD Radeon VII pushes an average framerate of 36fps (in 4K on max settings) and in Total War: Warhammer 2 it pushes 35fps.

AMD Radeon VII will go on sale on February 7th, 2019, for $699 Dollars.

That's mighty competitive with a GeForce RTX 2080 based card, which typically come in at around the $770 point. We don't have the full benchmark for how the game performed, but it was gorgeous at a glance.
