    [News] AMD Issues Official Statement on RX Vega 64 Pricing Woes

    https://www.techpowerup.com/236323/a...4-pricing-woes

    There has been somewhat of an uproar in recent times regarding AMD's lack of clarity on pricing of their newly-launched Vega 64. While AMD themselves told reviewers and consumers that their RX Vega graphics cards would be available for $399 (Vega 56) and $499 (Vega 64), recent events have, at the very least, cast some doubts on Vega's supposedly clean-cut pricing. Some popular reviewers and YouTubers have even gone so far as to say they won't be accepting any more samples from AMD due to a perceived slight at the erroneous information provided by the company; when someone reviews and analyses a product based on a fixed price-point advanced by a company, and then that pricing seems to have turned out nothing more than smoke and mirrors... People's work is put out the window.

    Now, AMD has come out to put rumors of false Vega pricing announcements to rest. Except the skeptic in me remains, well... skeptic. Here's what AMD has said: "Radeon RX Vega 64 demand continues to exceed expectations. AMD is working closely with its partners to address this demand. Our initial launch quantities included standalone Radeon RX Vega 64 at SEP of $499, Radeon RX Vega 64 Black Packs at SEP of $599, and Radeon RX Vega 64 Aqua Packs at SEP of $699. We are working with our partners to restock all SKUs of Radeon RX Vega 64 including the standalone cards and Gamer Packs over the next few weeks, and you should expect quantities of Vega to start arriving in the coming days."

    In other words they clarified nothing, and fact remains that there's no magic bundle with games, you pay for the games as well.
    And we have no idea on the ratio of the incoming batches of the $499 edition compared to the $599 edition.

    After a couple months, they finally fixed the tile-based rasterization (which was broken in the FE), and lo and behold: the cards are still bottlenecked by having only 64 rasterizers (binning or otherwise). Fiji v1.1 over here. And the other new features are still broken?
