Last year’s Capsaicin event featured the first glimpse of AMD’s upcoming Polaris graphics architecture, along with details on the AMD Radeon RX 400 series. This year didn't contain many, if any, major reveals.

AMD did showcase the AMD Vega architecture, but not specific graphics cards that will feature it. Instead, we learned that the actual products will be simply known as AMD Radeon RX Vega.

Key additional announcements included a partnership with Fallout maker Bethesda to better tailor its games to Vega and Ryzen hardware for several forthcoming games, as well as that Vega is now powering LiquidSky a third-party, cloud-streaming gaming service for PC gamers.
