    Let me guess, it'll be a PC with a vega card, running at 4k, playing Doom on one monitor and sniper elite on another, while live streaming an AotS benchmark all at the same time while running at 60fps on hardware that's nowhere to actually be seen?

    Looks like a lot of partner machines in the background, but hopefully we get an answer to #WheresVega

    watching this is painful.

    And to be honest, I was mostly just watching because it's amusing seeing them talk about all the crap nobody actually cares about. Dell partnership "gaming" case that looks exactly like every other computer case for the past 20 years... uhhh okay.

    Yeah if Threadripper or Vega don't get new info or release dates, I'm gonna say this will be a disappointing Computex for amd.

    APU news! FINALLY

    50% more CPU power (duh)
    40% more GPU performance
    50% less power.

    4 cores, 8 threads, Vega-based graphics. WHOO.

    Well it looks like we know why vega gaming is on back seat. AMD seems to be fully focused on delivering APUs and Ryzen mobile and threadripper on time. CPUs is where its at for now guys. Gamers are going to have to wait it seems. I don't think they are too concerned about vega for gaming now. Plenty of miners are only helping their cause with the 580s being sold out everywhere.

    Why do these tards keep trying to claim an Intel CPU system can't stream games? Most people use GPUs to encode the streams anyway...

    maybe then can make some damn 580's so i can buy one. Ive been trying to buy one since about 3 weeks after launch (had to let the price settle). Had finger on trigger for a 470, then the bastards released 570/580, 470 went insta out of stock, prices went up, then stock dissapeared. Not happy.

    That's fine, I've been eyeing the 1070 for quite a while. Guess it's time for Radeon to get carried by Ryzen.

    What's better than announcing a product? ANNOUNCING IT TWICE!

    In other news:

    Every RTR chip has 64 lanes PCI-E

    Every RTR Chip has 4 channel DDR4.

    They showed actual Vega demos, but they couldn't seem to help but use 2+ GPUs at the same time for every demo. This I would take with some amount of worry.

    End of July for Vega! Looks like HBM2 is to blame here and Frontier edition will be the one launched a month ahead.
