AMD has recently confirmed that Radeon RX Vega graphics card will be available within the next two months. The company earlier indicated that the initial Radeon RX Vega offerings were 'expected' to ship in the second quarter of this year, which means before the end of June, and now AMD has confirmed this with a message on social media.

Until now, AMD hasn't revealed any information on when Vega might be officially introduced. This has left gamers waiting impatiently for stronger competition with Nvidia's Pascal architecture. Currently, however, it looks like AMD might have loosen its tighten lips, with its AMD Poland Facebook page revealing that AMD Vega will arrive this quarter, as reported by Digital Trends.

AMD has yet to narrow down an official release date for the RX Vega; however, at last, right now there is official launch date window of sorts, via AMD Poland's Facebook. On a profile picture post promoting Ryzen and Radeon a user asked 'when will Vega be ready?' and got the response from AMD that 'when it is ready... and it will be this quarter.' Given that this quarter ends in June, so we can expect the AMD Vega to launch within the next two months, assuming no unexpected delays occur at the last minute, as per KitGuru.

Apart from release date AMD has also revealed the details about the rumored specification capabilities of RX Vega GPU. AMD showed off a Vega GPU dealing with processing 8K video in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, accelerated by Vega, at the recent NAB show in Las Vegas.

According to CompuBench results, AMD Vega will offer competitive performance compared to the Nvidia GTX 1080 but considerably lower than the GTX 1080 Ti. Without knowing where in the AMD Vega line the tested GPU is positioned, we don't know if that's low-end, midrange, or high-end Vega performance.
