DigiTimes have heard about Intel's plans to reveal their next hardware devoted to AI functionality at Computex.  Lake Crest is their deep learning hardware to support a new generation of neural network based computing and Knights Crest is the result of Intel's $350m purchase of the deep learning company Nervana which will be based on the familiar Xeon and Xeon Phi families of processor. 

Jen-Hsun Huang, will deliver a keynote about NVIDIA's current AI projects along with their advancements in autonomous driving and deep learning, but we have not heard any juicy rumours about hardware announcements yet.  Love him or hate him, Jen-Hsun's keynotes are never a waste of time to listen to.

I really like nvidia, they have a tremendous R&D team and really competent sale and management.
But I want them to have some competition to keep price in check and keep them at their peak.

This is why I'm waiting for Vega.

But I have a feeling that Vega will be in short supply, if only because of its packed math engine and the crypto rush we are seeing. Vega might be a miners dream, and they will buy the entire production as they make a profit from the device.
