We are so close, so very close - 12 more days until we get the skinny on Radeon RX Vega. AMD confirmed the news through Raja Koduri's Reddit AMA on Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, that AMD will be showcasing Radeon RX Vega at Computex on May 31.

During the AMA, Koduri said: "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. [...] We're working as hard as we can to bring you Radeon RX Vega".

Koduri added: "On HBM2, we're effectively putting a technology that's been limited to super expensive, out-of-reach GPUs into a consumer product. Right now only insanely priced graphics cards from our competitors that aren't within reach of any gamer or consumer make use of it. We want to bring all of that goodness to you. And that's not easy! It's not like you can run down to the corner store to get HBM2. The good news is that unlike HBM1, HBM2 is offered from multiple memory vendors - including Samsung and Hynix - and production is ramping to meet the level of demand that we believe Radeon Vega products will see in the market".
