The Radeon 7 uses a slightly slimmed-down shape of the Vega 20 graphics chip. The Vega VII will have a TDP of 300W, 5W higher than the Vega 64 and almost 100W more than NVIDIA's RTX 2080.

Chief Executive Officer Lisa Su, during a keynote address at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, gave a preview of AMD's third-generation Ryzen CPU chips for desktop users.

"The performance is lousy", said Huang, speaking to Gizmodo. Lying between the 1440p-gaming-ideal GeForce RTX 2070 cards at around $500 and below the 4K-capable RTX 2080 cards at around $800, the Radeon VII hits one into the gap between two of Nvidia's high-end cards. Overall, the AMD Radeon VII can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, that is, until the flagship card from NVIDIA that it is not hold. TSMC's 7nm production is likely to be quite expensive in the case of a 331 mm silicon chip, as will the four HBM2 RAM stacks on the 4096-bit memory interface. Whether frame rates will turn this into a single or a triple, we'll have to see in testing. And that wasn't his only jab at AMD-Huang also said that Nvidia's G-Sync essentially has no competition because AMD's FreeSync doesn't work. "And if we turn on ray tracing we'll crush it".

Huang continued by talking about FreeSync, more specifically about the narrative that NVIDIA finally admitted defeat to the open-source technology. The truth is most of the FreeSync monitors do not work. The system AMD used for the comparison tests was an Intel i7 7700K rig, with 16GB of 3000Mhz DDR4, Windows 10, and the AMD Driver 18.50, with all the games tested at "4K Max Settings".

At the launch of the Radeon VII, AMD said it was the most high-performance GPU it has launched to date. Now about prices: the reference card in performance is worth exactly $ 700, and start its sales will take place on 7 February this year.

AMD CEO Lisa Su responded to Huang's comments, suggesting he probably hasn't seen the new GPU before revealing why AMD isn't all in on ray tracing just yet. About 25 per cent improved performance on average.
