DigiTimes heard some more rumors about the launch dates of the next-gen GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA.

It seems the AMD Polaris architecture will be revealed in June at the earliest for release in Q3 2016. Polaris will be made on a 14nm FinFET process and is the fourth-generation GCN architecture. It will support HDMI 2.0a and DisplayPort 1.3.

NVIDIA's Pascal architecture will likely be showcased at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in April. An announcement of the GeForce GTX 1080/1070 (or whatever they're called) GPUs is anticipated in June with an official release in Q3 2016. Mainstream Pascal-based cards are expected to follow in Q4 2016.
