It was a quite year for AMD's graphics department in 2018, but 2019 has the opportunity to call a little with the expected announcement and launch of new Vega II graphics processors built on a 7nm process.
The wait for a new AMD graphics card has been long and difficult, but Vega II can put AMD back on the map. Based on what we have heard, AMD's 7nm GPU architecture can surpass Nvidia Turing 12nm graphics card from both a curved architectural aspect and for performance at cost.
Cut the hunt
- What is it? AMD's first 7nm graphics card
- When is it out? Likely within the first half of 201
- What will it cost? TBD
AMD Vega II release date
AMD Vega II's release date remains a mystery, but there has been a lot of speculation and leaks on the internet street. Currently, the most reliable release date we can tie down in the first half – indeed, is the tightest window we've seen so far.
The original series of Vega graphics cards built on a 14nm process was published by CES 2017 and did not turn on the consumer market until August . Now, two years later, we are probably due to Vega II's announcement, and there is a possibility that AMD may follow the same rollout pattern.
There have been many signs pointing to a disclosure on CES 2019 ]. First, AMD will have a main speech on CES . The keynote paired with the recent spotting of a new trademark application for what looks like a Vega II logo strong hint on Vega II in the main note. Given the AMD GPU roadmap, Vega II would be built on a 7nm process.
PCGamesN has suggested that the new 7nm Vega II may be released as early as the end of the first quarter of 2019. However, Wccftech believes it may take the end of the first half of 2019 for the GPU to beat the market. Since the first line of consumer Vega cards took more than half a year from their announcement to the release, the Q1 release seems optimistic.

AMD Vega II Prize
If you thought the AMD Vega II release date was nebulous, then pricing on AMD's new graphics card is an even greater mystery as we have hardly seen any reports to suggest anything. Currently, the best way to tell what the company's next GPUs will cost is to look back on how it costs its previous parts.
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 64: $ 499 or £ 549 (approx. AU $ 630)
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 56: $ 399 (approx. £ 305, AU $ 505)  regular MO and its mission to earn subordinate players, you can bet that it will produce affordable graphics cards instead of the most powerful parts at extremely expensive prices.
In December 2018, we heard a report by an AMD Radeon RX 3080 that can match GeForce RTX 2070 at half price.
In fact, portable references have already shown "Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx" integrated graphics appearing with Ryzen 3000 APUs, so it's probably just a matter of time. Even the expected Xbox Scarlet Cloud could see Vega II embedded in its APU.
