The Radeon RX Vega is the name of AMD's next-generation graphics cards, which will take the fight to Nvidia, which has just announced the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

Few details have been leaked about Radeon RX Vega during the Game Developers Conference this year in which everyone has learned some of the key features of the next AMD GPU chipsets. And those specs are posing threats to rival NVIDIA's latest GTX 1080 Ti.

Rumors about RX 490 and RX 580 have been scraped off when AMD has announced  at GDC 2017 that the new Vega-based GPU chipsets will be named Vega 10 as the high-end model and Vega 11 for low-end card. As per the PC Advisor, the two Vega cards are set to give NVIDIA some competition not only in performance but in price point as well.

Currently as we don't know about the exact Specs of the AMD RX Vega, but AMD has revealed enough to whet gamers' appetites. As per the leaked slides, the Vega '10' (high-end model) will be featuring 14nm GFX9 GPU, 64 NCUs, 2048-bit memory bus, with 512GB/s bandwidth, PCIe Gen 3, 4096 stream processors, plus 16GB HBM2, x16 and 225W TDP.

To counter the powerful but impending AMD Radeon RX Vega, NVIDIA has reportedly boosting the performance of its latest GTX 1080 Ti Graphic Card. According to GameSpot, the company is confident enough to say that the new GTX 1080 Ti is 35 percent faster than its siblings.

As again AMD have revealed very few details about the RX Vega at the Game GDC 2017, it hasn't still said anything regarding its cost. Nvidia's GTX 1080 Ti is $700 that makes it the most expensive element in most PCs, as of now. And in reality, AMD can keep the prices either up or down.

According to WccFtech, for the release publication claims that AMD will be launching the cards at a special event during the month of May. However, it's possible but this would be the first time when AMD have ever released a graphics card at Computex.
