*card , damn rubbish keyboards at work.
£550 now? These prices are disgusting.
I'll let you into a secret. If you stick to 1080p like me. GPUs are a bargain! (well, actually still obscene because of mining) I sold my 480 for £350 and paid £219 for my 1060. YOLO
Am I right in thinking Decent 1080's can be had from proper retailers around the £450 mark? Then who in their right mind is buying a Vega 64 (which trades blows) at £550?? Am I the only sane person left? Is it miners then?
why would anyone bother at them prices....
has to be the case, there is no way in hell there was enough excitement around vega that had 1000 people lined up with money today to sell them out
How do we get the game codes please?
Lets get one thing crystal clear here!
Launch MSRP $499, a $100 reduction for launch, regular MSRP of $599, check a site such as newegg for confirmation:
UK launch MSRP £449, a £100 reduction, yes we got a full £100 which worked favourably and much cheaper than you can buy one from US, remember US is excluding taxes. Now launch pricing is finished, so £549 which falls in line with $599 MSRP.
Which one did you buy?
Sure if you like 1080p at < 100 FPS. Like 40-55 FPS mostly.
Even for 100Hz 1080p the 480/1060 doesn't cut it. Heck even for guaranteed 60 FPS minimums the 480/1060 isn't enough, at 1080p.
isnt the msrp of the card 499usd? the 599 is bundle prices, the link you sent there shows them for 499usd. amd official slides also show them for 499usd msrp
If you know where to look it's easy to not pay tax on a lot of online purchases. I'm not saying its legal or ethical but its easy and common place.
Liquid cooled Sapphire, I just read your reply to someone else about them coming via e-mail so I'll keep an eye out for them, Cheers.
I've got a Gigabyte 1080 OC WF3 on order for just under £460 should be arriving in the next couple of days. AMD have lost another customer, can't remember the last time I had a NV card it was so long ago.
Sold out already! Glad i got mine for £450 and not waited.
Im confused. $499 = £550 now?
Man I thought the $1 to £1 was a raw deal.
EDIT: Just checked, yup, US retailers are typically selling for $499.
GPU prices are insane. At least they did a run of £450. Didn't have to, will all sell out at £550.
I do feel your pain though.
they are 499usd, its why they can sell them for 450gbp. its the first ive heard of a special 100 reduced launch price
wow my missus bagged me the Vega 64 well happy and good price as well, everywhere else was at least £100 more, nice one Gibbo happy camper now
The fact it was £100 cheaper than every other UK retailer for the first X sold and Gibbo said as much in the launch thread announcing them should have been a clue
