Average Bench: 142% (10th of 608)

Based on 145 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]

Oddly marketed card, should only make sense for prosumers.

amd could have cut the price down to like 550 and it would be fine

Not the greatest value, but not much (if any) worse than the competition. If you're looking for a high-end gaming card and want to avoid Nvidia, this is your best option. The latest driver release seems to have fixed many of the issues being reported early on. Additionally, with 16GB of HBM2 VRAM, 1TB/s memory bandwidth, and far more raw compute power than anything Nvidia offers, this may not be a bad option for content creators using certain applications. Plus, if games start taking advantage of all that raw compute power, like we see with the extremely well-optimized Strange Brigade, the Radeon VII may prove to be a real powerhouse GPU for gaming.

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.

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.
