AMD Confirms Launch Of Vega Graphic Cards With Stunning 8K Resolution

AMD announces that it will soon be launching one of its most anticipated products: Vega graphic cards with 8k resolution. The company has confirmed that it will be releasing these powerful imaging cards in two months. The company gave a demonstration of the brute force of its upcoming Vega GPU during the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show last week in Las Vegas.

The demonstration was a good way to show how the latest Vega products handle 4K and 8K graphics. The next-generation Radeon Pro professional graphics card based on the Vega GPU can handle 8K video processing in Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2017. It can also handle 4K post-processing with Radeon ProRender, which results to amazingly high-end graphics.

According to PC World, the NAB show is aimed at the TV and film industry, while AMD focuses on enhancing the gaming experience. Since 8K is gradually becoming a growing trend in TV and movies, the American multinational semiconductor company has been wooing the industry to adopt its GPUs. Presently, computer users are still entrenched in 4K, while the 8K resolution is considered about two to three years away.

However, with the latest Vega graphic cards, gamers will be among the first to experience 8K. The demo at the NAB show was a good way to display Vega's graphics capability. Meanwhile, Dell has already said its 8K monitor works with Polaris-based Radeon WX 7100 GPUs, but not with optimal performance.

According to TechRadar, it’s more likely that the AMD Vega cards are going to be launched in June. This coincides with Computex, which is Taipei's International Information Technology Show to be commenced on the last day of May. This makes it a very likely launching platform, however, as in the world of technology, we might still see an earlier launch for the powerful next-gen GPU.
