AMD just announced it will be hosting a press conference and a live webcast on June 1. The description says the firm will launch its 7th generation A-series APUs (aka Bristol Ridge) and provide an update about Polaris and other things.
A couple of weeks ago there were rumors that AMD planned a Polaris launch towards the end of this month but the fact that AMD explicitly describes this event as a "Polaris update" is very curious and seems to suggest that actual availability is further away than it previously promised. I really hope this isn't going to be another event where AMD will just tease Polaris a bit but it seems like a paperlaunch is the best-case scenario here.
There's not a lot of information to go on here, AMD previously promised Polaris would ship towards mid-2016 so if that's still valid the cards should ship in the coming weeks.
Event Will Feature Launch of 7th Generation AMD A-Series Processors, Polaris Updates and More
AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced it will hold a press conference and live webcast during Computex 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. The event will begin on Wednesday, June 1, 2016 at 10:00 AM CST / 10:00 PM EDT.
The event is slated to feature presentations from AMD executives including AMD President and CEO Lisa Su; Senior Vice President and General Manager, Computing and Graphics Business Group, Jim Anderson; and Senior Vice President and Chief Architect, Radeon Technologies Group, Raja Koduri.
A real-time video webcast of the event will be accessible on AMD's Computex page (www.amd.com/computex) and on AMD's Investor Relations home page (ir.amd.com). A replay of the webcast can be accessed a few hours after the conclusion of the live event on both pages and will be available there for one year after the event.
