Get Ready For AMD's Livestream Tomorrow Night

AMD --
Mark your calendars for tomorrow to watch AMD's Computex livestream for Polaris.

There's only one day to go until more AMD Polaris details will be revealed in a videostream live from Computex in Taipei. If you haven't already done so, you can register here to be reminded of the stream on 31 May. More details via the streaming page.

The stream is scheduled to begin on 31 May at 10PM EST -- an inconvenient time at least for many in the US, due to the event taking place in Taiwan.

I'll certainly be watching the stream. As some of you may have heard already, this past weekend AMD held their press event for Polaris in Macau. This time I was invited (last time AMD sent me to one of these press launch events was for RV770...) but unfortunately had to respectfully decline given my constantly busy schedule with not taking a day off in years between Phoronix and PTS, etc. While AMD was going to pay for the flights/hotel, I also wasn't too motivated to fly ~20+ hours to China to listen to them talk about Windows gaming and other non-Linux material for three days. But I mention this as hopefully that means I'm on the list and will be able to provide launch-day Polaris 10 Linux coverage this time around. While that appears to be the case right now, even if that's not the case, I'll definitely be buying the available Polaris 10 GPUs for Linux testing and to compare to my mass assortment of other hardware. Between Polaris and the GTX 1070/1080 Linux testing (plus the Phoronix 12th birthday next week!), June should be a very interesting month.
