AMD RX Vega 64 Price Has Surged At Launch, Affecting All GPUs In The Lineup
AMD RX Vega 64 is the flagship GPU from AMD and after the launch yesterday the MSRP of $499 for the black reference design model has been disregarded and the price surge has been incredible with AMD RX Vega 64 price going as high as £599. At some retailers, the AMD RX Vega 64 price is £550 but that is still higher than the original MSRP.
Checking the AMD RX Vega 64 price with multiple retailers in the UK, we found that the AMD RX Vega 64 price was actually higher than expected. A day after the official launch, Scan has the 8GB Sapphire RX Vega 64 price listed at £596.99. Overclockers UK has the 8GB Sapphire RX Vega 64 price listed at £548.99.
Similar is the case for Aria UK, where the same card is priced at £548.99. The lowest price that we have seen so far is at CCL Online, where the AMD RX Vega 64 price is listed at £535.30. What this tells us is that the price will depend on where you get the GPU. Assuming that you can get your hands on one in the first place.
We have got confirmation from multiple retailers that this price discrepancy is not only for the Vega 64 Black version but for the limited edition and liquid cooled versions as well. This also affects the Vega 56 GPUs. Keeping all this in mind, it is safe to assume that the custom versions that will be coming out later will be pretty expensive.
We know about the custom Asus version coming out. You can click here to learn about the upcoming custom design Vega GPU. It will be interesting to see how well the custom version performs as compared to the reference design model.
