Radeon 7 gives me 15-30fps more than RTX 2080 that I use in another computer. And I also like it more because of 16gb V Ram, if you are into HD Skyrim with 500+ mods you gonna use all of that at 4k :D

let me see now, the 2080 and RVII are the same price one does SLI, the other for whatever stupid ass reason doe not do crossfire. the decision is easy. They want to compete with the 2080 without crossfire, dumb dumb dumb.

I hope you guys will do a comparison between Radeon VII and Navi once Navi is released.

I don't think Navi is going to compete with the Radeon VII, certainly not from the specs we have seen thus far. Unless they've got another card as yet unannounced.

All I see is that upgrading from my 980TI is still not worth it.
Miyuden 20 days ago
@SB C If I had an 980 I probably would upgrade, but the 980 TI is still doing it on 4k. For an upgrade I don't think the fps are worth the price right now.
SB C 20 days ago
My old PC had an sli 980 but I upgraded to 2080 ti
Colin Month ago
Okay now why would you buy the Radeon selling the navi is coming out
The Radeon VII is probably faster than the 5700XT. Anyway, purely for gaming, the Radeon VII is not worth it.

I personally think that this card seriously needs water cooling to be optimal. The fans are super loud, and it runs way too hot for the stock cooler due to how big the die is.

moofree Month ago
In my experience, the VII is pretty good. On Windows, I had trouble with the automatic undervolting slash overclocking profiles in the drivers- but applied the overclocking+undervoling profile as described by this video, and have had better luck. ruvid.net/video/video-y88YFCYX2qg.html I agree with his comments about the GPU. The VII is also somewhat notable as it supports the open source drivers on Linux, and is the best single GPU supported on macOS Mojave.
survivormon Month ago
Pretty sure the new drivers fixed a lot of the problems and boost performance, but not enough of a % gain over my vega 56 to upgrade.

Imma keep my opinions for after PCI-E gen 4 releases. AMD has been prepping 7nm with PCI-E gen 4 in mind for release from the start, with HBM2 it'll likely get 1 hell of a performance boost with extra bandwidth, speed and power from the socket

I'd be interested in an update video as I'm in the process of building my first computer in almost 10 years (it has been awhile). I have an Asus X470 Prime MB with a Ryzen 7 2700x and I'm torn between the RTX 2080 vs the Radeon VII.

@Steampunk Skunk thanks! I bit the bullet and went with the Gaming trio x 2080.

Hardware unboxed just did one, the stability issues are gone but the card still costs as much as a 2080 but has 14% worse gaming performance (on average across 38 titles). Its a pity, if AMD had made this card with only 12G of memory it would be cheaper and would offer a much better price to performance ratio and would likely be a winner. At the moment the 7 is just not competitive, for the same money a 2080 is a better card.

LOL im sry to say, but ive owned AMD GPU's over the yrs and ill just say, ill never buy another AMD gpu again, bought a 2070 bout 2 months ago and ive thrown every game ive got at it at ultra to high settings and never slowed down, smooth, fast, and never hiccup not one time, GL on the AMD cards lol theirs a reason y nvidia is #1 and has been since the GeForce 256 lol

You really should revisit the VII, as usual they screwed the pooch on release but it's to be expected with AMD they nearly always do screw up GPU releases nowadays, I got a VII on release & I was very disappointed up until the new driver that landed just a week later, since then I've been extremely happy with its performance & how it matches up with my 3440x1440 monitor. One of the nicer aspects was how pre release we were told it would overclock upto 1800mhz, Upto 1800mhz. 1800mhz is it's base core clock, it's starting point, compare that to how it was under Raj Koduri, with him we were told the Vega 64 had a base clock of 1630mhz but it was struggle to get a Vega 64 to run on or beyond 1630mhz with an overclock, I know this as I had 3 different versions, the reference limited edition blower, The limited edition (3x8pin) Nitro+ and the Red Devil, It was the same with all three and it used to peeve me how underhanded & dishonest Mr Koduri had been about Vega with the consumer, Thank God he's gone, The situation with the VII has been much better, Because of what we were told we didn't over expect, in fact I under expected in regards to what the card now offers with the newer drivers.

Ultrawide Gaming With the 2080ti, Nvidia limited the overclock by a lot, but you can easely change the power limit to 130%, leading to great overclocks : www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/9sfkjh/2080_ti_bios_flash_from_115_to_130_power_palit_to/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app There are even some with 140% for reference PCBs. Just wanted to show the overclock potentiel compared to Pascal

@Christophe Groulx Hi, You're right, like with everything silicon some overclock better than others but mine seems to be one of the worse overclockers when I compare it to what others claim to be getting from their VII's. Because of how gpu boost now works overclocking Nvidia's gpu's doesn't offer what it used to, The 980ti was a great overclocker if you won the silicon lottery but since then it's gone downhill due to how good gpu boost 3.0 is at it's job & when you add in the voltage regulator Nvidia's cards are starting to all be as good as each other when it comes to achievable clocks, In comparison Vega's had a lot to offer thanks to how untweaked it comes out of the box. I've had a 1060 & a 1080 & playing around with those was boring where as I've had a lot of fun with both my Vega 64's & my VII.

Ultrawide Gaming 1. Some cards are better clockers than others.. You can’t really say it’s an universal fix. 2. You can overclock a 2080 quite a bit
Ultrawide Gaming
Ultrawide Gaming 2 months ago
@Christophe Groulx Hi, You're right raw performance isn't much better with an overclock, but it's only one part of the equation, I can push my core clock up into the 1900's & average at most 3 or maybe 4 extra frames but my own preference is to undervolt it to get a good balance between noise & performance. I can push close to 2000mhz for canned benchmarks like 3dmark but I'm a gamer so real world use ie gaming performance is what matters for me & with an undervolt I can get slightly better than out of the box performance for a much smaller audible footprint.

I am probably abit late to the party, but your words here are exactly why i wont go for an AMD Graphics card for in a while. Right now I am stuck with a first gen R9 fury, I have had it since launch, and the last couple of months are the first 3 month period where the radiator fan has not gone to 100% while idle. My former card was AMD as well, just cant remember the model (possibly HD5870) and that did not meet expectations for me eighter. I want AMD to challenge Nvidia, But they need to make sure that their cards are ready for release before releasing them, for me to consider AMD Graphics cards again.

You should revisit this GPU the initial driver software had a few issues the most recent drivers better utilize it's abilities. Hint it's very good competition for most versions of an Nvidia 2080.

They're not in the same league and/or price point, so people just complain; especially if they're AMD fanboys, so it's not worth the hassle in the end

I'm surprised how well my modded Vega 64 compared to a stock Radeon 7. All I did was put it on an EKWB custom water loop and flashed the stock "performance" BIOS to a Vega 64 LC edition BIOS from TechPowerup. 2:40 My subscore is 8157 vs 8841 from the reference Radeon 7. 2:47 Wow, I got 5219 and it's breathing down the necks of the 1080Ti and Radeon 7. 3:03 Modded Vega 64 - 6255, 2080 - 6458

So in a couple of years time, I can get full performance from my AMD card?
inflatable2 Month ago
Which is why by far most people have bought Nvidia in the last 10 years orso.. People don't want promises for the future, they want the best performance and a stable product out of the box.. They are not gonna wait for more performance and stability in the long run (1-2 years) when by that time newer and much faster videocards have already been released again..

Sometime I wonder if AMD doesn't build there cards with a scheme in mind. Like how RX 580 was essentially a Rx 480 with a bios upgrade. Sure, it's cost effective but no new performance.
Shill Crimms
Shill Crimms 2 months ago
But you can't just trust that your card will get better. The RX and Vega series did got much better because the RX was refresh and they also had a lot to explore on Vega architeture. It's kinda weird to say "buy Radeon 7, it is worse, but just for now, trust me".
