AMD's early CES 2019 keynote was mostly a rehash of other points the company has addressed already at the event, including its new 12nm Ryzen Mobile parts and the company's general collaboration with Microsoft and others in the gaming and creative industries. In both cases, the Radeon VII was just one frame ahead at an average of 62fps on both games compared to the RTX's 61fps.

That said, AMD did show some slides showing performance that was equivalent to the RTX 2080 and even greater than it in an unspecified Vulkan title.

Equipped with 60 compute units/3840 stream processors running at up to 1.8GHz and 16GB of ultra-fast HBM2 memory (second-generation High-Bandwidth Memory), the Radeon VII graphics card enables high-performance gaming and ultra-high quality visuals.

AMD's third-generation Ryzen processor with 7nm technology.

AMD took to the stage at CES 2019 today to take the wraps off of Radeon VII, the world's first 7nm gaming graphics card. Radeon VII.5? Radeon VII+? Read about the key features of the AMD Radeon VII graphics below. AMD is claiming that the 7nm shrink of the Vega GPU allows it to generate up to 25% more performance at the same performance level as the previous generation.

If it can match the performance of the RTX 2080, however, Nvidia has already established that you can charge up to $800 for such a card.

The Radeon VII goes on sale of Feb 7 for $699. There's a chance that across the board of DX11 and the dwindling number of DX12 games that the Radeon VII might start to lag behind a touch.

The small chip has a unique triplet design, which has a die with 8 cores and 16 threads and a larger I/O die, specifically designed for desktops, that feeds data from AMD's Zen 2 architecture to the rest of the system. With price parity against the RTX 2080, AMD is clearly angling to challenge that chip, but we won't know how effective that challenge will be until we have hardware in-house.

To this end, Dr. Su recapped on the significant strides made by the consumer Ryzen and server-focussed Epyc processors, built on an all-new architecture and connectivity fabric created to scale easily to 32 cores and 64 cores, respectively, bringing more compute per socket to both ecosystems than ever before.
