2019 launch for second-generation EPYC CPUs confirmed at AMD keynote

Overall, AMD claims the second-generation Vega architecture it's using for the Radeon VII makes it 25-percent more potent at the same power levels.

AMD has officially revealed the AMD Radeon VII, a graphics card featuring the first 7nm gaming GPU, at CES 2019 today.

According to the benchmarks shown off by AMD during the unveiling, Vega VII manages to hold its own against NVIDIA's new RTX cards as well, achieving similar framerates to an RTX 2080 or beating them out across Battlefield V, Fortnite, and Strange Brigade.

If a gamer-specific GPU wasn't enough to convince you that AMD loves gaming, Su brought Phil Spencer from Xbox onto the stage to discuss the two companies ongoing collaboration.

The Radeon VII comes with support for the DirectX 12 and Vulkan 3D APIs, allowing for better gaming performance ranging from 25 up to 42 percent improvements depending on the game, also when compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 GPU.

Radeon IV isn't just targeted to gamers though, content creators will be excited to see an nearly 30 percent boost in performance across a swag of common content creation software.

It won't just be games where the Radeon VII shines, mind.

While we always enjoy a bit of juicy rivalry between Nvidia and AMD, Huang's comments seem a bit premature, as it's unlikely he's seen the Radeon VII in action, or knows the full rundown of specs.

"It provides seamless, high-refresh gaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p, and 4K".

As for when you'll be able to get one yourself, there's actually not long to wait. The GPU will also be bundled with upcoming games like Devil May Cry 5, Tom Clancy's The Division 2, and Resident Evil 2 for a limited time. Now it's even better than to its available eighth-generation Intel Core i9 processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-series graphics. The AMD Radeon VII graphics card will be available from February 7, 2019 for $699 United States dollars. Meanwhile, last year's Ryzen 7 2700X scores 1754 points in the same test, so we are looking at a decent performance bump.
