Closing out its keynote at CES 2019, AMD has shown off a pre-production 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen CPU using the Zen 2 x86 architecture and built on 7nm, demonstrating its ability to outperform the Intel Core i9-9900K while using roughly 30 percent less power. Su promised that Radeon 7 would offer 25% more performance at the same power consumption as the first generation Vega GPUs.

As expected, AMD today announced its latest high-end graphics card for gamers built using 7-nanometer process technology.

Usually, the biggest announcements at CES are over with by the end of the first day, but during its second-day keynote AMD CEO Lisa Su announced a new GPU, the AMD Radeon VII.

Su also showed the CPU itself, and discussed how it was different from any other AMD chips you may have seen. In addition, AMD Radeon FreeSync2 HDR technology offers more than 2X better brightness and color volume compared to sRGB.

Patrick Moorhead, principal Moor Insights & Strategy, said the Radeon VII will perform best in the consumer creative space given its high-bandwidth memory, but it will also perform well in gaming.

It won't just be games where the Radeon VII shines, mind. AMD claims 4x floating-point performance and 2x performance per socket compared to current generation Intel Xeon 8180 CPUs.

"For gamers, AMD Radeon VII enables maximum settings for extreme framerates at the highest resolutions", the company says. The Radeon VII also supports HDR gaming at 1080p, ultrawide 1440p and 4K, and 8K monitors.

As for when you'll be able to get one yourself, there's actually not long to wait. In all honesty it makes it sound like the Radeon VII was a huge surprise for Nvidia and that it hadn't seen and RTX 2080-level competition coming from AMD. The AMD Radeon VII graphics card will be available from February 7, 2019 for $699 Dollars. For a limited time, Radeon VII will come bundled with Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5, and Tom Clancy's The Division 2.
