Honestly we're not sure why the overwhelming interest, but we've been getting a surprisingly large number of requests for a Radeon VII re-test over the past few weeks, and we couldn't refuse. In what may be the last GPU shootout we put together before Navi arrives, today we have a 38 game benchmark covering 1440p and 4K resolutions.
Today we're looking at a few different hardware configurations to see if certain matchups work better than others. We're testing some popular games using the Ryzen 7 2700X and Core i7-8700K processors, pairing each with the Radeon VII, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and RTX 2080, as all three GPUs provide a similar level of performance.
The Radeon VII is AMD's latest GPU offering aimed at gamers. CEO Lisa Su has stated that the Radeon VII performs competitively with Nvidia's RTX 2080 and as such will go for the same $700. It's believed AMD's not turning a profit on these things, even at this price. But is it any good?
