ofc , It's just Radeon Instinct MI50 in gaming card, AMD had worked on their linux driver to improve MI50's perf in Linux.
one owner mentioned he reduced volt from 1150 to 1050 and fan rpm dropped to 1900 from 2800.

Funny you say I need a reality check, when it is you who is about to get one.

My opinion stems from experience - I've been using Radeons since the beginning of the name. They've always been tops for all-around work in my rigs. They work well clocked low, clocked high, with or without software accompanying the drivers, unlike nV. Even AMD's HD-series onboard will accelerate CAD nicely. I don't just game, which is what the loudest of whiners about this card seem to do. AMD's GPUs have consistently proven to me to be superior for all-around work. If I wanted a GPU just for gaming I'd buy a console, and nice, they have Radeons, too.

I've had more than enough bad experiences with nV as a company during my years in Silicon Valley, with their GPUs at times when I've tried using them for my diverse workload, and with their software when it attempts to dictate to me what hardware I should have in my PC via BSOD.

You've made clear your pro-nV leanings in many threads. That's fine. Maybe you'll be original one day.
no one is interested in your background story,stick to the point of the discussion.
though there ain't much to dicuss here,numbers say it all.that's why there's people stirring up drama.

We all know AMD needs a complete GPU Re-Design. Until this happens, this is what they can offer. Though I do believe the price is at least $150 too high, despite the 3 x AAA Games included.
And the games aren't even added on most cases. Only a few shops here and there support this AMD bonus. None in my country :(

Hopefully the 7nm Navi will be enough to further accelerate Radeon GPU adoption. I heard that Navi may be a new design? Or highly enhanced/modified and be offered in both GDDR6 and HBM2.
You heard it right, navi will be a very efficient gpu like polaris is on 14nm. 2 to 4 x more performance than rx 480 and to be sold around $200 - $400 is a win to me.

Funny how all these people who are really adamant to point out how this card is useless/irrelevant/shit and call out the "red team" for defending it also keep coming back to argue about the most bizarre things.

Oxymoron much ?

Because it literally is MI50 card rebranded as Radeon VII. AMD failed so hard on AI so they are trying to sell their stock as gaming gpu. I've applied for their AI platform 3 years ago and haven't heard from ever since. No one got accepted to their platform because there is no platform. amd is a troll.

Of course it is good in computation. It's a rebranded compute accelerator with video output added.
Do you really want to be that person who buys a card *for gaming* because it's good at running simulations? :)

Also the other characteristics (power consumption, noise) are very datacenter-ish, not PC-friendly.
If I want freesync works flawless I won't get NV card.Bad idea.Nvidia needs much more work to ensure that Freesync works without any issue , but I'm sure they never bother it due to their strategy
On the other hand: you're fine with the fact that this Radeon needs tweaking, undervolting etc just to make it slightly competitive (or rather: less atrocious).
Nvidia cards are basically plug&play.

if your story is true then i would be delightful to get one or two of radeon vii. i need them badly and hey look the price is cheap. lol

thanks for your information.

@W1zzard

Thanks for the write-up :)

Firstly, I am not insinuating anything here, but do you have any reason for being able to overclock the card when nobody else could? der8uaer couldn't get a performance increase, Gamers Nexus apparently couldn't get an increase (I'm going by Roman's video here, I don't watch GN), and the same goes for Toms Hardware and Guru3D. From the reviews I've seen, you're the only one to successfully overclock the card. Do you have any idea why?

Just in case you forgot it is the GPU-Z creator you are talking about here:W1zzard. His programming skills out match all those you mentioned above COMBINED.


In the age of “tech-tubers” people tend to forget the existence of real tech reviewers.

Nothing against tech-tubers, they are non-professional. They make videos for entertainment, review is just add-on value

@W1zzard W1z - New one out that supports it?

I remember a review said you were on vacation (how dare you!) and none of the apps worked.
Back from holiday, still working on it

With NSA's RSA reverse engineering tool, I'm sure you can rewrite the firmware to use them as compute cards. There is no stock in my country, when they arrive, I'm going to get one just to verify my models on ROCm & OpenCL.

While I don't care what brand I buy (I buy whatever has the best price/performance/power consumption), if you buy a gaming card either from AMD or NVIDIA they are all crap for any serious CAD work and won't accelerate anything, for that you need FirePro or Quadro. With NVIDIA at least you can use CUDA even on gaming cards.

Really is a compute card rather than a game card. Swing & a miss in the consumer space, that build quality is really too high for consumer use and driving up price.
Yeah, much better to use the Nvidia Space Invaders build quality instead. :D

TPU's performance summary is based on significantly more games and it's definitely more accurate because of this.
yeah its 5% better overall on average but a 1080ti is over £1k new in the uk, the r vii is around £680...
You should focus on the 2080 which is about the same price and 14% better currently. (under specified test workloads. its slower by the same amount in others)

i don't doubt driver support will improve the r vii performance numbers, but as it stands its under performing and you cant blame any one other than amd if it turns out to be 100% the drivers fault.
