WSJ seems to have scored an exclusive about AMD's upcoming Polaris video cards. The paper heard straight from AMD that the company's new Polaris-based video card will cost just $199, less than half the price comparable video cards are currently sold for:
“Less than 1% of PC users have systems that are capable of doing VR,” said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect of AMD’s Radeon technologies group. “The entry point is very, very high.”

AMD said its new Radeon RX cards, certified for use in VR by HTC and Oculus VR, deliver performance equivalent to that of $500 graphics cards used for VR.
It certainly seems like a very bold move as the very low pricing is definitely a shocker. The piece also confirms AMD is adopting a slightly different naming scheme. Under the previous naming scheme, the card would be launched as Radeon R9 480 but AMD decided to switch to Radeon RX 480.

Mathieu Heredia who is also the runner-up in the 2015 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2, was invited to give a speech on the collaboration.

“Every time I mod, I try to do something different from my other friends and modders. When I was invited to the Thermaltake’s CaseMOD competition, I completely rethought the Core X9. I wanted to build fully functional case with a unique design, and in the end I created Project The Tower. I was surprised when Thermaltake recognized the spirit of this project, and was even more shocked when they decided to mass produce it. Thank you Thermaltake for making my dreams come true. I hope that this design collaboration will be a great success!” expressed Mathieu Heredia.

Project The Tower and the Core Series have a similar product value, of creating a practical yet extraordinary chassis. Embracing the Casemod movement and Mathieu’s modding spirit, Thermaltake is determined to turn Project The Tower from a concept to a commodity where everyone can enjoy. This collaboration sets a new milestone for Thermaltake.

Commenting on the joint project, Kenny Lin, President and CEO of Thermaltake said, “At Thermaltake, we have positioned ourselves as a key player in the Casemod market. We are always on the lookout for modding enthusiasts whose spirit is consistent with our company values. It is a great honor for us to announce our strategic cooperation with Mathieu and Watermod France. We complement each other, and share the same values of Excellent Quality, Unique Design, Diverse Combinations and Boundless Creativity, to provide a high performance PC product for every enthusiast.”

Main Features of Project The Tower:

Integrated with the Design Ideas from Mathieu Heredia
Thermaltake modified the original design to create a balance between functionality and aesthetics. With slick lines in a streamlined style, Project The Tower has the kind of design that is most popular among current consumers. The original design features an open front design. To avoid dust collection issues, Thermaltake added a transparent acrylic panel to its front to create an aesthetically pleasing and dust-proof chassis. In addition, to ensure that the case is of both style and functionality, Thermaltake modified the design to offer ample space for cable management and system expansion.

Panoramic Viewing
Project The Tower has a highly unique appearance with its rare vertical arrangement and open frame design. Users are able to admire the entire liquid cooling system from either the front, left or right sides. In addition to fully displaying all the water cooling components, users can also exhibit their extraordinary taste.

Intel confirmed both Kaby Lake and Apollo Lake will ship later this year. As was revealed many months ago, Kaby Lake will be Intel's third architecture on the 14nm process. This chip breaks the tick-tock cycle as Intel needed something new to fill the longer gap between the 14nm and the 10nm process.

Apollo Lake on the other hand is a new Atom chip, it's intended for devices like entry-level tablets, value 2-in-1 laptops, etc. The new low-budget Atom chips should be capable of handling 4K video and will get support for USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3.

You can expect both in the second half of the year.
