Radeon VII Sapphire 16GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The Radeon VII Sapphire 16GB 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 Sapphire 16GB is 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 Sapphire 16GB 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.
