Today AMD announced the Radeon VII (Radeon Seven) graphics card, with the world’s first GPU built on the 7 nm silicon fabrication process. As the name suggest it based on the 7 nm “Vega 20” silicon with 60 compute units (3,840 stream processors), and a 4096-bit HBM2 memory interface, the chip leverages 7 nm to dial up engine clock speeds to unprecedented levels (above 1.80 GHz possibly). According to CEO Lisa Su, that the Radeon VII performs competitively with NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2080 graphics card. The card comes with a 16 GB of 4096-bit HBM2 memory.
The Radeon VII features a triple-fan cooling solution with a design focus on low noise. Radeon VII will be priced at USD $699 and available from February 7th.
