AMD Confirms Vega Is Coming This Quarter!

AMD has released the announcement on the release of the highly anticipated Vega. The much-awaited graphics card will most likely come out anytime soon, June at the latest.

AMD took to its official Facebook account the announcement confirming the upcoming release of Vega. Although the announcement did not seem to be a planned one, made through an official trailer or poster, the statement released is official. Apparently, the announcement came in the form of a response to a query posted on the comments on the video presentation for AMD Ryzen Radeon.

As translated by wccftech, a fan asked about the release of Vega. AMD then graciously responded with "When it is ready.....and it will be this quarter."

It seems that the new graphics microarchitecture is almost done as the developer has already released a statement saying "this quarter." The wait will finally be over soon.

With AMD having teased the nearing release of the new cards, it seems that the company is unveiling its series of powerful products in short gaps. The company has just released its RX580 and RX570 last week.

Both cards have a lot of similarities with the previous RX480 and RX470. However, the recently released RX580 and RX570 are said to have increased speeds, better than the predecessors.

Moreover, aside from the upcoming Vega, AMD is also set to release the latest GPU soon. Prior to Vega, the company has planned to release the Radeon Pro Duo.

The Radeon Pro Duo is another milestone in the history of the company. This new GPU can simultaneously run four 4K 60Hz monitors.

Furthermore, the upcoming Radeon Pro Duo can powerfully integrate two RX cards onto one board only. This integration of two RX cards will result to an impressive 32GB of GDDR5 VRAM and 72 compute units, to create 11.45 TFLOPS of output. AMD is set to release the Radeon Pro Duo with a price tag of around $1,000.
