MSI AMD Radeon VII Launch Day Price Revealed

Announced at CES 2019, AMD Radeon VII stole the show with the level of performance the GPU offers. Now, MSI has revealed the launch day price for its AMD Radeon VII which will become available today.

According to MSI, the AMD Radeon VII will be available for $1149 AU which is around $820 USD. MSI AMD Radeon VII is a high-end card and that is why AMD is asking for a premium price.

According to AMD, The Radeon VII “is the highest-performance gaming graphics card we have ever created”. The GPU offers 29% better gaming performance compared to the Radeon RX Vega 64.

Apparently, Radeon VII is the only GPU from AMD as macOS has hinted at upcoming Navi GPUs.

The macOS has references to the upcoming AMD Navi GPU. The operating system referenced Navi 16, 12, 10 and 9. These seem to be different variants of the Navi GPU.

Both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 use AMD chips to render incredible games and same goes for their upgraded versions. While next-gen consoles are yet to be announced but, Xbox Scarlett will be using the AMD APU.

Not only Xbox Scarlett, reportedly PlayStation 5 features an 8-core Ryzen CPU and is a solid 4K/60 FPS console. Furthermore, the report suggests that developers already have access to PlayStation 5 dev kits.

AMD is also in the business to developing CPUs and the company is yet to announce its 7nm Ryzen 3000 lineup which recently leaked.

These desktop CPUs were expected to be announced at CES 2019. Instead, AMD revealed its Ryzen 3000 Mobile CPUs, Athlon Mobile, and A-Series Mobile 2019 lineup.

However, these Ryzen 3000 mobile CPUs are based on the 12nm process node and include AMD Ryzen 7 3750H, AMD Ryzen 7 3700U, AMD Ryzen 5 3550H and more.
