AMD to Launch their Vega line up Graphic Cards this Quarter

AMD Vega Lineup Graphic Cards

On facebook AMD while not giving us specific date at least confirmed that there isn’t a major delay of Vega. Now there is a chance of someone misspoke but as usual it’s fun to talk about. To be specific they said it’ll out this quarter. That was already expected but many seem to be getting worried it would be later since we’ve barely heard a peep from them for a while. So, that means we should be seeing Vega within the next two months, hopefully May instead of June but either way it’s not far off.

Keep calm, Vega is coming

The wait is over for the high-end graphics cards since the RX 500 series are already out in the market. AMD will announce their Vega graphic cards this quarter possibly in May or June. Now RX VEGA would be AMD’s high end GPU lineup. Also the VEGA architecture is looking very impressive so far.
