If there was one thing gamers worldwide were wishing to see at SIGGRAPH 2017, it’s AMD’s long-anticipated Radeon RX Vega. A new announcement from the company actually mentions Vega, but only Radeon Pro Vega. The US-based chip giant has previously stated that it is preparing for a big event full of substance, but “limited in seats”.

AMD Radeon RX Vega release date

Also, unlike the EPYC or Ryzen events from earlier this year, Capsaicin is being organized by Radeon Technologies Group (RTG).

Here’s a quick look at the recent history of Capsaicin events:

  • AMD Capsaicin (March 2016): Radeon Pro Duo
  • AMD Capsaicin & Cream (March 2017): Radeon Vega is Radeon RX
  • AMD Capsaicin SIGGRAPH (July 2017): TBA

The official description of the event mentions the following: New additions to the Radeon Pro lineup (Vega); Radeon Instinct; Ryzen Threadripper; EPYC; Radeon Pro.

There was, however, not even a single mention of Radeon RX Vega – strange, right? Especially considering that RX Vega was confirmed by none other than CEO Lisa Su herself.

Here’s an excerpt from the official description of Capsaicin SIGGRAPH:

On July 30, learn about our newest additions to the Radeon™ Pro family featuring the cutting-edge Radeon™ “Vega” architecture. Hear from our partners on how AMD’s product lineup – Radeon Pro, Ryzen™ Threadripper™, EPYC™ and Radeon Instinct™ – is revolutionizing the creative pipeline, leading industries from entertainment to engineering into a new era of precision and performance.

Register by July 25th, as seats are extremely limited for this exclusive presentation and make sure to show up early to secure a good seat.
