News coming from Swedish hardware site Nordichardware who claim to have seen retailer price list. AMD is all set to launch consumer model RX VEGA on 30th July at Siggarph. In previous leak scores we’ve seen its giving GTX 1080 level Performance. NordicHardware has obtained preliminary pricing information from Swedish distributors where the Radeon RX Vega price tag lands around 7,000 SEK excluding VAT. Thats probably 850$ . This the purchase price of retailers with VAT and can be changed at any minute, take with a grain of salt and we’re not sure for which Vega they were talking about.
They might have high manufacturing costs, But its not fair to charge extra for 350$ for 500$ GTX 1080 performance. Custom cards will cost more but there are no custom cards at launch. We’re not sure if this 850$ GPU comes with blower design or water solution. Stay tuned.
