AMD Ryzen has been making headlines lately, and people are desperately waiting to buy the processor and couple it with an AM4 Ryzen compatible motherboard. Meanwhile, reports of AMD Ryzen being the Intel i7 beater are coming in. AMD Ryzen rumors have it that after proper Windows 10 scheduler and BIOS updates, the processor performance would be better than current benchmarks. 

AMD already announced the Ryzen 5 series on April 11, and to couple with Mass Effect: Andromeda's launch, AMD has benchmarked the supposedly upcoming Radeon RX 500 series, with RX 560, RX 570 and RX 580 in tow. However, these GPUs will have the old Polaris architecture and would not be called Radeon RX Vega.

The AMD Vega rumors are making people excited since it is the first major direct competitor of GTX 1080Ti which was released recently. The GTX 1080Ti is priced slightly higher than the GTX 1080 at $699. AMD Vega rumors have it that the GPU might not be as scalable as the GTX 1080Ti, which is the current 4K king. 

Therefore AMD might have to price the AMD Vega accordingly to make it every bit as competitive as the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1080Ti while keeping costs low. According to certain AMD Ryzen rumors, the AMD Vega would be a different card series and not a 500 series like the RX500.

AMD Vega rumors also suggest that the GPU would launch soon after Ryzen 5 is showcased. Meanwhile, the RX 570 and RX 580 are coming on April 18, 2017. AMD Vega architecture would be seen in a number of cards following the RX Vega, and these cards will go head to head against top tier NVIDIA GTX cards.

With AMD making big promises with the RX 500, RX Vega and the Ryzen 7 series, an average gamer and power user can only be impressed. AMD has set its eyes upwards and wants to become the processor and GPU vending giant, ahead of Intel and NVIDIA. Only time would tell if they can become what they aim to be.

Stay tuned for more AMD Vega rumors and updates.
