AMD teases their Vega GPU architecture on their Radeon RX Twitter account

2016 has been something of a brutal year for many, but for the world of tech, it’s been nothing short of spellbinding, especially during last few months of this year.

For AMD’s Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) GPU R&D division, the year end couldn't come any sooner, and 2017  is something to look forward to. The company already has big plans and announcements to make during the first quarter of 2017, chief among which being the upcoming announcement of the Vega GPU architecture.

AMD's Radeon Technologies Group (RTG) recently posted a teaser on their official Radeon RX Twitter account.

In an effort to keep the community interested, the company recently tweeted a teaser on their official Radeon RX account. The tweet, in all its cryptic form, says very little, and the teaser image itself shows a person with what seems to be a red hoodie walking towards a small pillar of light.

As it stands, there’s not a whole lot to be deciphered from the tweet, but there are a few things that we can surmise. Firstly, this is the first official teaser for the Vega GPU architecture, and secondly, it’s a sign that AMD’s RTG is definitely on track with their plans to announce their new GPU in the early parts of 2017. Last but not least (and this purely just speculation at this point), there’s a possibility that AMD’s RTG is going to be classified under a new series (i.e. Radeon RX 500 series).

AMD’s Vega GPU architecture is the company’s highly anticipated GPU, and it’s the first new enthusiast-level GPU based on new lithography since the release of Fiji GPU architecture in 2015. If the rumors prove to be true, then AMD’s next-generation enthusiast-level graphics cards will also be the first graphics card to actually utilize the new HBM2 memory format.
