Update 2: AMD Radeon VII: FireStrike & TimeSpy Benchmarks Leaked?
wccftech.com (external link) spotted once again that Twitter user TUM_APISAK (external link) has served up some leaked FireStrike- and TimeSpy benchmarks for the Radeon VII. Here are the leaked Radeon VII benchmarks:
- TimeSpy: 8.700 points
- FireStrike Ultra: 6.800 points
- FireStrike Extreme: 13.400 points
- Firestrike: 27.400 points
Depending on the driver version used, we may be able to expect even higher scores. With 3.840 Shaders and a Boost Clock of 1.800 MHz, wccftech.com estimates the Radeon VII to have a processing power of approximately 13,8 TFLOPS. The resolution of 3.840 x 2.160P (4K/UHD) would allow the 16 GB HBM2-VRAM on the Radeon VII to be utilised to the fullest.
As soon as verified Radeon VII benchmarks are available, we will update the blog. The comparisons with high-end graphics cards of competitors will likely make for some very interesting reading indeed. The Radeon VII launch looks set to take place in the first week of February.
Update 1: AMD Radeon Vega VII: First Benchmarks Leaked?
According to Computerbase.de (external link) the first Radeon Vega VII benchmarks have been published by ASUS. The performance improvement of the Radeon Vega VII compared with the Vega 64 is in the order of 29 percent. The largest performance increases occur in Fallout 76 and the Radeon Vega VII records 68,4 percent more FPS than its predecessor. With 7,5 percent more FPS in Hitman 2, this shows the smallest increase.
The tests were recorded at 4K (UHD, 3840 x 2.160P). The processor used is an Intel Core i7-7700K paired with 16 GB of 3.000 MHz RAM. Battlefield 5 on the Vega VII achieves more than 60 Frames per Second and Sid Meier's Civilization VI even manages 97,1 FPS. The Radeon Vega VII is rumoured to be available from February 7th 2019.
According to Tom's Hardware (external link) there won’t be any custom cards arriving for now, although this isn’t too bitter a pill to swallow given that the reference design of the Vega VII offers a triple-fan cooler design. This is a big departure from AMD’s traditional reference cooler on their gaming graphics cards, which has always been a radial-style design.

Original Post: New AMD GPU Coming: Radeon Vega VII in February?
AMD introduced the Radeon Vega VII at CES 2019 in Las Vegas! CEO Lisa Su presented a fascinating talk concerning the first 7 nm gaming graphics card. The Vega 20 GPU-based graphics card is rumoured to boost up to 1.800 MHz and come with 16 GB HBM2-VRAM. The Radeon Vega VII could arrive in February and offer, according to AMD, in up to 42 percent more FPS in games than the Vega 64.
The previewed reference design of the Radeon Vega VII comes with three large axial-style fans and a silver cooler shroud. This represents a break away from the traditional radial-style design for which AMD's reference cards have previously been known. The cooler of the Radeon Vega VII is two slots high and the card itself is powered by means of two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
The 16 GB HBM2-VRAM is divided into 4 stacks of 4 GB each. These are connected to the GPU using a 4.096-bit memory bus interface. The total potential throughput is twice that of the Vega 64. Moreover, the HBM2-VRAM is clocked markedly higher than its predecessors. The number of Shader Units on the Radeon Vega VII adds up to 3.840 and 60 Compute Units lower than in the case of the Vega 64 (4.096/64), while the total number of Render Output Units (ROPs) has been doubled to make a total of 128.
The Radeon Vega VII is reported to be coming towards the end of February.
The Specs of the Radeon Vega VII:
Here is an overview of the rumoured specs on the Radeon Vega VII gaming graphics card when compared directly to the Vega 64 and RX 590:
|Radeon Vega VII||Radeon Vega 64||Radeon RX 590|
|FP32 Performance||13.8 TFLOPS||12.7 TFLOPS||7.1 TFLOPS|
|GPU:||Vega 20||Vega 10||Polaris 30|
|Manufacturing Node:||7 nm||14 nm||12 nm|
