The official MSRP for the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 GPU is $499 while the Limited Edition is supposed to cost $599.

You can expect some retailers to sell the GPUs at MSRP so that AMD can say that they were sold at MSRP. Until there is official word from AMD it is hard to say why the company is pulling off something like this. It could be due to the mining craze or some other reason.
