AMD has finally confirmed it will be indeed launching Radeon RX Vega at SIGGRAPH 2017, which takes place in LA between July 30 and August 3. I will be on the ground at SIGGRAPH, covering the event itself, and everything AMD will be announcing - including Radeon RX Vega - at the show.

The official Radeon Twitter account tweeted: "We can't wait to announce our new Vega products, including RX at this year's #SIGGRAPH - make sure to follow us for more details". Boom. Radeon RX Vega confirmed for an early August reveal, but I'm confident we'll hear much more from AMD between then and now, and I'm sure some NDAs will be thrown onto the table, too.

AMD launched its new Radeon Vega Frontier Edition recently, with some so-so gaming performance that rivals a GeForce GTX 1070, but even some of the largest people in the tech industry - including influential tech YouTubers, are comparing its gaming performance against gaming-focused cards. It's not a gaming-orientated card, but a professional card that can game if the owner wants to, instead of switching between graphics cards for professional, and then personal/gaming use.

Radeon RX Vega will be tuned for gaming, so expect improved gaming performance over the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. We'll know more about it soon, and I'm sure with the amount of content you see me writing every day - you can count on the latest on Radeon RX Vega as it happens here at TweakTown.
