AMD’s Radeon RX Vega is upon us, and some stock is already trickling into the country. There are some Vega 64 cards available through a few retailers, and stock is expected to start ramping up in September-October as AMD increases production to meet – in the company’s own words – “unprecedented demand.”
Miners are a part of that demand, of course, but I don’t think it’ll be much of a problem locally for Vega 64 or 56. AMD fans should be able to get their hands on a card without much fuss soon. I have some price comparisons after the jump, and a little bit of history using old editions of the System Builder’s Guide.
EDIT: An earlier version of this article incorrectly attributed some statements to a local AMD sales representative. These have been corrected.
