Hardware.info reports that contrary to the previous story Gigabyte will launch custom RX Vega. The company is allegedly preparing few models. The source claims that custom Vega graphics cards will be available in stores late October.
According to Tom’s Hardware, Gigabyte has no plans for custom Radeon RX Vega 64. The company, however, does not rule out the possibility of custom RX Vega 56.
Since the introduction of AORUS brand Gigabyte has been slowly replacing all high-end models with better looking (and more expensive variants). Despite the fact that RX Vega architecture was released weeks ago, there seems to be no choice in custom variants whatsoever.
Earlier reports suggested that AMD has difficulty providing Vega chips to partners, which as a result is causing a delay for mass production and final evaluation of custom boards.
So far only ASUS has shown its custom STRIX Vega 64, which was already tested by reviewers. The competition believes that ASUS card was just a PR stunt with questionable value as it provides minimal improvements over the reference design.
Gigabyte and MSI are now focusing on upcoming GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards, which is expected late October.
