AMD is making headlines again, this time for confirming the launch of its gaming-focused graphics card, the Radeon RX Vega. According to the company's announcement, AMD is expected to launch the graphics card targeted towards ardent-gamers this coming July, following the release of its flagship Frontier Edition.

According to a source, the executive revealed that the Frontier Edition of the next-gen graphics card will roll out in late-June, following the release of the Ryzen 3 earlier next month. According to Su, the Radeon RX Vega will arrive "very soon thereafter," which it means it'll come early July. More so, Su's announcement came a week after an AMD analyst day event, which lures much attention to its upcoming server microprocessor and data center plans and that includes the RX Vega and Ryzen. During the alleged event, Su also unveiled the company's plans to take a big step for their CPU and GPU products as they shift to 7nm process architectures.

Moreover, the upcoming Vega graphics card during the JP Morgan event features a brand new architecture that has the world's most advanced memory architecture for GPUs. Aside from its full 16GB of memory, it also boasts of a 1,600 MHz clock speed with IP V 9.0 Generation graphics card and will challenge directly with NVIDIA's top-of-the-line graphics cards.

Also, during the JP Morgan Conference, AMD announced in an interview, that it will be taping out some 7nm products at the end of the year. This will serve as the preparation for the 2018 debut of the AMD Zen 2 and Zen 3 in 2020. Furthermore, If AMD aims its Vega GPUs to be competitive on the top-end with Nvidia's Pascal-series GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti, then perhaps, AMD cards will come around $699.
