  • AMD Radeon VII front

During AMD's CES press conference, CEO Lisa Su presented the first look at Devil May Cry 5 running on PC powered by the newly announced Radeon VII video card.

While AMD has no current hardware-based answer to Nvidia's DLSS or real-time ray tracing techniques enabled by the Turing architecture, AMD did wheel out a developer from Tom Clancy's The Division 2 to point out that it will support advanced features found in Vega like shader intrinsics, rapid packed math, and asynchronous compute.

The GPU landscape is more nebulous, though the introduction of Radeon VII is a left-field move that could cause a problem for the high-end RTX GPUs: we have only another month to find out for ourselves. AMD gave a public preview live on stage at CES together with James Prior running a Radeon VII graphics card and an 8-core Ryzen 3000 series processor. It delivers up to 35 percent higher performance in Battlefield V when compared to the Radeon RX Vega 64 card, and it delivers up to 25 percent higher performance in Fortnite. AMD claims the device will offer 25% more performance while using the same level of power. "Radeon VII has better performance in some of the latest Vulkan games like "Strange Brigade" and is very competitive at both DX11 and DX 12 games".

As disclosed by AMD, the Radeon VII graphics card will be available beginning February 7, with a price tag of $699. The Vega 10 is built on GlobalFoundries' 14nm process; the Vega 20 is built on TSMC's 7nm process.

Just in case you'd forgotten what AMD's Dr Lisa Su was talking about for a second... The new card's memory subsystem has also been uprated: it's still using HBM2, but it's using 16GB clocked at 2Gb/s with a 4,096-bit bus compared to 8GB clocked at 1.89Gb/s with a 2,048-bit bus.

AMD Radeon VII graphics brings maximum performance for hardcore enthusiast gamers, delivering incredible, ultra-smooth gaming experiences at consistently high FPS, in 1440p, ultrawide and 4K resolutions. AMD then put a 3rd-Gen Ryzen processor up against an Intel Core i9-9900K CPU in an on-stage demo, where the Ryzen CPU outperformed the Intel chip in a Cinebench multi-thread benchmark.
