AMD’s upcoming top-of-the-line graphics cards may be launched as early as October 2016, VideoCardz.com reports.
The company is set to reveal its Polaris architecture later this month, which will cater for the mid-range PC gaming market, featuring exceptional power efficiency and budget pricing.
Although the Polaris reveal will probably produce some powerful graphics cards, AMD’s real competitor to Nvidia’s GTX recently-announced 1080 will be the upcoming Vega architecture.
The Vega architecture promises massive amounts of processing power coupled with a new type of memory – HBM2.
These powerful graphics cards will not feature the value-oriented focus of the Polaris cards, instead catering for the hardcore and enthusiast PC gaming market.
It has been rumoured that the new graphics cards will be revealed alongside Battlefield 1 in October 2016, as oppose to its expected 2017 launch date.
