AMD Unveils World’s First 7nm Gaming GPU ‘Radeon VII’ #CES 2019

AMD 7nm Vega GPU

Most notably, the new Ryzen CPUs will be built on a 7nm process, putting AMD significantly ahead of rival Intel.

AMD boasts that the card, which packs a gamer-friendly triple cooling system, offers 25 per cent more performance, at the same power, as previous Vega graphics.

Higher performance for less power while using the same number of cores and threads is a clear win for AMD, but it's to be expected given that third-generation Ryzen CPU cores are built on a 7nm process, whereas Intel's desktop CPUs are still on the ageing 14nm.

NVIDIA had its own big CES 2019 press conference a few days ago where it made the GeForce RTX 2060 graphcis card official, while it was AMD's turn yesterday with their CES 2019 presser and the unveiling of the new Radeon VII graphics card.

Just in case you'd forgotten what AMD's Dr Lisa Su was talking about for a second...

Jaguar Land Rover: 4500 jobs to go in shake-up
A Ford spokesman said the auto maker now assumes that any Brexit deal would keep tariff-free trade between Britain and Europe. The Jaguar Land Rover workforce is to be cut by 6,000, or 15 per cent, with a decision to axe a further 4,500 jobs this year.

She showed off its capabilities with a live demonstration of it running the yet-to-be-released Devil May Cry 5 at 4K resolution with ultra settings, at framerates "way above 60fps". Given the highly-parallel nature of the NAMD software, it's not too surprising that the 64-core Epyc walked away with a decisive victory, but the circa-20% performance advantage for the Epyc is a good bit greater than the simple difference in core counts (64 vs. 56) would imply. AMD has promised a 27% jump to users in Blender and a 62% jump in DaVinci Resolve 15 for GPU compute workloads. AMD claims 4x floating-point performance and 2x performance per socket compared to current generation Intel Xeon 8180 CPUs. It also provides seamless, high-refresh HDR5 gaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p and 4K, and enables next-generation photo and visual creation applications on razor-sharp, vibrant 8K monitors.

As for when you'll be able to get one yourself, there's actually not long to wait.

The new GPU will be available from February 7 for $699.

AMD also bundle Divison 2 with the new Radeon VII GPU and some Ryzen GPUs. How well they compare in terms of performance, meanwhile, we'll have to wait for the benchmarks to find out.
