When are new line of graphics card due from intel and AMD?

Hi guys just wondering if anyone knows when AMD and Intel will be releasing their new line of Graphics cards I've been in the process of building my new rig for a while now but I've been holding off on buying a graphics card because the current generation is coming upto a year old so i have no idea if intel have something in the works ready to be released.

  1. Well first off intel doesn't make GPUs. Also, AMD is releasing Vega next month, but that is for professional use (like how NVIDIA has Quadro). No idea when the gaming Vega comes out. You could buy one now, and still be satisfied. What do you have right now? What quality are you aiming for? What resolution are you going to be playing at?

  2. So it goes with the perpetual cycles of technology improvements....

    You can buy something great now. Vega will be coming out, and that will be equal, maybe better, maybe not, to the best that Nvidia currently has. Even if its only equal, it may drive prices down.

    But, then late this year or early next year, Nvidia's Volta will come out, which should be even better still.


    Likewise with CPUs. . . Coffee Lake coming from Intel, then, I can't remember, the next one that's supposed to go down to the 7nm process? More processing power, less power consumption, etc etc. In this case, I think Ryzen finally did cause Intel to stop sitting on their ass, and move a bit faster than they otherwise would've.

    But - this is the perpetual conundrum of building a system. The next, better thing is always just over the horizon.

    I'm going to either play at 1080p 144hz or 1440p 60 fps but not to sure yet just depend on the monitor i buy. My main focus in going to be on freesync if i got the 1440p 60 fps monitor route as the frames will need to be stable at lower fps. I'm in a bit of a predicament as the only GPU out worth getting with freesync is a rx 580 and the ost of one of them is now around the same price as a gtx 1070 which will display much higer frames than a rx 580 but then i think is it worth spending £300 on a GPU that is over 1 year old and could be replaced any minute then its value plummets. So options are £300 on a over priced mid range card capable of freesync but much lower fps or a higher end card, better fps but no freesync support and over 1 year old. The GPU market is in no mans land atm so its very hard deciding what to do.

    That is true, but then you have to realize that developers will need to make games to support new hardware. There aren't many games that can bring the 1070 to it's knees. I think getting the 1070 would still be a smart move. It's pretty much like the CPU world. I bought a 6700K last month. I'm not ashamed about it, I still get similar performance to the 7700K. If you aren't going into 4K land, the 1080 is a good buy too. Sure it's a bit expensive, but getting it for under $500 is still a steal if you ask. Not sure what's the economy is like in the UK, but if you can get one, go for it. However, the 1070 is still not a bad card. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B01M315CJH/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

    Do you have a source to back that up? With a definite date from AMD themselves? Not saying "a little while longer" with speculation is really concrete i my book.

    You know what i might just wait for Vega July/august then i will have more time to get some more cash together. Maybe if Vega is as good as people says its going to be it might force nvidea's hand to release volta much sooner than anticipated. AMD have pretty much forced intel to release coffee lake towards the end of this year completely abandoning there tick tock cycling plan coffee lake is expected to have 30% more improvement over current 7th series CPU'S things are starting to look interesting like they were back in the day.

    AMD announced that they would release RX Vega during SIGGRAPH 2017 which takes place from July 30th - August 3rd.

    Below are my sources and the third one is the most concrete as it has a lovely picture of Lisa Su and a presentation picture that shows RX Vega with text below is saying Launch SIGGRAPH 2017

    Uh the AMD conference at Computex? Lisa Su said Vega FE end of June, and Gaming Vega end of July. https://youtu.be/oWMGUdWVw2Y
