AMD released their enthusiast GPU, the Radeon Vega VII yesterday after sticking to the budget segment for quite a while. The card is supposed to offer performance almost on par with NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 while costing roughly 50-60 dollars less. While not exactly the RTX-killer everyone was hoping for, it’s a start nonetheless.

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang

NVIDIA CEO, Jensen Huang was interviewed by journalists shortly after the AMD Keynote and when inquired about AMD’s new Vega VII he responded by calling the GPU, “underwhelming”. He further went on to say that:

[There’s] no ray tracing, no AI. It’s 7nm with HBM memory that barely keeps up with a 2080. And if we turn on DLSS we’ll crush it. And if we turn on ray tracing we’ll crush it.

Jensen Huang, NVIDIA CEO

Although the card is yet to hit shelves enthusiasts are a bit miffed with the card’s pricing, considering that it performs on par with the RTX 2080 without offering raytracing or DLSS and still is a mere $50 less.

A while after this Dr. Lisa Su, the AMD CEO was asked to comment on Huang’s remarks and all she had to say was:

What I would say is that we’re very excited about Radeon VII, and I would probably suggest that he hasn’t seen it yet.
