The new GPU will be available from February 7 for $699. AMD says its flagship 7nm Ryzen CPU will offer similar or better performance than Intel's flagship Core i9-9900K desktop processor.

The Radeon VII is AMD's second-gen Vega architecture given 7nm form and now squeezed into a gaming card, and team red has promised RTX 2080-level gaming performance from the new GPU. The Radeon IV will be able to compete with the dominating Nvidia's new GTX 2080.

The Radeon VII is created to offer a proper response to NVIDIA's RTX 2080 which, until now, did not have a competitor on the graphics card market.

AMD is billing the Radeon VII as the go-to card for content creators as well, showing more than 25 percent performance increases across Blender, DaVinci Resolve 15, and Adobe Premiere.

Su showed off the Radeon VII's power on stage with a series of benchmark tests and a 4K demo of Devil May Cry 5, which mostly ran at between 70 - 120 fps. The GPU claims to offer up to 16GB of high bandwidth memory, with "industry-leading" 1tb/sec memory bandwidth.

For instance, running games at 4K and maximum settings, gamers can expect a 35% performance boost in Battlefield V, a 25% in Fortnite, and a 42% in Strange Brigade. We were actually hoping it would come out sooner, but the time frame is in line with AMD's roadmap, so it doesn't look like the company is running into any potholes or snags.

Spector reiterated a point Su had already made that unlike other forms of entertainment gamers love community and love feedback.

Now while AMD claimed that this new GPU targets 4K gaming, it's obvious that in some titles it can not come close to it.
