AMD officially announces its next-generation high performance gaming GPUs, Radeon VII

AMD 7nm Vega GPU AMD Launches Next Radeon VII GPU, the World's First 7nm GPU

With AMD Radeon FreeSync technology, the popular, standards-based adaptive sync technology supported by more than 550 gaming monitors, gamers can experience smooth gameplay at every level.

While Monday was the Intel keynote at CES 2019, this morning AMD took the spotlight with Lisa Su's keynote in Las Vegas.

The company's GPUs have received less attention of late, yet Dr. Su had a surprise for gaming enthusiasts who thought the red team was giving up the premium end of the consumer market until the next-generation "Navi" architecture surfaced. At $699, AMD's high-end GPU will also be more expensive than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, which is now available at $349.

Using a 7nm manufacturing process (much like the Radeon 7) and based on the company's new "Zen 2" x86 core architecture that they use for their server-grade Epyc processors, AMD said their 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs will "absolutely set the bar on performance, technology and power efficiency".

Equipped with 60 compute units/3840 stream processors running at up to 1.8GHz and 16GB of ultra-fast HBM2 memory (second-generation High-Bandwidth Memory), the Radeon VII graphics card enables high-performance gaming and ultra-high quality visuals. Such performance hegemony is to be expected from a more muscular design, of course.

AMD will also give the highly anticipated Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancy's The Division 2 for free with the purchase of an eligible AMD Radeon VII graphics card or Radeon VII powered PC.

- 2nd Gen EPYC with 7nm Zen 2 seeing 2x performance per socket, 4x floating performance per socket. A demo shown on Windows put a early sample of 3rd Gen Ryzen outperforming an Intel Core i9 9900K while having ~30% lower power consumption. 3rd Gen Ryzen will be launching in mid-2019, with Q2 or Q3 availability now planned. The benchmark shows this mystery chip scoring 2023 points, which is nearly identical to the Core i9 9900K.

AMD has used the prestigous pretext of CES to reaffirm its near-term CPU and GPU ambition. The new Ryzen processors will be available in mid-2019.

2019 is shaping up to be another very interesting year for AMD.
