Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. posted a cinematic teaser on their official Twitter account with the caption, "The rebellion has evolved. A new architecture is coming."

If you click the ve.ga link, you are then sent to countdown to the Vega Architecture Preview which will end on Eastern time January 5, Thursday at 9 AM, just in time for Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2017.
The video teaser called 'After the Uprising' continues the story of the Radeon Rebellion which started with the RX 400 series cards with Vega. The Vega Architecture refers to one of two anticipated products set to be launched by AMD this 2017. The other one being the AMD CPU Ryzen which features 8 cores and 16-thread processing at 3.4 Ghz plus a cache of 200 MB.
AMD's announcement came very shortly after Nvidia's announcement to unveil big new stuff at CES 2017. Everyone is betting on enthusiast grade GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card announcement which is supposed to be a step up of the already high-end GeForce GTX 1080.
Along with AMD's Polaris 12 GPU, Vega 10 is already certified by the South Korean National Radio Research Agency (RRA). In the Tech Summit 2016, we also saw how the Vega 10-based graphics card with 8GB of HBM2 technology ran DOOM at 4k Ultra settings and even going beyond 60 fps.
