AMD announces Capsaicin Siggraph with no word about RX Vega

Published: 30th Jun 2017, 21:13 GMT   Comments

AMD promises a big event with ‘extremely limited in seats’. 

AMD Radeon Instinct, EPYC, Threadripper and… Radeon Pro Vega

Update: AMD has changed the description, it no longer says “Radeon Pro Family”. It does not change the fact that RX Vega is still missing.

Original story: If there’s anything gamers expect to see at SIGGRAPH, it’s Radeon RX Vega. The new announcement actually does mention Vega, but only Radeon Pro Vega. Unlike previous Ryzen or EPYC events, Capsaicin is organized by Radeon Technologies Group.

The history of Capsaicin events:

  • March 2016 — AMD Capsaicin — “Radeon Pro Duo”
  • March 2017 — AMD Capsaicin & Cream — “Radeon Vega is Radeon RX Vega”
  • July 2017 — AMD Capsaicin SIGGRAPH — ??

The official description of the event mentions:

  • Newest additions to Radeon Pro based on Vega architecture
  • Radeon Pro
  • Ryzen Threadripper
  • EPYC
  • Radeon Instinct

… but not a word about Radeon RX Vega, which is quite strange, considering the fact that it was already confirmed by Lisa Su herself. Either way, the actual event will take place on July 30.

The official description of Capsaicin SIGGRAPH follows.
