After NVIDIA, today it is AMD’s turn to present itself on the stage of the CES 2019 in Las Vegas. Well, the Californian company has dropped the “bomb”, announcing the video card of AMD Radeon VII, the first consumer GPU with a 7nm production process. The latter is designed for gaming in 4K.
In particular, according to what was reported by various media, it is clearly a high-end video card intended for enthusiast users, or those who want to play on PC without compromise. The 7nm architecture allows a performance increase of about 25% without going to affect consumption, at least according to what was announced by the Californian company.
AMD Radeon VII features 60 computing units operating at the maximum frequency of 1.8 GHz and 16GB of HBM memory. During the conference held at CES 2019, AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, showed the GPU in action, with Devil May Cry 5 running at over 100 FPS in 4K. The gameplay seemed pretty fluid, and many people present at the event did not notice any drop in framerate. However, it will obviously be necessary how the video card will behave once it is in the hands of the experts.
The new GPU will be available in the United States starting next February 7th at a price of $699. The cost also includes the bundle of Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 and The Division 2 video games. Please note that the US price of the NVIDIA RTX 2080 is 799 dollars, so AMD is focusing on a lower price range than its direct competitors.
