AMD Will Show off Radeon RX Vega at Computex

Radeon VP Raja Koduri participated in a reddit AMA this week and revealed some nuggets of Vega-related info. While he would not discuss price or launch date, he did reveal that the consumer product will be shown off during Computex. It is not clear whether we will get solid release information at that time, however. Mr. Koduri asks prospective buyers to be patient, as RX Vega includes novel, limited technologies such as HBM2 that "can’t be mastered overnight."

We’ll be showing Radeon RX Vega off at Computex, but it won't be on store shelves that week. We know how eager you are to get your hands on Radeon RX Vega, and we’re working extremely hard to bring you a graphics card that you’ll be incredibly proud to own. Developing products with billions of transistors and forward-thinking architecture is extremely difficult -- but extremely rewarding -- work. And some of Vega’s features, like our High Bandwidth Cache Controller, HBM2, Rapid-Packed Math, or the new geometry pipeline, have the potential to really break new ground and fundamentally improve game development. These aren’t things that can be mastered overnight.
