AMD Radeon 7: The specs for gaming looks monstrous, release date announced

Let's Ogle Us Some 7nm: Handling the AMD Radeon VII Graphics Card AMD launches world's first 7nm gaming GPU Radeon VII for $699

TSMC's 7nm production is likely to be quite expensive in the case of a 331 mm silicon chip, as will the four HBM2 RAM stacks on the 4096-bit memory interface.

AMD Radeon VII will not probably compete with TITAN RTX, it will not probably compete with RTX 2080 Ti either.

In response to Huang's remarks, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said that the company is very excited and she would "suggest that he hasn't seen it yet".

"He also riffed on AMD's G-Sync competitor, FreeSync saying, "(FreeSync) was never proven to work. And if we turn on DLSS we'll crush it.

Like everyone else, we're eager to get our hands on AMD's new Radeon VII graphics card and run it through a gamut of games to see how it performs, and especially how it compares to other high-end GPUs.

Huang's comments don't appear to be based on any special knowledge about the Radeon VII. "I think by the time we talk more about ray tracing the consumer's gonna see the benefit". However, according to AMD CEO Lisa Su, it the company is now in "deep development" on DirectX Ray Tracing support for future Radeon graphics cards.

Huang continued by talking about FreeSync, more specifically about the narrative that NVIDIA finally admitted defeat to the open-source technology.

At the launch of the Radeon VII, AMD said it was the most high-performance GPU it has launched to date.

As you would expect, the Radeon VII will offer full FreeSync 2 HDR support, with AMD proudly pointing to its ever-growing FreeSync ecosystem and a total monitor count that now exceeds 550. AMD doesn't mention the motherboard or storage drive, but does say the games were benched at 4K at max settings.

Radeon VII goes on sale next month and we'll have reviews to go along with it.

It's possible that AMD considers such a product as worthwhile because Nvidia concentrated on Turing on Raytracing and thus does not bring out the highest rasterisation performance from the chips - thus the Radeon 7 should be within striking distance of the Geforce RTX 2080 [VIDEO]. For comparison, Nvidia's RTX 2060 sports a starting price of $346.
