    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.

    Yes rumour is Q2 for slower HBM2 Vega 10 (Normal 1080 competitor), with faster HBM2 version coming later Q3/Q4 (1080 Ti competitor).

    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?
