While the price is relatively well established at €739. according to Cowcotland, availability is a serious problem with AMD's Radeon VII card, as there are reportedly 20 cards available in France, and 20 cards in Spain. This graphics card makes the leap from the 14 nm process seen in the Radeon RX Vega 56 and 64 to the 7 nm process, an important advance that, together with small touches at the silicon level, has allowed AMD to give an important boost to performance by maintaining a consumption that places it at nearly the same level as the Radeon RX Vega 64. The new GPU is suited for latest AAA, eSports and VR titles and is meant for demanding 3D rendering and video applications.

The Radeon VII provides seamless, high-refresh HDR gaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p and 4K and uses a 4,096-bit memory interface for high-resolution textures and life-like animation.

60 compute units, 3,840 stream processors and clocks up to 1,750 MHz drive high-performance gaming and hyper-realistic images. The Radeon VII also features support for DirectX 12 and thus offers improvements of 35 percent in Battlefield V and 42 percent in Strange Brigade in contrast to its predecessor.

No doubt, the AMD Radeon VII is a powerful graphics card, since it mounts a GPU whose architecture has reached the point of depletion and relies, however, on the leading process of 7 nm and high-performance HBM2 memory. Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR offers more than 2X better brightness and color volume compared to sRGB.

KitGuru says: If we get any more updated information on this our news team will be sure to let you know. With AMD Radeon FreeSync technology, gamers can experience smooth gameplay at every level.

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.
