So it is true. The 499,- price is a placebo and you might as well play the lottery instead of trying to find a standalone Vega. I just read that mindfactory, one of the biggest retailers in Germany, had 60 cards that were not bundled up with stuff.

Effectively 499,- is a lie.
Thanks AMD.


#543

GN mentions that HBM is really expensive right now. Is this tied to the NAND shortage at all. Or is it different?


#544

One would think it’s connected to the DRAM fabs, not NAND.


#545

Ah, ok. I didn’t know the difference between DRAM, VRAM, and solid state storage. Or if they were tied to one another.


#546

Agreed.

So more stock coming at $635 CAD ($499 USD)? Why are prices creeping up then? They opened here at $839 CAD which is $75 CAD more than game pack MSRP of $759 CAD. Now the MSI version is $909 CAD?


#547

Because AMD can’t control retailers or board partners?


#548

And because people are still buying them at the higher prices anyway.


#549

I get that AMD can’t control retailers and people are still buying them.

Here is the thing. At launch, especial newegg , of any product they follow MSRP. Gouging due to supply and demand comes after. Never at launch.


#550

I didnt see that when pascal came out but I might not have been paying close enough attention.


#551

That settles it.

These cunts can fuck off and die.


#552

I didn’t go for Pascal, so I did not notice either. But Threadripper launched at MSRP, and now is $50 more. ROG Zenith was MSRP and even though sold out at launch, is back in stock at MSRP.


#553

TR 1920X is still MSRP in the states, although yes it appears that the 1950X is $30 up, but Amazon still has it at MSRP but OOS. I don’t know if anyone was expecting how popular an expensive HEDT CPU was going to be at a reasonable price.

My RX Vega 64 arrived today.

Newegg is trying to screw me out of the two games, online with them now… bastards.

I don’t own any games and haven’t played games in years, but I was going to give them a try. Seeing that I had to pay a premium for the package I better damn well get them.

Update: they said my purchase did not come with the games, even though the avert clearly shows it does. Had game code by email in 10 minutes after I told them I would ship everything back. Threadripper, Asus Zenith, 960 Pros, 64GB memory and so on… including the RX Vega 64. Also closing my account.


#555

I feel like Newegg has been getting worse over the last year or so. They used to be golden but if Amazon steps up their custom searches for PC hardware I sure won’t look back.


#556

don’t close it, you might need them for warranty :stuck_out_tongue: but yeah, they’re like that towards a lot of customers, these days.


#557

I do use Amazon, but Amazon in Canada did not do Threadripper preorders …


#558

Moot point. Sapphire will not warranty the card once I remove the cooling solution for a waterblock.

Does anybody know if XFX will warraty? Tthat is my other card. Tried to get MSI but never even saw them available. They went on sale in the US for a few minutes before Canada so I think stock was depleted before available.

Any way you could get the full GPU for 11520x2160 cause that would look great on my surround.
