AMD's 3rd-gen Ryzen desktop CPUs are coming in mid

AMD Radeon VII front

Aside from having the jump on 7nm for desktops, AMD CEO, Lisa Su, also announced that 3rd Gen Ryzen processors will be the first in the world to support PCIe 4.0. Damn, this AMD Radeon VII is just layers upon layers of clever.

Celebrating the 50-year milestone AMD is to hit on May 1 this year, Dr. Su spent a little time in outlining how iterative, smart advances in architecture are likely to play a larger part in enhancing future performance than automatic gains from moving to ever-smaller processes, which have slowed down as manufacturing challenges and associated research and implementation costs have escalated. 60 compute units, 16GB of HBM2 memory. Alas, the Radeon VII is still based on AMD's Vega architecture, but this second gen Vega card still looks as though it will deliver a colossal amount of power to rival Nvidia's RTX 2080 card.

AMD has officially announced its next-generation high performance gaming graphics card, the AMD Radeon VII. Radeon VII.5? Radeon VII+?

Radeon VII is set to launch on February 7 starting at $700.

The Radeon VII will serve as a more direct competitor to Nvidia's RTX 2080 model and will retail for the same price of $699. Interestingly the RX Vega 64 houses, you guessed it, 64 CUs, which means the new Radeon VII actually has fewer GCN cores inside it.

While the Radeon VII GPU is primarily marketed as a gaming GPU, it also targets content creators, offering up to ~30% more performance in Blender / Adobe Premier and up to 62% improved compute power for the OpenCL platform. There's a chance that across the board of DX11 and the dwindling number of DX12 games that the Radeon VII might start to lag behind a touch.

It's impressive to see Ryzen hanging with (and slightly surpassing) Intel's flagship desktop consumer chip. Of course, I'll have to wait until the game comes out to see how the RTX 2080 fares by comparison.

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.
