So the Radeon VII is discontinued already......

Recommended Posts

no, it means no one wants it.

Just becuase its discontinued, doesn't mean people want it.

Not much of a market for rare cards like a 390X2, even though that sold wayy less than a Radeon 7

yeah and you can still buy it, they made like 5000


Beta!  X570 VRM + Features list (PM me if you want to help) 

 

Will prob be making an X570 "tier" list when that is completed.

Some Custom Loop Questions, please help answer them.

I mean obviously.. Radeon VII was a filler and it sucked, they were just trying to get rid of MI50 stock, there was no custom cards even, all the signs that it wouldn't last

Make sense since 5700 XT perform similar to Radeon VII in gaming performance and doesn't cost an arm and leg to produce.

Also was reducing sales of their Pro range graphics cards because it was better than all of them and way way cheaper. On Linux is can also use the Pro drivers so I think it probably was costing them a lot of money in Pro sales. Navi is almost as good at gaming so made sense to end sales.

That's interesting. I admittedly don't really know dick about graphics cards. I was about to spend $1500 on one of their pro cards and then went with the Radeon VII when it came out.

 

Does that mean....... I chose wisely?

Yes. Unless you need a feature which is only available as part of the Pro drivers (that are not available on the Rad VII).

But if I were to use Linux, I'd be able to use the pro drivers if I wanted to?

Not exactly. On Linux there is no normal consumer driver and a "pro" driver. There's a pro driver that can be installed for 3d work and compute (but is worse than built in drivers for gaming) then there is another driver for machine learning and running CUDA compatibility (called ROCm). Both of these drivers support Radeon VII. I think the MI50/MI60 have some extra features for machine learning but otherwise there are no driver restrictions on Linux.
