So the price has gone from £450 to £550 already????
I'm in work and haven't had chance to read the the thread
If wonder if Vega 56 is giong to be the same deal as today. Starts at £450, 30 mins in will be £550 The Vega 64 by that time will be £600+...
Prices seem detached completely from reality. I can only congratulate AMD for selling out, but I sure as heck can't explain it
The freesync monitors are the only thing that make AMD tempting in any way. Just a shame they have nothing that can power the 4K offerings.
Within 30 mins of first sale, actually.
No, £450 was just for the launch, as per Gibbo.
The main reason for the price is the limited stock. Thats really not on Ocuk just AMD doesnt make enough cards. I guess it'll work out after a while of waiting and they'll be more choice of coolers so theres benefits to not buying launch also. Also you could blame Nvidia for not just allowing Freesync which is open to any maker. Maybe they are afraid of running out of cards themselves so stick to their license fee setup etc
An easyJet launch. Limited stock, then the price shoots up.
So £100 more than a 1080 for about the same performance but with higher power requirements? Literally be daft to not just get the 1080 lol. No use saving gsync tax on a monitor only to pay it back on the card
OcUK might be looking at more than a few cards being returned...
Seems more than a few miners bought on impulse before reading reviews, and will simply return them if they can't get more than 30 mh/s.
I'm sorry but the more I think about it it's clearer and clearer. As much as retailers are trying to claim they don't like miners and want gamers to buy cards. One thing is clear.
Vega 64 is currently priced for miners and is being bought by miners. why on earth else would someone pay £100 more than a 1080 on this power hungry card?
Facts be facts.
Can't help but think this will come back to bite them as folk move to consoles.
AMD set the pricing, we had set allocation to sell at £450, the launch price of $499 as a stand alone card! Once sold out AMD would not support further and as such price had to be £549 with the games, regular price of $599
I've expressed my opinions to AMD and hope they will consider bringing the card back and support £449 unlimited, because whether or not you think they are worth £449, it seems 100's if not 1000's of customers think £449 is a good value price and want to buy, but of course £549 the sales are slowed, though still selling.
I personally would rather sell them at £449, sell thousands is better than selling a few hundred at £549.
Once all the miners have figured out they're **** for mining, then I expect your returns people to be a tad busy Gibbo.
Ah gotta love review sites that quote one of my post out of context with later replies from me. More fool the idiots who read press sites and believe what they say, when they select just the snippets they want to select. I said an AIB has rumoured 70-100 hash rate, not confirmed. Funny how the press made it look like 70-100 was dead cert. People who read all my replies here would no that to be rumour but as always certain sites post up just parts of my replies here and take as gospel.
Thankfully we sold in single units but will be interesting to hear if our RMA team get calls from miners trying to return.
i dont get how 499usd msrp turns into 550gbp, a straight conversion of usd to gbp is about 380gbp, with taxes and imports your looking around 460gbp.... where is the 550 coming from?
gibbo said they msrp is 599usd but i dont see that anywhere, the "pack" bundle is 599usd but the card on its own is 499usd on newegg and with amd slides its also 499usd
i can pick any item on here and compare it to newegg and not have such a difference in pricing after conversions and taxes....
the salt inside me in bursting out in my skin i had to take 2 showers already.......
wonder if the retunred ones will show up at £449, doubt it :-D
Shall be interesting, we shall watch, I'd be amazed though if miners were buying them when orders are like single digits.
You knew what you were doing... lol
450 is the reasonable price tbh. when compared to 1080
