It is very hard to know which graphics card to buy anymore. Every single year there can be as many as 6-7 new cards come out. This can be hard to keep up with, especially as an average consumer who doesn’t know much about these kinds of things. One thing is for sure though, the Radeon VII graphics card is a steal for someone around the $700 budget. 

What makes this card so great? This card almost preformed as well as the Nvidia RTX 2080 and is over $100 less. The Radeon VII is also very good for future proofing, this card will run any game that you throw at it like nothing so you might not even need to replace it for another 5 years.

Now lets look at these specifications

  • Clock Speed- 1750 MHz
  • Memory Speed- 1000 MHz
  • Memory Size- 16 GB 
  • Interface- 4096 Bit
  • Stream Cores- 3840
  • Direct X 12 and open GL 4.5
  • 7680 x 4320
  • 3 Fans
  • 3 Display Ports
  • 1 HDMI 2.0
  • PCIe x16 3.0
  • Supports Crossfire
  • 2 x 8 Pin Power Connectors
  • Max. Memory Bandwidth-1024 GB/s
  • 2 Slot Card

When we get down to it, is this card worth it? My answer would be yes! This card will perform well in all that you throw at it at a decent price. Most cards with this price range will not reach the level of performance that this card will. This card would be a fantastic buy for anyone in this budget and cannot go higher for a 2080 or 2080 TI.

If you are interested in buying it it will cost $699.99 and can buy it here.

Also there are several reviews to say so as well.  


“Good temps
quieter than some say it is (or mine at least)
16gb HBM2 (although games may never use it)
Clocks great so far (only had it a day so didn’t do no extensive testing)”
