Average Bench: 110% (16th of 621)

Based on 3,597 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 66AF Model: AMD Radeon VII

The widely anticipated (albeit currently not widely available) prosumer AMD Radeon VII is finally available. It features a next generation Vega 20 GPU which is based on a 7nm manufacturing process, compared to 14nm in the first generation flagship: the RX Vega 64. The Radeon VII has a massive 16GB of expensive high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) which offers a decent degree of future proofing and also makes it a good choice for memory hungry applications, however most current games do not require more than the 8GB that comes with both NVIDIA's RTX 2080 and AMD’s RX Vega 64. The Radeon VII has fewer cores than the RX Vega 64 (3840 vs 4096) but clock speeds have been boosted up to 1800 MHz compared to 1546 MHz in the RX Vega 64, the net result is 13.8 TFLOPS single precision computations (versus 13.4 TFLOPS for the RX Vega 64). On the negative side, the Radeon VII is designed with three cooling fans which can get noisy and early software drivers are reported to be buggy. Whilst there is a modest 16% performance advantage over the RX Vega 64, initial benchmarks indicate that the Radeon VII has an effective speed which is 6% short of the similarly priced RTX 2080.  [Feb '19 GPUPro]

With 16GB of VRAM, this GPU is the best for 4K editing or rendering while being capable of gaming at 4K. Higher power consumption than the competing Nvidia RTX 2080 though.

Terrible price. Currently, it may offer the second or third best performance for a consumer-grade GPU (depending on who you ask), but AMD and/or its AIB partners (even though they're all reference cards) will make you pay dearly for it. In terms of value, it is atrocious, even factoring in its excellent performance. Had this card been priced at around $500 (USD) like the cards it is ultimately meant to replace (GTX 1080, Vega 64 or even Fury X), it would still be a poor value, but it would be far more compelling than it is at current prices.

For Prosumer use, a good value card. But AMD positioned this as their high end Gaming card for all marketing purposes which was a mistake. Poor value for Gaming, terrible launch drivers & stocks.... Overclocking is shocking and AMD touts this as a 1080 Ti worthy performer, but it was only a year late and with terrible efficiency in comparison.

Being more of the sub-700 USD productivity/compute beast compared to gaming beast. With 16GB of HBM2 VRAM and 3840 compute units plus 1 TB/s of bandwith and 13.44 TFLOPS of FP32, this GPU may power your next productivity, computing and mining rig better than before! I advise against buying this GPU thanks to the comparatively high power consumption, heat generation plus similar gaming performance to the recent AMD RX 5700 XT make it a no-go today for most users unless if you need computing power that's very big and are into heavy computing, productivity or wants to mine cryptocurrency.

Radeon VII finally brings crucial competition to Nvidia's doorstep. It doesn't crush the RTX 2080, but as with Ryzen, it doesn't need to. Consumers now have a choice as to which GPU they should buy, especially if the need a more workstation-focused card.

Review  www.youtube.com/...

Linus' review of Radeon VII. Benchmarks in the video show that Radeon VII trades blows with the RTX 2080 in gaming, but kills almost everything when it comes to workstation use.

At the time of purchase, the Radeon VII was about $150 cheaper than RTX 2080 cards with decent cooling. Stock performance for 1440p 100+ Hz is fantastic. It's a loud GPU but I wear headphones so I seldom notice its sound.

Its a video render dream fro the price with the 16gbs if hbm2 mem but the gaming is lacking so its better for people who have more to do then just gaming.
