PowerColor Also Unveils its Reference Radeon VII

Amidst breaking news about PowerColor designing what could be the first custom-design Radeon VII graphics card, the company also unveiled its reference-design Radeon VII card, the AXVII 16GBHBM2-3DH. This card sticks to AMD's reference design clock speeds of up to 1750 MHz boost, and up to 1800 MHz "peak" clock speeds, with the memory ticking at 1000 MHz. It implements the slick, solid-aluminium triple-fan stock cooling solution AMD designed for this card. Drawing power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, the card puts out three DisplayPort 1.4 and an HDMI 2.0b. Based on the 7 nm "Vega 20" silicon, the Radeon VII packs 3,840 stream processors, 240 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 4096-bit wide HBM2 memory interface, holding 16 GB of memory. It's likely that PowerColor will sell this card close to AMD's MSRP for this card, USD $699.

I'm unsure why any company unveils, for PR, a card which is fundamentally identical to reference. There's nothing to unveil.

Agreed. They need to differenciate themselves from the competition, not show they can do the exact same thing.

Maybe they just give the heads-up for the new products they are going to release.

Well it's a new product line from tul like it is for sapphire and asrock. It's a reference design like initial batches of 2060s-2080s. Who knows maybe we will see boards from Sapphire, HIS, Powercolor,XFX, AsRock, Asus, Visiontek that are AIB designs
