During the event AMD also announced that it will be releasing a 16 core professional CPU too. this added to AMD's silence about its gaming vega cards at the event indicates that they are now targeting the professional market rather than gamers, so it maybe a long wait for vega gaming graphics cards.

AMD's graphical offerings have historically fallen behind Nvidia in terms of performance and reputation among users, particularly gamers, with the latter company's Pascal series being significantly more impressive than AMD's equivalent at the time of launch. It is scheduled for summer 2017.

He was like, 'What do you mean? Shin-Soo Choo led the Rangers at the plate Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with three RBI. Drink in hand, he popped onto the screen to say "hey" to the reporter and anyone watching.

Consumer notebook PC solutions- Ryzen Mobile APUs (codenamed "Raven Ridge") integrate a 4-core, 8-thread "Zen"-based CPU and high-performance "Vega" graphics to deliver an expected 50 percent increase in CPU performance and over 40 percent better graphics performance, at half the power of its previous generation". The company has claimed that their latest chip is created to deliver 50% more performance than today's most powerful machine learning GPUs. It may not be what most people were expecting but it's still an interesting card nonetheless. "AMD is the only company with the combination of high-performance computing and graphics technologies required to deliver truly immersive and instinctive computing experiences". That's the same amount as AMD's current high-end card the Radeon Fury X. The AMD's Vega family will be included with a new chip called as AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition. Wherever Vega lands, we certainly need AMD's Radeon Technology Group back in the mix at the high end even if it is not the ultra-high end.

Unlike AMD's previous GPU launches, Vega FE isn't targeted at consumers, but rather at the booming artificial intelligence, machine learning, and creative markets where GPUs are now in extremely high demand.
