AMD has finally announced a date where they’ll announce the consumer-oriented Radeon RX Vega. The mythical card’s launch will be taking place at SIGGRAPH this year.
SIGGRAPH is an interesting choice for a venue, as it’s not a consumer event (as opposed to say E3 or IFA), but AMD is no stranger to the show, having launched their Radeon WX professional products there last year.
SIGGRAPH runs from July 30th to August 3rd, so it’s almost exactly 2 months out.

The presentation for Vega at Computex wasn't good...
They used two Vega cards to run Prey at 4K, and there was screen tearing.
A GTX 1080Ti can get about 88FPS with high minimums. I'm considering buying a GTX1080Ti now, instead of waiting...

Interesting to use Prey for the demo, considering it is not a demanding game at all but it is optimized for amd.  I just finished playing it yesterday, fun game btw.

Honestly screw them and this Vega crap, I love their rx 400/500 cards for mining but they just keep dicking gamers around with these promises.  Once it is released then it is likely to only see gtx 1080 speeds, no better just a loong wait.

AMD is awfully late to the ballgame, at least for gamers. With the way their current GPUs are flying off the shelves for the mining craze I hope that means their cash flow is doing well at the least.

Vega was and is DOA. By the time Vega is out, Nvidia will get more progress on Volta, and most gamers already bought the 1080/1080ti for serious gaming, nobody is going to wait months for this. Wondering if the sales of the 500 series due to miners has influenced this any. Threadripper sounds like a nice semi-consumer CPU, I just hope it comes in time.

I was on the Budapest AMD vega event, which was a joke, however i had the possibility to talk a guy from AMD.

I asked him about AMD's view on mining. He sad, that a group of Radeon developers working on special AMD Vega RX mininig card, which will have more durable components and better cooling and would be fine tuned for mining.

I asked about Ethereum and  about which miner do they testing on? He didn't reply me with clear answer, but he mentioned Claymore miner, and besides of that they inspecting all miner programs.

I asked them about the BIOS mods on VEGA cards, he sad that miner cards surely wont have any limitation regarding bios mod, and likely consumer version wont have either.
