While many tech outlets are currently chipping away at their GTX 1080 reviews before the embargo lifts, AMD is preparing to show off its first Polaris architecture graphics cards this month and it looks like we will be getting our first look quite soon as AMD will be holding an ‘inside look at Polaris’ stream next week.
This is a ‘Meet the Experts’ panel at which David Nalasco, AMD’s Sr. Technology Manager at Radeon Technology Group will speak a little bit about the technology behind the new Polaris architecture, which aims to be the biggest leap yet for the company in terms of performance per watt.
This isn’t fully open to the public, those interested do need to register and be approved to view the panel, which will go on for around 30 minutes on the 18th of May at 2PM UK time. Current rumours point towards an end of May press conference for the proper Polaris GPU unveiling, which will be targeting the mainstream GPU market.
There is also a rumour going around that AMD might bump up the release date of its Vega graphics card. However, this is most likely false information as there is no real source behind it at all.
KitGuru Says: We still don’t know fully what to expect from AMD’s upcoming Polaris graphics cards but there will apparently be two released this year. Are any of you waiting to upgrade your GPU this year?
