AMD to Unveil Polaris GPU During MTE Live Webcast on May 18th
AMD is all set to show off their next generation Polaris architecture during an “Meet the Experts” webcast next week. This won’t be fully open to the public, but those interested do need to register and be approved to attend the live session, which goes on for around 30 minutes on May 18th starting at 10 AM EST.
AMD’s Sr. Technology Manager at Radeon Technology Group David Nalasco will host the MTE webcast event. Nalasco will talk about the technology behind their next generation Pascal architecture, which according to AMD, is a massive leap in performance per watt.
Earlier rumors indicate that AMD will unveil both its Polaris 10 and Polaris 11 GPUs during an event that is taking place between May 26-29 in Macau. But the event will reportedly be closed which means the information shared there will be under embargo and won’t be available to the public until a few weeks.
Update: AMD has started sending out invitations for a major press event at Computex, probably on June 1st. At the event, the company is expected to launch its next generation Polaris 10 based Radeon 400-series graphics cards.
