AMD held a live stream event last February 28, during the GDC 2017, the 2nd Annual "Capsaicin & Cream" Live Event. AMD's Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) together with other software and hardware companies into gaming unveiled their upcoming lineup of technologies. Among them is the AMD VEGA. While they didn't say many details about the AMD Vega release date, however, they did reveal what it's going to be called. We have already heard quite a lot of code names like Vega 11, Vega 10, Vega 20, RX 500, RX 490 and the list goes on. Finally, now we know that it's going to be called the Radeon RX Vega. Interestingly, it got a fancy looking logo as well shaped in the form of a V which is something shown earlier at the AMD Ryzen tech day event.

AMD Specs

No exact specifications of the RX VEGA yet, however, according to a source, Vega's high-bandwidth cache controller has been rated to increase to maximum frame rates by 50% and minimum frame rates by 100% over the last generation with GDDR5. And, to its credit, AMD has already announced quite a bit at the high level about what these cards are capable of. Furthermore, it's already enough, that you could battle the AMD RX Vega to the NVIDIA 1080, or perhaps the 1080 Ti.

AMD Vega Price And Release Date

Unfortunately, there is no official word as well when it comes to how much of the new Vega products will cost when they arrive later this year. The pricing will also play a huge factor in its faceoff for supremacy against the NVIDIA GTX 1080 or even the GTX 1080 Ti. AMD Vega release date is expected to be announced soon considering that it is already Q1 2017. Expect the release date to coincidentally arrives somewhere near when Nvidia plans for its GTX 1080 Ti availability.
