AMD confirms E3 launch for next-gen graphics card

AMD has confirmed that its next-gen graphics card will be unveiled at E3 on the 16th June.

The new GPU, codenamed Fury, is expected to be a significant upgrade over the company’s current lineup and will be the first to use AMD’s new HBM memory architecture which stacks the GPU’s memory onto the GPU die.

Matt Skynner, AMD’s head of graphics confirmed the date during AMD’s Computex press conference where it launched its latest generation of A-Series APU chips for laptops and all-in-one PCs.

Following the announcement, AMD CEO, Lisa Su, took to the stage to give a glimpse at what may well prove to be the upcoming chip, holding aloft what she called the first graphics processor to feature the company’s new HBM memory system.

Much speculation surrounded exactly what both AMD and Nvidia would launch around Computex, with some expecting AMD’s new GPU to launch here with Nvidia then expected to spoil the party by launching its latest GTX 980 Ti card.

In the end, Nvidia did indeed launch the GTX 980 Ti, which has proved to be a blisteringly fast chip, so it’s now a short wait for E3 to see just what AMD’s new card will be capable of.
