In early February of this year, AMD releasedThe world's first 7nm technology game graphics card Radeon VII,Based on the improved Vega 20 core and the first 16GB HBM2 memory, the performance is significantly higher than the Vega 64, while the RTX 2080 is basically flat. Although not top-notch, at least AMD has new capital in the high-end market.
However, foreign media recently confirmed thatRadeon VII has been pushed into the delisting phase by AMD last month, no longer producing any new cards, and the remaining inventory will be completely withdrawn from the historical arena after the sale.
In this way, such a groundbreaking new card only lived for four months, and the latest RX 5700 XT performance is only slightly better than the RTX 2070, which is equivalent to AMD has temporarily abandoned the high-end graphics card dispute.
Radeon VII is not so unexpected. On the one hand, although there is a 7nm process and 16GB HBM2 memory,Its performance and power consumption are not satisfactory, and it lacks sufficient competitiveness.
On the other hand, the new core of the new process increases the memory, making itThe cost is too high, and no profit can be earned.Even once there was news that the 7nm Vega core would not be a game card and only a professional card.
In addition, Radeon VII did not have any public card in its short life, and it is also an alternative in the history of video cards.
of course,7nm Vega is not a failure, Google Cloud Game Service uses it, Apple's latest Mac Pro is also it and optional dual core, these can make more money than the game card.
