AMD Announces Capsaicin GDC 2016 Event – Will Preview Polaris – Crytek, HTC & Oculus To Be Present

AMD today announced that it will webcast live from Ruby Skye during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. This press event, entitled “Capsaicin,” will be hosted by Radeon Technologies Group’s Senior Vice President and Chief Architect Raja Koduri on Monday, March 14 at 4:00 PM PT (6:00 PM CT/7:00 PM ET), and showcase AMD’s world-class hardware, software and gaming partners.

As the press release reads:

“Named after the compound that delivers a pepper’s spicy kick, “Capsaicin” will explore the inner essence of the graphics processing unit (GPU) and how it powers innovations in gaming and virtual reality. The webcast will feature an inside look at the latest technological advancements affecting the enthusiast and developer communities as they approach the burgeoning virtual reality market.”

The really interesting thing here is that AMD will showcase Polaris for the first time. After all, the press release claims that AMD will previews its new silicon, therefore we can’t wait to see what the red team has in store for us. And then there is this, so we can safely assume that Polaris will be previewed.

For those interested, a real-time video webcast of the event will be accessible on AMD’s Investor Relations home page. A replay of the webcast can be accessed a few hours after the conclusion of the live event and will be available for one year after the event. A replay of the webcast will be accessible on the AMD YouTube channel.

Stay tuned for more everyone!
