An image of an AMD Radeon VII graphics card being tested has been uploaded to TweakTown’s Twitter account. Clearly the photo is being used as a teaser for the site’s upcoming benchmarks for the much-anticipated GPU from the red team. LegitReviews has also announced that tests are underway on the world’s first 7nm gaming graphics card.

The official release day for the AMD Radeon VII is rapidly closing in: February 7. Some lucky tech journalists have managed to get their hands on the graphics card and have started running their tests. According to Wccftech, the unboxing of the GPU is currently under embargo, but the image posted on Twitter by TweakTown shows an already unboxed Radeon VII in a test bench – so no actual “unboxing” is shown (see below for the picture).

We already reported on rumored benchmark scores for the Radeon VII that appeared on 3DMark recently. Those results were pretty convincing and AMD’s effort could mount a serious challenge against Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 20 series. It will be very interesting to see if the current tests on the 7nm gaming GPU end up corresponding with the leaked scores we have already seen.

The AMD Radeon VII will have an MSRP of US$699. Some of the technical specifications include 3840 stream processors, 60 compute units, 16 GB memory, 1 TB/s memory bandwidth, and the inclusion of AMD’s FreeSync2 HDR technology. Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang may find it “underwhelming” with “lousy” performance, but in reality it appears the red team could have a real winner on its hands with this latest graphics card.
