AMD RX Vega 64 Price Tag Of $499 Was Just A Launch Gimmick
AMD RX Vega 64 has been revealed and reviewed and there has been a lot of confusion regarding the AMD RX Vega 64 price tag. Some retailers have confirmed that the AMD RX Vega 64 price is higher than the MSRP and that seems to be true. It seems that the $499 AMD RX Vega 64 price tag was just a launch gimmick.
Now that the AMD RX Vega 64 is out the MSRP will be increased by $100. The AMD RX Vega 64 price will not be $599 for the air cooled version and $699 for the liquid cooled version. You can consider the original MSRP as a marketing gimmick or an early adopter discount. Call it whatever you want, it is very shady.
According to the report, the AMD RX Vega price will also be different for the AMD Vega 54 model and not only the 64 model. According to OC UK’s Gibbo:
Now the good and bad news, the good news is AMD are rebating early launch sales to allow us to hit £449.99 on the stand alone [RX Vega 64] black card which has no games. This is a launch only price which AMD at present are saying will be withdrawn in the near future, when if it happens is unknown, but remember do not be shocked if the price jumps nearly £100 in a few days.
Now that this information regarding the AMD RX Vega 64 price has come to light, this makes sense. It also confirms the rumors that came to us from multiple sources. the price of the AMD Vega GPUs will indeed be different as compared to the original MSRP.
We’ve also made some bundles as well, these bundles feature NO DISCOUNT, what you get is two AAA titles known as Prey and yet to be released Wolfenstein II PC games, worth a solid £50 between them. Well I lie, they include the Black Card which has £100 discount up front, so by buying the bundles you get the black card at the launch discounted price, but also score the two free games. This is also same case for the Samsung & VEGA monitor bundle, it includes the black pre-discounted card, but also scores you the two free games.
Let us know what you think about the RX Vega 64 price tag and whether or not you are interested in buying this GPU now that it is more expensive.
