AMD Vega GPU launch reportedly moved to October

 

AMD's Vega GPU launch has been reportedly moved to October, bringing Vega's release one full quarter earlier than expected. 

Rumors suggest that this GPU is intended to launch within the same timeframe as Battlefield 1, bringing what should be the first HBM 2 powered GPU to the market. 

Previous rumors suggest that AMD's first Vega GPU will have a total of 4096 GCN GPU cores, offering the same GPU core count as AMD's R9 Fury X, but with the efficiency and performance improvements that we will see with AMD's Polaris range of GPUs. 

 

  AMD Vega GPU launch reportedly moved to October  (AMD's VEGA GPU was always hinted at a late 2016 or early 2017 release)

 

At this time, we can only guess at the performance of AMD's Vega GPU. Even now details on the performance of AMD's Polaris GPUs are very vague, so guessing any further ahead serves no purpose at this point. 

2016 is shaping to be a very interesting year in the GPU market, and it is very clear right now that the release of Pascal this month is only just the beginning. Right now AMD is rumored to be announcing their first Polaris GPUs at the end of this month, just before Computex in Taipei Taiwan.

I think AMD will wipe Nvidia with these using hbm2 given the initial results thus far for nvidia and gddr5xQuote
