If you’ve been waiting to see what the pinnacle of AMD’s graphics cards look like, you’re about to find out. The company is using this year’s Game Developers Conference as a platform to lift the lid on their Vega GPUs, and you can watch the livestream right here.
Called AMD Capsaicin & Cream – capsaicin is the component in chilli that adds that extra kick – the event becoming a regular event for AMD. They’re expected to showcase a range of games, as well as AMD’s efforts with VR. AMD also announced a “long-term” strategic partnership with Bethesda earlier this morning, and it would be odd if they didn’t at least mention that, or outline more of what that means, during the livestream.
You can watch the full event below, which kicks off in a few minutes. What are you expecting to see – and more importantly, how good do you think the Vega GPUs will be? (I reckon they’ll be numbered RX 500-something, with performance comparable to or better than a GTX 1070 for about $US350-399.)
