AMD Vega is rumored to be released two months from now or within the second quarter. With AMD Vega GPU and Ryzen CPU both in the market, speculations are running rampant about AMD's Raven Ridge APU which features both the Vega and the Ryzen. AMD Raven Ridge is said to be released this year.

AMD Ryzen is proven to be a successful product for the company, especially the newly released Ryzen 5 which is favored by analysts. Next in line would be the much-anticipated AMD Vega GPU, which will arrive on the market after two months, as reported by Tech Radar. This report was later confirmed by AMD via a message from their social media page.

The AMD Vega is expected to be launched in June since the Computex will be held in that month. The AMD Vega GPU is the attempt of AMD to touch the market ruled by Nvidia. The GPU is aimed for Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti. It is also speculated that the AMD Vega will be on par with 1080 Ti's performance, if not better, but it is the price where AMD will have an edge. The AMD Vega GPU is said to be cheap just like its Ryzen CPU counterpart.

On the other hand, according to TweakTown, that AMD's upcoming and AMD Radeon RX Vega is incompetent with the GeForce GTX 1080. The claim is based on the TechPowerUp GPU database's relative performance chart. The said chart shows that the AMD Vega is 5 percent slower as compared to the NIVIDA GeForce GTX 1080. AMD Vega is also seen 27 percent slower compared to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti at 1080p.

According to SegmentNext, the HBM2 of AMD Vega will fit with high resolutions and might score against its other competitors for HBM2 comes in very limited numbers. HBC allows the 4GB HBM2-based Radeon RX Vega to perform closer to the GeForce 10 series graphics card. With the AMD Vega, AMD would be focused on 4K and 8K gaming just like with the Quake Champions game.
