We all knew Vega was coming, but it is a matter of when. Q2 should be the time if I remember rightly from what I was reading earlier.

is the 490 going to be big vega or xfire babies on a stick?
could it be the reason for the 1080 starting to go on offer under 500?
stay tuned till the next episode of, constant gpu releases, to find out

I thought the 500's later this year were the big cards and the 490 was the bottom end of the top end cards, if that makes sense?
