The announcement comes mere hours before AMD’s ve.ga site and expected architecture reveal goes online. We’ll have to wait and see, but the prospect of seeing a rebirth of sorts for the company with both a new CPU line (Ryzen), a new, up-to-date platform (AM4) and a new, high-performance graphics architecture (Vega) has all the ingredients for a hype train lunging full-steam ahead.
