High Frame Rate 1440p + Smooth 4K Gaming

AMD really didn't have the best time with Vega its first iteration with the Radeon RX Vega 64 falling far from its hype and expectations, but that's not the case the second time around.

The new 7nm node and the additional wiggle room AMD has to play with in regards to GPU clocks and the faster HBM2 memory, we're looking at awesome performance for high frame rate 1440p 144/165Hz displays, 3440x1440 UltraWide monitors with 100-144Hz, and 4K 60Hz gaming monitors. This is a return to form for AMD and I love it. It doesn't best the RTX 2080 T i, but that's not what the Radeon VII represents.

If you're like me as a gamer and enthusiast, then you're a speed freak. I can't play games on anything less than a 100-120Hz display, so seeing 100/200/300FPS in charts from AMD, even in a game like Rainbow Six Siege, is another good thing to see. No more lukewarm Vega 64 performance, this is Vega 64 and some. Impressive stuff, AMD.

AMD is splitting gamers up properly into its performance gamers (which I believe should be Radeon RX 570, RX 580, and the 'new' RX 590 and not just the RX 590) and enthusiast gamers and creators, another nod towards Radeon VII being a creators-focused beast. Still, Radeon VII offers FreeSync 2 HDR support, 1440p and 100FPS+ in most games across AMD's own averages. Our benchmarks show similar results.

This is the type of gaming experience you'll only get on the Radeon VII, and maybe Vega 64 if you dropped some of the details. AMD says it perfectly 'premium gaming displays REQUIRE MORE PERFORMANCE".
