A heads up to all waiting to buy Vega graphics cards. Today Radeon RX Vega 56 sales will begin. This is your chance to buy Vega at a normal price till rebates are over.
AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
We do not expect RX Vega cards to get cheaper until AIBs start offering their custom designs. Many shops are currently out of stock of any ‘standalone’ Vega cards, but they estimate that the shipment will start mid to late September. Today the embargo on RX Vega 56 sales will lift and all stock that was carefully prepared for this launch will likely disappear very fast.
Unlike the full-fat RX Vega 64, the Radeon RX Vega 56 has generally received positive reviews. Yes, it may consume more power and has noisier cooler than GTX 1070, but if there’s a Vega to get, it’s probably 56, especially if you own a FreeSync monitor.
The SEP (suggested e-tail price) of Vega is 399 USD. Look for standalone packages (without games) to make sure you are buying the card for the lowest possible price.
