AMD Releases Additional Benchmarks for their Radeon VII GPU

During their CES 2019 keynote, AMD officially announced the newest graphics card, the Radeon VII (Seven), the world’s first 7nm gaming graphics card. 

At CES AMD released a minimal amount of performance data for their Radeon VII, giving us very little to go on aside from the graphics card’s stream processor count, which is lower than the RX Vega 64, and the CPU’s memory bandwidth, with is almost two times greater than the RX Vega 64. 

With the performance numbers provided, AMD’s Radeon VII was seen to offer performance levels that were similar to Nvidia’s RTX 2080 graphics card, but now we have a little more data to go on. 

AMD has provided us with some benchmarking numbers which compare 25 recently released games, with extreme cases like Fallout 76 providing a staggering 68.35% performance boost over the RX Vega 64. On average, the Radeon VII offers a 29% performance boost over the RX Vega 64. 

To achieve the results below, AMD benchmarked each of these games three times for each graphics card while running each game at the same settings and on the same Radeon graphics driver. AMD stated that they used 4K Ultra settings for Battlefield V and Strange Brigade. It is likely that equivalent settings are used for the other games.

AMD’s Radeon VII graphics card will release on February 7th for $699, launching with free copies of The Division 2, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5. The Radeon VII meets The Division 2’s PC system requirements for 4K 60FPS (more info here).
