AMD is just a week away from the release of its Radeon VII graphics card which will be the world's first 7nm gaming GPU and will rock an incredible 16GB of HBM2 with over 1TB/sec of memory bandwidth. Well, ASRock couldn't wait for the release and detailed the entire of its upcoming Phantom Gaming X Radeon VII graphics card on its website.

ASRock details that its new Phantom Gaming X Radeon VII will have its Vega 20 GPU clocked at 1400MHz base and 1750MHz boost, all on the 7nm GPU node. The 16GB of HBM2 memory is on a wider 4096-bit memory bus that results in an absolutely huge 1TB/sec of memory bandwidth, destroying every single GeForce GTX and GeForce RTX graphics card on the planet in memory bandwidth alone.

In the post on its website, ASRock says the new Radeon VII is ready for the current world of high frame rate UltraWide, 1440p, and 4K monitors by saying that the "Radeon VII GPU is in a class of its own".

Another area where AMD will be dominating with its Radeon VII will be with content creators chewing through the 16GB of HBM2 at up to 1TB/sec, which will deliver Quadro- and Radeon Pro-like performance to the gaming side of the market, at least price wise. 8K monitor owners (like myself) will enjoy the 16GB framebuffer, as I'm even seeing that 11GB of super-fast GDDR6 simply isn't enough for some games at the huge native resolution of 7680 x 4320. 16GB of HBM2 at 1TB/sec is going to be glorious to test in games like Shadow of War and Battlefield V.

AMD's new Radeon VII graphics card launches on February 7 for $699.
