In Blender and DaVinci Resolve 15, AMD promises a 27-percent performance jump, and then a 62 percent jump in GPU compute workloads based on OpenCL scoring. the latest chip will provide 25% overall jump in performance compared to RX Vega 64. but if we access performance per app basis then the performance will be 27% better on Blender.
You can buy the AMD Radeon VII from February 7 onwards for prices starting at $699. There will be a limited time game bundle aptly named “Raise the Game Fully Loaded” available with the purchase which will include the PC versions of Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
