This must be why we had those couple posts from Raja about major milestone for Vega being done

Well if the GPU hardware design is now 100% done and moving into pre-production testing, it should take 2 months or so for the testing to be completely finished and then a month of ramping up and shipping to partners, and a month of partner production and shipping to retail outlets, we *could* see a late October to November launch. Albeit with most likely short supplies, similar to the launch supplies we saw of the 1080. Though supposed AMD sources do say early 2017. They must want real stock around
Good news is that as of today, AMD is celebrating the end of actual hardware design and shipping the designs into the hands of in-house and 3rd party developers.
It’s never been a better time to be a gamer. According to official sources at AMD, we should not expect to see Vega 10 GPU before first quarter of 2017. That information is contradicted by other sources close to the company, which claim AMD is working night and day of making a simultaneous launch of ZEN-based high-end CPU and Vega 10 GPU
So who knows, both are possibilitiesEdited by EniGma1987 - 6/24/16 at 8:32am
