AMD Radeon VII launch date — the graphics card with a 7nm chipset


#1

At their CES keynote presentation, AMD announced their new line of high end graphic cards, the AMD Radeon VII. The new GPU will hopefully bring long-awaited competition to Nvidia's offering of high-end graphics cards, and is poised to take on the Nvidia RTX 2080.

Pricing is an issue here. Its priced the same price as the nvidia 2080 rtx. Unless it has a big performance advantage people are more likely to go for the 2080 as it has ray tracing and dlss which the vega 7 lacks.

It should have been priced $50 cheaper.

I tend to agree with you on that. The price was the make or break point. And while ray tracing isn’t the deal breaker feature yet as there isn’t a lot of games that has it implemented, it is something to look out for the future. At $699 the Radeon hopefully is actually better than the 2080, otherwise it’s a hard sell.

Lets hope the AIB partners do a version with less vram to drop the price
