  • Announced top-end AMD Radeon VII

These omissions reportedly led Huang to say that the Radeon VII "barely keeps up with a 2080".

PCWorld questions how Huang would know exactly how the Radeon VII would compare to the RTX 2080, for example, as such data isn't readily accessible. "Quite extraordinarily he claimed "(FreeSync) was never proven to work.

The triple-fan design of the Radeon VII is a good indication that this card will be a powerful, hard-running beastie.

HardOCP has created a table of benchmark results featuring the new Radeon VII by distilling info provided in the AMD press-deck footnotes. "And if we turn on ray tracing we'll crush it", he added.

What makes the Radeon VII interesting is its price, and while Nvidia might have the upper hand with RTX in terms of ray tracing and DLSS, which have yet to be seriously implemented in games, the Radeon VII has a $100 lower suggested retail price compared to the RTX 2080, as the price of Nvidia's RTX 2080 Founders Edition is now $799, while AMD asks for $699, with three nice titles bundled with the card. "They do not even work with AMD's graphics cards".

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. As FreeSync has been tested numerous times by ourselves and various distinguished tech sites, and in HEXUS labs as recently as a couple of weeks ago, (iiyama G-Master GB2560HSU-B1 review) we don't agree with Huang's assertion.

Although most performance slides are focusing on the so-called content creators applications like DaVinci, Premiere, Luxmark, Blender, and others, there is a single slide that compares both the RTX 2080 and RX Vega 64 to the upcoming Radeon VII. To further drive in the point, AMD CEO Lisa Su demoed the game Devil May Cry 5 in 4K at the company's CES presentation.

AMD's latest GPUs do not support ray tracing, and will cost $699 when they're available February 7.

During the AMD's keynote yesterday, Dr. Lisa Su talked about the Radeon VII while several graphs splashed on the big screen behind her. About 25 per cent improved performance on average.
