AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU is the next generation of graphics. AMD obviously competes with the top GPU manufacturer, the Nvidia.

PC Games reported that the Radeon-red team is working hard to make the release date of the AMD Radeon RX Vega be early in the first half of this year 2017. The goal is to beat the top GPU manufacturer, Nvidia, and its latest GTX 1080 Ti.

Meanwhile, according to The Inquirer, the AMD Radeon RX Vega will come in two variants of 4GB and 8GB capacity applied with the use of the second-generation high-bandwidth of memory (HBM2). AMD Radeon gaming vice president and general manager Scott Herkelman stated that with this great bandwidth that the Radeon RX Vega has, it can possibly have the same bandwidth with the Nvidia's 11GB GTX 1080 Ti.

Rumors further claim that the AMD Radeon RX Vega will be packed with discrete mobile GPU. This kind of GPU is used in premium and gaming-oriented systems or if not it will possibly be included in the AMD's APUs. Eventually, Herkelman also mentioned that AMD believes in the capability of the Radeon RX Vega to be a very powerful GPU chip the will give manufacturers enough horsepower for virtual reality.

The AMD Radeon RX Vega is so tiny compared to the previous models released by AMD, but its power is incomparable with from the old bigger models. The good thing is, the GPU of the VEGA have passed a certification conducted by the South Korean National Radio Research Agency, confirming its preparedness for mass consumption.

Some reports also claim that the first Vega 10 GPU will be unveiled in May that will come along with the AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU. To complete the speculations, based from last year's event conducted by the AMD at the pre-Computex event in Macau, the company might release the RX Vega at an event of the Computex Trade Show in Taipei this year.
