Wtf is Vega anyways? AMD's version of a Titan or something? 

It's their code name for their next gen architecture. It's more akin to the names of Intel CPUs like Sandy Bridge, Kaby Lake, etc.

It's the name for the architecture. nVidia does the same. The 9xx series was Maxwell, the current 10xx series is Pascal.

Not just a code name anymore. I thought Fury was supposed to be their "Titan" (albeit without the performance), but now I guess it's whatever they want at the time. It's way less straightforward than just numbers. You might as well go back to the "XT, SE, XL, LE, GS" suffix confusion of yesteryear.

I'd rather they had just gone with RX 500 series. . . .

 

Well, about that....

 

https://www.pcper.com/news/Graphics-Cards/Report-AMD-Launch-Radeon-RX-500-Series-GPUs-April

 

According to a report from VideoCardz.com we can expect AMD Radeon RX 500-series graphics cards next month, with an April 4th launch of the RX 580 and RX 570, and subsequent RX 560/550 launch on April 11. The bad news? According to the report "all cards, except RX 550, are most likely rebranded from Radeon RX 400 series".

 

:sick:

Man I hate re-brands, simply because even if performance of a new chip is the same as the previous incarnation it is ALWAYS nice to have a new feature set of video decoding, HDMI, or whatever so that every chip in a generation is at least capable of the same things.

Another rumor states that the new rebranded AMD cards will be called MX 580 and they will only support DX7.

So... Not a Titan, then. :P
