How well can the Radeon VII 16GB run games
AMD Radeon VII 16GB
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The Radeon VII 16GB will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the Radeon VII 16GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the Radeon VII 16GB get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. This graphics hardware can run 994 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon VII 16GB is running Days Gone and delivering strong performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 90 frames per second. Comparing this to Resident Evil 8 which is getting reasonable results, where it averages 57 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Battlefield 2042, which is predicted to run at 52 frames per second.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the Radeon VII 16GB ran Days Gone to a good performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 180 FPS, Medium: 142 FPS, High: 96 FPS and Ultra: 68 FPS. Another game tested was Resident Evil 8, L: 115FPS, M: 90FPS, H: 61FPS, U: 43FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Battlefield 2042, wih estimates revealing L: 104FPS, M: 82FPS, H: 55FPS, U: 39FPS at 1440p. 1440p gaming on the Radeon VII 16GB is capable of delivering a solid gaming experience across larger screen sized monitors. We expect to see High and Ultra graphics settings across most games at 1440p with this GPU.

How many years will the Radeon VII 16GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon VII 16GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon VII 16GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the Radeon VII 16GB.

Radeon VII 16GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview The AMD Radeon VII 16GB HBM2 is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the fifth (5.1) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.
Architecture Vega 20 XT GPU offers support for second-gen HBM2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. The Vega 20 XT is the first ever 7nm gaming GPU and is the Full Variant of the GPU with 60 Compute Units activated, offering 3840 Shader Processing Units, 240 TMUs and 128 ROPs.
GPU The Central Unit is clocked at 1400MHz with a boost clock speed of 1750MHz.
Memory: Speed The GPU is equipped with 16GB of stacked HBM2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit memory interface, offering total memory bandwidth of 967.7 GB/s. HBM2 memory is clocked at 1000MHz base clock, or 2000 MHz effective speed.
Memory: Frame Buffer The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 16GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory but it makes the Radeon VII a great GPU for memory-intensive programs. The GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 16GB HBM2 framebuffer is enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.
Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 295W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors. Performance The Radeon VII 16GB is in in the same region of performance as the GeForce RTX 2080, although it does lack ray-tracing support. However, the ultra-wide HBM2 memory may offer the Radeon RX Vega an advantage at higher resolutions. System Suggestions AMD Radeon VII 16GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
