This is an event I've been dying to tell you all about: 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".

Where: Ruby Skye (420 Mason St, San Francisco, CA 94109)

When: February 28, 2017

10:00 AM - 10:30 AM: Doors open

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM: AMD Capsaicin & Cream Livestream

2:30 PM - 5:00 PM: Cream developer sessions

7:30 PM - Midnight: Capsaicin & Cream after party featuring a special guest DJ (Make sure to wear your badge from the events earlier in the day)
