Info on AMD’s Radeon RX Vega graphics cards could be coming as soon as today, according to teases from both AMD Radeon Technologies Group’s head, Raja Koduri, and Chris Hook, AMD Radeon senior marketing director. Both have sent out cryptic tweets teasing what may be a full reveal later this evening.
Hook tweeted out early this morning saying “Riddle me this: When I'm wild, Davy Crockett is king, and while I'm also an airline, some say I'm really a Vega #sweet16”.
Sweet 16 appears to be alluding to today, May 16th.
Raja Koduri fanned the flames when he sent out his own tweet linking to Hook’s, along with the message "Ok..complete the sentence..we stand today on the edge of a ...... (first 10 people who get this right will get something special).” He’s reference a famous speech from John F. Kennedy, which ends with “we stand today on the edge of a new frontier.”
Heading back to Hook’s previous tweet for a moment, he says he’s “also an airline”, possibly a reference to US airline Frontier, based in Colorado.
All signs now point to AMD’s launch event for Radeon RX Vega being dubbed New Frontier, and we may hear something about it very soon indeed.
