AMD Radeon RX Vega is the high-end gaming oriented graphics card for which all are waiting. However, latest reports suggest that AMD will start shipping Radeon RX Vega chips to its board partners as early as this week to finalize their custom card designs. After this, the custom AIB RX Vega cards will ship between late July and early August.

According to HWBattle, AMD Radeon RX Vega silicon ships to company's board partners this week. The custom AMD RX Vega cards will then transport in late-July/early August, shortly after the reference cards.

AMD CEO Lisa Su previously confirmed that the Vega GPUs will be revealed at SIGGRAPH and will be available for the masses by the end of July or early August.  However, there are other sources which are claiming that AMD Vega will not release until later this year and hence there is a lot of confusion regarding AMD Vega release window.

The gaming-oriented AMD Radeon RX Vega will probably be based on the same Vega 64 and Vega 56 silicon and these parts will be particularly optimized for games. According to the Radeon graphics guru Raja Koduri, these parts will be faster than the latest Vega Frontier Edition card, as reported by Segment Next.

There have been lots of leaks regarding AMD Vega GPUs and while nothing has been confirmed yet, one thing for sure is that AMD GPUs will be cheaper than Nvidia. If this will be the case then AMD does not need to be on par with Nvidia GPUs.

AMD's first Vega-based graphics card, the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, is scheduled to be available in late June. More details regarding AMD Radeon RX Vega will be revealed from AIB partners before the official launch of the graphics card at Siggraph 2017, which is scheduled to kick off on July 30.
