AMD Radeon VII unboxed: the world's first 7nm gaming GPU

We've got AMD's new Radeon VII in-house and have unboxed it in all its 7nm Vega 20 and 16GB HBM2 glory

Introduction

AMD is just days away from releasing its Radeon VII graphics card but there are two embargo dates: today, and February 7 as the card is released. The content is being split into the unboxing article we have here today, and then the full juicy review later this week.

The packaging that AMD sent my Radeon VII sample isn't how a normal Radeon VII graphics card will arrive, this is special for reviewers like previous Radeon RX Vega and Ryzen Threadripper samples. I really dig it, as it gives something for reviewers and YouTubers to show you before the big reveal of the card itself, as it's something quite special for gamers, content creators, AMD, and Radeon fans.

AMD has already detailed virtually all of the details on Radeon VII, which will feature the Vega 20 GPU on the fresh 7nm node - making AMD the first to market with a 7nm gaming GPU. Vega 20 has 3840 stream processors, 16GB of super-fast HBM2 with an insane 1TB/sec of memory bandwidth (up from the 484GB/sec on the Radeon RX Vega 64).

I can't go into details about performance but I will say you will be surprised, just as I was. The new Radeon VII isn't perfect, but it's a damn good card that I'm excited to dive into with my full review on February 7. For now, let's take a look at the awesome packaging that AMD has made for Radeon VII, as it's the most amazing graphics card package I've ever received.
