During this year’s CES trade show, AMD surprised by unveiling a new graphics card in the worst – class for consumers. On the menu was the Radeon VII with the graphics circuit Vega 20 under the hood, which also happens to be the world’s first manufactured at 7 nanometers. The circuit is accompanied by 16 GB of HBM2 memory, which on a 4,096-bit bus can offer a record-breaking memory bandwidth of 1 TB / s.
The launch of the Radeon VII is nailed down to February 7, and before that, the card is starting to appear in the cabins of the technology press, including SweClocker’s test lab. The editorial staff is currently in full swing testing the performance of the new flagship to see if AMD can take on Nvidia’s equally priced model Geforce RTX 2080.
