The release of AMD Radeon RX Vega is closer than ever before. AMD has revealed some new details about its highly anticipated family of Vega enthusiast graphics cards in an AMD event which was recently held in China.

According to VideoCardz, during the event AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su talked regarding AMD Ryzen 5, and there were a variety of tech demos but most importantly reveal has came from a segment of the presentation by Scott Herkelman, co-founder of BFG-Tech, former general GeForce manager at Nvidia, and currently a VP at AMD.

Scott Herkelman has revealed that AMD Radeon RX Vega will indeed be coming to notebooks in one form or the other. We also know that the upcoming Raven Ridge APUs will be coming to notebooks as well and that they will feature Vega integrated graphics.

AMD Radeon RX Vega would be important to AMD's laptop plans since AMD's 14nm Vega is compact and well-organized it can be leveraged in laptops, said the VP Herkelman. However, the revealed information wasn't exact enough to determine whether AMD Vega would come to laptops as a discrete graphics chip or in a new APU design, or via both of those routes, as reported by Segment Next.

AMD Radeon RX Vega cards is also said to be coming in the 8GB and 4GB HBM2 configurations. Both of these configurations will use 2nd-generation HBM2 that offers not only greater power efficiency but also improved memory bandwidth as compared with the 1st-gen HBM used in the Fury chips.

For the release of AMD Vega, during the Summit in Beijing, VP Herkelman has professed his excitement toward release by saying that, the AMD Radeon RX Vega card "is only around the corner." In addition, he also stated that more and more demos will be shared as its launch draws closer.
