The upcoming graphics lineup from AMD, the Vega chips are expected to be unveiled very soon. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su,  in their recent quarterly report, has mentioned that the new Radeon RX Vega chips will be released within the next two months.

AMD had a very successful year with the launch of their latest generation processing chips that has seen a surge in their stock markets while trying to close the gap in the competition with their competitors Intel. Now, the company's primary focus has shifted to the graphics departments even if the Ryzen R3 processors are yet to be launched. AMD RX Vega chips will be a primary competitor to Nvidia's current generation Pascal chips that begin at a price of $180 peaking up to a price of $1200 for the Titan Xp chip that was released recently.

According to reports from WCCFTech, AMD has designed their new Radeon RX Vega chips right from scratch in order to address data and visually intensive workloads. AMD Vega chips are primarily targeted at professional gamers, enterprise, and workstations. Many people in the industry had expected the new chips earlier due to a new product released by AMD's primary competitor.

AMD Radeon RX Vega chips are based on 14nm graphics architecture by providing four times the power efficiency compared to their present cards. The cards are also expected to have twice the performance and bandwidth per pin.

Overall, AMD is making sure their cards aren't priced too high in order to facilitate all gamers irrespective of cash at hand, to enjoy a more powerful graphical experience in the games they play. Benchmarks for a single card is already out revealing that it will be competing with the existing GTX 1070 graphics card from Nvidia. Stay tuned for more news about Radeon RX Vega.
