AMD may not have been able to provide us with the official SRP of its new high-performance Radeon VII graphics card, but it looks like its AiB partner, ASRock, has just let the cat out of the bag about its pricing. It is created to deliver exceptional performance and wonderful experiences for the latest AAA, esports and Virtual Reality (VR) titles, demanding 3D rendering and video editing applications, and next-generation compute workloads. The graphics chipset also offers twice the memory and 2.1x memory bandwidth when compared to the Radeon RX Vega 64 with its 16GB HMB2 RAM and 1 TB/s memory bandwidth. Enabling maximum settings for extreme framerates at the highest resolutions, the Radeon VII provides seamless, high-refresh HDRgaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p and 4K, while propelling next-generation photo and visual creation applications on vibrant 8K monitors.
The Radeon VII features 60 compute units, 3,840 stream processors and clocks up to 1,750 MHz drive high-performance gaming and hyper-realistic images. It comes with Radeon FreeSync which offers adaptive sync gaming display and supports up to 550 displays as of late for smooth, stutter-free gaming. The benchmark leaks were not really that surprising, but the rumors concerning the limited availability of the new 7 nm GPU immediately prompted AMD to step forward and counter any negative publicity.
We say in theory because, as we will see below, it is a half-truth that has many nuances.
If the estimation of a BOM number of $650 is true, AMD is technically losing money on every Radeon VII card it sells, which doesn't make any sense.
With the purchase of GIGBYTE Radeon VII HBM2 16G, gamers will receive the AMDs "Raise the Game Fully Loaded" bundle, which includes complimentary PC versions of the highly anticipated Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancy's The Division 2.
