AMD Unveils Third-Gen Ryzen CPUs, Available Mid

AMD Radeon VII on stage

Whether or not the Radeon VII can fight back against Nvidia's dominance in the graphics card space remains to be seen, but the new GPU definitely seems to be impressive from what was shown on stage today. The company's new Radeon VII GPU is its second generation Vega Graphics core, with features like Async Compute, Rapid Packed Math and Shader Intrinsics.

It's not clear if we'll see any downstream Radeon VII products.

Extreme gaming performance: The AMD Radeon VII graphics card delivers exceptional performance in DirectX 12- and Vulkan-based games, including up to 35 percent higher performance in Battlefield V, and up to 42 percent higher performance in Strange Brigade, compared to the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics card.

To this end, Dr. Su recapped on the significant strides made by the consumer Ryzen and server-focussed Epyc processors, built on an all-new architecture and connectivity fabric created to scale easily to 32 cores and 64 cores, respectively, bringing more compute per socket to both ecosystems than ever before.

Using a 7nm manufacturing process (much like the Radeon 7) and based on the company's new "Zen 2" x86 core architecture that they use for their server-grade Epyc processors, AMD said their 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs will "absolutely set the bar on performance, technology and power efficiency".

The Radeon VII will go on sale for $699 on February 7. The VII slots in above the RX Vega 64 and averages about 29 percent faster, putting it within spitting distance of Nvidia's RTX 2080.

But thanks to America's Got Talent: The Champions , we got to see her do her thing and prove, once again, why she's here to stay. Susan Boyle reprised her hit cover of the Rolling Stones' Wild Horses during an emotional appearance on America's Got Talent .

AMD will also offer customers who buy an eligible AMD Radeon VII video card or a Radeon VII-powered computer the Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancy's The Division 2 games, as part of its "Raise the Game Fully Loaded" bundle. The Vega 10 is built on GlobalFoundries' 14nm process; the Vega 20 is built on TSMC's 7nm process.

Replacing the Radeon Vega 64 at the very top of AMD's gaming GPU stack, the Radeon VII will offer twice the memory of its predecessor with a whopping 16GB of HBM2 (High Bandwidth Memory 2).

Just in case you'd forgotten what AMD's Dr Lisa Su was talking about for a second...

After the Radeon VII demo at its CES 2019 keynote, AMD CEO Lisa Su talked a bit more about gaming and then moved straight into the Zen 2 reveal.

3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs actually have two separate dies to help it achieve super fast speeds.
