AMD VEGA DETAILS

AMD has released some slides for the new Vega GPU. While the AMD Vega is designed for the high end of the market, we expect to see the AMD Polaris 10 and 11 continue to serve the $99 to $249 market bands. So far AMD seems to be positioning Vega cards at the enthusiast market segment and continuing to use Polaris for the entry level and competitive market segments.
