AMD Radeon VII Review



Finally the newest AMD Radeon card is here and we can tell you what it brings to the party. Is it to the GPU world what the Zen was to the CPU one?

Nice to have options, but this also means we won't see any significant change in the inflated prices before Navi launch. Hopefully the supply improves.


But it seems that Vega VII is competitive in titles which make good use of async compute and otherwise it's almost a 2070 competitor, making it overall a hard card to recommend.

Based on this review, And several others, I will not be purchasing a Radeon 7, I'll either wait for high end Navi or if that disappoints aswell I'll end up quitting PC, Prices are going up and up and up and gen to gen performance is stagnating.

Well the games are stagnant also, IMO. I will see if I eat my words come the 14th (Metro Exodus) and the 20something? FC New Dawn.

If they're Tom Tit I will probably not even bother setting up my PC at my new flat for a while.

But aye, a 1080Ti will do any one tbh.

Edit. Apologies, where are my manners? thank you kindly Mr Guv for the review. It's pretty much everything Lisa Su said it would be so no false expectations or smoke and mirrors like last time. I am glad she handled the launch tbh. It really cut out on the bullshine.

Great review, Thanks Tom. Look forward to seeing how the AIB's present these, hopefully we see some lower temps, higher oc's and a little less noise.

Always a team effort here


Agreed on the Lisa Su and the way the launch was handled tbh.

Thanks guv and the team for a good in sight into the card performance and AMD's launch was on the money or there about.
As for price drop i don't see that coming and if it dose will only be slight as AMD have used some nicer components on there board coupled with 16gb of hbm2 which all comes at a cost

Yeah very true the VRM components are twice the price of Nvidia's and twice as good

Do you know why the performance is worse than RXVega64 in Battlefield 1? Is that from patches or something?

Edit: Love the new battlestation though
Edit2: I've seen some other benches showing the Radeon7 outperforming the 2080 too or 35% better than Vega64 I think something external might have affected that test

Bloody nice work AMD! We all know AMD cards mature well over time (290X) I can easy see the R7 chasing 2080Tis down in no time at all.
