AMD to Host Capsaicin Event during GDC 2017

What’s the big deal here? Well, AMD revealed substantial Radeon stuff at the last Capsaicin Event, so many are assuming they have something interesting to drop at this year’s occasion as well. Particularly, will we be seeing a grand unveil of Vega? We’ll find out on the last day of the month, as the event unfolds at the Ruby Skye theater ( whatever happened to the Radeon mascot, anyway? ).

آ…AMD will be hosting their new Capsaicin event during the Game Developers Conference on February 28. During GDC 2016, AMD hosted their first Capsaicin event where we got to see the Radeon Pro Duo and a bigger tease of Polaris 10 before its release a few months later. But what should we expect from Capsaicin this year? Well, I expect a larger tease of Vega - in fact, I'd really enjoy a massive unveiling of Vega at Capsaicin. You'll be able to tune into the Capsaicin livestream, which will begin at 10:30AM on February 28, which AMD teases as a "feature-packed show highlighting the hottest new graphics and VR technologies propelling the games industry forward".
