AMD's Vega GPUs will launch in 2017

 

According to recent AMD presentation to investors the companies Vega GPUs will launch in the first half of 2017, which means that AMD will not be releasing any new GPUs 2016. 

Despite the lack of any new high-end GPU releases AMD has been successful in regaining some market share in recent months, thanks to increased sales in the low-end market. Recent growth has been thanks to the release of the AMD RX 400 series of GPUs, though at this time AMD has no competitors to Nvidia's high-end GTX 10 series, leaving them in a tricky position.

Vega will be a new enthusiast-grade product for AMD, aimed a high resolution/framerate gaming and offer premium VR performance, hopefully allowing the company to continue regaining market share from Nvidia. 

At this time no specification are known for AMD's high-end Vega lineup of GPUs, but we do know that their highest end products will use HBM2 memory.

All-in-all AMD plans on introducing a lot of new products over the next year, with hopes to regain market share in both the consumer CPU and GPU market as well as in the server/enterprise markets. AMD hopes that the company can achieve profitability in 2017/2018, though this will rely greatly on how the market reacts to their new range of CPU and GPU products.

But which Vega? 10 could be considered the high mainstream whereas 11 would be enthusiast? Could go either way tbhQuote

I really hope that AMD surprises us all with a GPU with a 384-bit memory bus to make an RX 490. I would love to see a competitor to Nvidia's GTX 1070 or perhaps higher.Quote

Well Vega is basically gaurenteed to be a 384bit as anything with more CUs would add more to the bus width. But that alone doesn't mean anything. We would need more IPC gains, more advanced Asynchronous Compute performance, and better tessellation performance to really blow everyone away instead of just simply adding more cores.

But considering GCN up to now has been IP8 based architecture for AMD, Vega is IP9 for them so we should see something amazingQuote

I think the 490 is a dual 480 from the sounds of it, and should be released October.

Maybe Vega will just have names, kinda like the Fury line?Quote

Probably Vega 11. Otherwise it would be too many Fury's for two different chips. Wouldn't make senseQuote
