AMD Radeon RX Vega Update: Graphics Cards Won't Launch Until August
We've already heard lots of juicy news from Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. or AMD concerning the monster Ryzen processors, as well as the gaming laptops at Computex. The only thing that makes many people disappointed is the limited information the American multinational semiconductor company is releasing about its launch date. Today, a new report suggests that AMD’s Radeon RX Vega graphics cards will not launch until August.
As reported by TechRadar, AMD claimed that the most awaited Radeon RX Vega GPUs are designed to be mainstream PCs and won’t be released until SIGGRAPH 2017. The event will take place in Los Angeles starting on July 30. Therefore, the earliest we will see the anticipated graphics cards is at the end of July.
In addition to that, AMD's graphics chips might also be an initial reveal of the hardware only. As a contrary to an actual launch, AMD's next generation Radeon Vega cards may not kick the shelves until several weeks after its revelation. So these GPUs is possible not to be on sale until the mid-August or possibly even later than that.
AMD's New Graphics Cards
AMD's first card features the next-gen graphics construction and architecture that will actually be the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition and according to the company, it is expected to go on sale starting on June 27.
However, this is an overpriced GPU targeted at professional and business users and not for just regular consumers. It is mainly designed in order to give emphasize and aid the likes of machine learning, applications artificial intelligence, heavyweight video editing and rendering it.
AMD makes the new frontier very efficient that is why it is very interesting to see how it will take on against Nvidia’s rival Quadro offerings. As reported by PCWorld, AMD has also been busy because of the Computex event. The company is discussing its plans and timelines for Ryzen mobile APUs to finally bring powerful performance to ultra-portable notebooks.
