AMD’s Radeon VII is world’s first 7nm gaming GPU:
CES 2019 was the first time ever that AMD gave a keynote at an International Trade Show. So naturally everyone was excited to see what the President and CEO Lisa Su had to say, and she didn’t disappoint.
Lookking for an upgrade AMD fans? Well, a Vega-based GPU with 16GB of HBM2 memory and over 1TBps of bandwidth. Enough to make the company boast about its superiority over the counterparts. Denying the benchmarks shown where the Radeon 7 clearly beats the RTX 2080. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said “The performance is lousy” claiming that the RTX 2080 will crush the Radeon 7 in benchmarks.
The Radeon VII is due to launch on Feb. 7 at an MSRP of $699. It’s not the most expensive GPU on the market right there, unlike Nvidia , Radeon VII buyers will also get copies of The Division 2, Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake and Devil May Cry 5.
AMD’s 3rd-gen Ryzen processors will be the rulers this year:
So AMD basically said F*** Intel with their 3rd Gen Ryzen processors that are due release in the middle of 2019. No pricing information has been revealed yet, but in a comparison against the i9 9900k in a cinebench benchmark the AMD’s 8 core 16 thread processor slightly outperformed the i9 9900k.
“This system is the most advanced PC gaming hardware in the world, together in one system — third gen Ryzen, [and] Radeon VII,” Su said.
Also the EPYC processors (that are specifically server based or workstation based outperformed the Intel’s best Xeon 8180 that too, 2 of them together.
Its so far so good for AMD for the time being. And 2019 is the greater year for the company as more and more gamers are being drawn towards the Ryzen chips.
