While we were not really impressed by last year's Capsaicin event, it seems AMD is planning to make this an annual event as the company just announced it will be hosting a new Capsaicin event within two weeks. It's scheduled for February 28th at GDC 2017 and it will be livestreamed between 10.30am and 11.30pm PST.
AMD promises it will showcase new graphics card technology and virtual reality technology during the one-hour show. Maybe the company will hype up Vega some more but I wouldn't expect a lot of specifics as the launch of Vega is still quite some time away from us. Although this event seems more graphics related, perhaps they'll use it to launch Zen.
GDC is where developers not only shine, but share how they create everyday gaming magic from raw code, technology, and imagination. On February 28th, we’re beginning the day with our always-spicy Capsaicin livestream, but fiery feasts are best experienced when accompanied by something cool and creamy to satisfy the palette.
This year at GDC, join us on the 28th for our Capsaicin livestream and our Cream developer sessions - insightful and inspiring talks focused on rendering ideas and new paths forward, driven by game industry gurus from multiple companies including Epic and Unity.
The Capsaicin livestream kicks off at 10:30 AM from Ruby Skye, a feature-packed show highlighting the hottest new graphics and VR technologies propelling the games industry forward. The Cream Developer Sessions will start shortly after at 2:30 PM, with a special talk featuring Unity and Epic.
