At Computex 2017, AMD was expected to officially announce its new top-of-the-range gaming GPU, Radeon RX Vega, but after focusing on Ryzen, EPYC, Threadripper, and its APUs, Lisa Su announced that we will hear about Vega at SIGGRAPH 2017, an event that starts on July 30th.
Now we have started the weekend with bad news after the update of the Capsaicin event of AMD, in March it was defined as “AMD Capsaicin & Cream — “Radeon Vega is Radeon RX Vega“, now the event is defined as AMD Capsaicin SIGGRAPH, but worst of all is the official description of the event:
- Newest additions to Radeon Pro based on Vega architecture
- Radeon Pro
- Ryzen Threadripper
- Radeon Instinct
Exactly, not a single word around Radeon RX Vega, previously Lisa Su had officially confirmed the presentation of this new family of graphics cards for the gaming segment that would be announced on July 30. If it’s true, then we would see AMD’s top of the range GPU competes with the GeForce GTX 1080, but with a TDP of 300W (Vs 180W) in addition to the more than mentioned problems, AMD is suffering with the shortage of HBM2 memory.

AMD will have a booth located at #301 on the SIGGRAPH exhibition floor, where visitors will be able to see professional workflows powered by Radeon Pro graphics products.
