Sapphire Launches its Radeon VII – Also Direct on AMD’s Website

If you order it direct from AMD’s website … you’ll get a boosted 1800 MHz version!

Sapphire is among the first AMD add-in-board (AIB) partners to launch a Radeon VII graphics card. The card sticks to AMD reference board design, which the company unveiled at its CES 2019 keynote. Interestingly, its GPU engine boost frequency is set at 1750 MHz, which is less than the 1800 MHz boost frequency figure that was mentioned by the company earlier. Could it be that AMD is reserving 1800 MHz for cards directly sold on AMD.com?

The memory frequency is unchanged at 1000 MHz, which works out to an HBM2 memory bandwidth of 1 TB/s. Sapphire’s box for this card lists out key specifications upfront, and also features the Vega II logo. It’s likely that the card will be sold at the baseline price of $699, given that there are no other variants of this card, not even custom-design.
