Yesterday AMD announced the Radeon VII, a new $699 high-end video card based on a 7nm Vega GPU. Asked about this new launch from his competitor, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang called the effort "underwhelming". Huang told PC World that "the performance is lousy and there's nothing new." He also blasts the card for lacking ray tracing and "barely keeping up with a 2080":
“The performance is lousy and there’s nothing new,” Huang said. “[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.”

“It’s a weird launch, maybe they thought of it this morning,” Huang quipped before laughing halfheartedly at his own dig and mentioning how he likes to riff on the competition sometimes. Still, it’s clear what Huang thinks as he again reiterated: “It’s underwhelming.”
AMD CEO Lisa Su responded to PC World with the following comment: “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."

The dissing of the competition didn't end there. Huang also criticized AMD's FreeSync, claiming NVIDIA's internal testing shows "most of the FreeSync monitors do not work." According to NVIDIA, only 12 out of 400 tested FreeSync panels offer proper support.

Last but not least, NVIDIA's boss also laughed at Intel, quipping that Intel's graphics team if basically AMD:
“Intel’s graphics team is basically AMD, right?” Huang asked. “I’m trying to figure out AMD’s graphics team.”
