AMD Tipped to Unleash Radeon RX Vega Cards at Computex 2017

According to a new report, AMD board partners could debut their custom graphics cards based on the next-generation Vega architecture at Computex this year. Computex Taipei 2017 kicks off on the 30th of this month, so we won’t need to wait very long to find out everything about the new Radeon RX Vega cards.

Another report published by the same source suggests AMD could have fewer than 16,000 units of Vega cards on sale in the first few months after the official launch. Since HBM2 memory chips are available only in very limited quantities currently, AMD will not be able to scale up the production of Vega-based cards until the fourth quarter of the year. This is definitely bad news for AMD Radeon fans, as such a limited supply would mean very few will be able to get their hands on the new cards.

Unlike the Radeon RX 500 series that AMD announced recently, the Vega-based cards will be targeted at the high-end segment. No concrete leak has surfaced online yet, so we still have no clear idea regarding the performance potential of the Vega architecture. An alleged Vega prototype was caught in 3DMark recently, revealing performance numbers similar to a GeForce GTX 1070 from NVIDIA. However, since it was just a prototype, we don’t think the numbers should be taken very seriously.

While custom cards based on Vega are likely to be showcased at Computex, AMD might officially unveil the Vega architecture at a media event on the 16th of this month in Sunnyvale California. Along with Vega, AMD is also expected to showcase its Navi and Zen+ architectures at the event.

  1. оf course like your web site but you Һave to take a
    look aat the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of thedm arе rife with sрᥱlling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell thee truth on the other hanjd I will certaіnly come

    I really hope Vega can do something more (at something lower price) than a 1070.

    The sweetspot would be a Vega priced at 400€ (I’m from Europe) with a performance of a 1080 (that can now be bought at 460€ here). More than this price (with that performance or lower) would be a big no-no, IMHO.

    BTW, since 1070 can be found at 360€ here, a VEGA with that performance should cost 300€ to be competitive from the beginning, due to its late arrival.

    I guess that future nVidia GPUs will be released soon enough, so the market is very hard for AMD, right now.

    As I mentioned in the article, we still don’t have a good idea regarding the performance potential of the Vega-based graphics cards. AMD is likely to announce the Radeon RX Vega products next month, so you will need to wait until then to get your answer.

    Babu, of course. Mine was…wishful thinking 🙂
