Nvidia CEO says AMD Radeon VII "performance is lousy" - Graphics

  • AMD shares more Radeon VII details

TSMC's 7nm production is likely to be quite expensive in the case of a 331 mm silicon chip, as will the four HBM2 RAM stacks on the 4096-bit memory interface.

Huang also went on to state that the RTX 2080 is sold by every add-in card vendor, while the Vega VII was still an unknown. Speaking with press this week at CES, Huang said, "The performance is lousy and there's nothing new".

"FreeSync was never proven to work". Whether frame rates will turn this into a single or a triple, we'll have to see in testing. Under the hood, it's still the same Vega architecture that led to the disappointing reception of RX Vega 64 and Vega 56. "And if we turn on ray tracing we'll crush it", he added.

While AMD gave us a few hand-picked benchmarks that showed how the Radeon VII performs against the Radeon RX Vega 64 and the GeForce RTX 2080 when it first announced the card earlier this week, benchmark figures for roughly two dozen games were hidden in plain sight. However, according to AMD CEO Lisa Su, it the company is now in "deep development" on DirectX Ray Tracing support for future Radeon graphics cards. What do you expect us to see?


Huang stated that they tested FreeSync monitors extensively and "unsurprisingly majority don't work". He said that of the "hundreds" of FreeSync monitors tested for G-Sync compatibility, only 12 activated it automatically.

At the launch of the Radeon VII, AMD said it was the most high-performance GPU it has launched to date. AMD doesn't mention the motherboard or storage drive, but does say the games were benched at 4K at max settings.

While the Radeon VII will be AMD's most potent gaming card when it is released on February 7at a price of $699, its performance will be comparable to that of a GeForce RTX 2080.

Papermaster confirmed AMD isn't shifting away from the mid-range market since its debut of the higher-end Radeon VII unveiled during CES 2019, with Papermaster saying: "We are really excited to start on the high-end with our 7nm Radeon VII and you will see the announcements over the course of the year as we refresh across our Radeon program". About 25 per cent improved performance on average. For comparison, Nvidia's RTX 2060 sports a starting price of $346.
