AMD RX Vega would be up for showcasing by the month of May, and while AMD might be busy in fine tuning RX Vega's drivers, they have also announced the RX 500 series which would have the Polaris architecture, just like RX 480.
AMD has been in the news for a couple of months now, ever since they came up with benchmark shattering Ryzen 7 processors. AMD has understood that to stay in the processor and graphic card game, they have to up the competition. The result was the introduction of the Ryzen processors and the AMD Vega GPU.
Some of the AMD Ryzen rumors state that there would be three families of Ryzen processors, namely the Ryzen 3, the Ryzen 5 and the already out for retail Ryzen 7. Each of these processors families would be adept at different tasks, some would excel in single threaded performance and some would excel in multi-threaded performance.
AMD has secured the interest of many potential customers and has also addressed a GPU line for graphical power taxing games. AMD Vega rumors state that the Vega series would also be a new GPU family with Vega 10 and Vega 11 to be released sooner. As of now, however, there have been multiple reports about the RX Vega series, and some reports of a Vega 20 GPU are also coming in.
AMD Vega rumors suggest that the Vega 10 and Vega 11 would be the first in the Vega line to be shown, and would reportedly come at 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB memory capacities. Reports also claim that the Vega series would have multiple HBM2 stacks and have up to 4x power efficiency and 2x throughput compared to the Polaris architecture.
The Vega cards are also rumored to be direct competitors of NVIDIA's GTX 1000 series' flagships, including the GTX 1080Ti and the Titan X Pascal. All reports suggest that this year is going to be a great year for game developers and gamers alike.
Stay tuned for more AMD Vega rumors and updates.
