AMD’s first graphics cards based on the “Polaris” architecture are slated for a late-May launch, according to Thai tech site Zolkorn. It looks like AMD is planning a pretty elaborate launch event in Macau, China just a few days before Computex 2016 starts in Taipei.
AMD has reportedly sent out invites to media outlets, although it is very limited (compared to NVIDIA’s GTX 1080 laucnh event). At the event we could see the paper-launch of the first Radeon R9 400 series graphics cards based on the 14nm “Ellesmere” and “Baffin” chips. Then we could see AIB-branded cards at Computex with market availability coming shortly after.
