Got a sapphire one from NE and one from AMD.. yay
Looks to sit between the RTX 2070 and the RTX 2080/GTX 1080 Ti. Closer to the 2080 than the 2070 though.
And the VEGA 56 RED Dragon is $329. Deci$ions$, Deci$ion$
It'll be interesting to see what happens after today. I think AMD was leading us to believe that they'd have stock to go around. Judging by the difficulties people are having ordering, that seems not to be the case.
We'll have to see if that's just a launch day thing or not.
I hope amd dotn run out, Wellsfargo is having problem, not letting people use there cards to buy things, if they cost me get this card, they will lose customer. time run out and get prepaid card -.-
Just use paypal dude. You'll never have a problem like that again.
AMD.com still has them. NE dribbled them out..Do you have any ideas how many of these are heading to Ebay as we speak?
How much are you going to sell the 64 for?
This is annoying as hell. AMD stated that there would be plenty in stock with them and their launch partners.
You will have to PM, i do not want to get in trouble here.
AMD.com is a little "Cheaper" than Newegg. Shipping is Free (Newegg charges $7) and AMD's shipping is faster (Fedex ground) than Newegg's (Fedex Smartpost).
Yes...I think pretty much everyone in this thread who got one other than myself is planning on ebaying them.
My comment was referring to the rumors that only 5000 cards would be available and once they're gone AMD wasn't going to make any more.
If the XFX Radeon VII actually goes up for sale for $599 on Newegg then I'll try to snag one for a second build.
EDIT: Price was changed to $699. RIP.
Horseshit on ebay.
Link to buy directly from AMD:
I hope Amd.com dont run out! Wellsfargo says all there banks cant give money no credit cards are working,
On second thoughts, not really.
with its huge bandwidth and massive memory, I expected it to beat the 2080 at 4k, but in all reviews I've seen it looses more that it wins. Heck it even looses to the 2070 in some games.
Plus its loud as hell and eats more watts than the RTX2080Ti
Still, if you really want AMD, I guess this is the card to get.
Already feeling like a disappointing launch:
* Same price as a RTX 2080, slower average perf vs. RTX 2080
* Loud AF according to multiple websites
* Massively unstable press drivers and crappy to no OC-ability so far
Performance was what I expected, but it is all over the place. On average its slower than the RTX 2080/GTX 1080 Ti, but it has quite a few random outliers where it outperforms the 2080 and others where it is equal to a RTX 2070. I find that odd. The very loud fans under load is disappointing though.
Yeah, now that reviews are out, I don't see why anyone would buy one of these. NVIDIA can use "RTX tax" as an excuse for their higher prices on the RTX line, but AMD is gonna need a price cut pronto.
And significantly higher peak power draw as well, so you'll need a beefier power supply. Yay.
Yeah, R7 reviews are disappointing. On GPUs alone 2019 is starting out to be a cruddy time for PC gaming. I'm hoping things will sort itself out next year when Intel joins the game and AMD gets back in it.
I wonder how long until they release one with less memory at a significant price cut.
I'm guessing when Navi releases later in the year.
The only benchmark I've seen where the Vega VII kills everything else is Luxmark. I mean because everyone uses luxmark for like, you know... eeer, hmmm...
well.. newegg fucked up and the 599.99 came back in stock and was able to procure the xfx version at that price.... now I see its out of stock and back at 699.99... sucks now I have a saphhire version AND the one from AMD coming now.. I can't cancel either now.. lol..
Well played AMD, way to go. I think I am just going to order a pair of 2080's and call it a day.
Sigh, yet another AMD launch with broken drivers,broken overclock, weird performance issues, and high noise.
When did it go up for $599? I had the page auto refreshing every 5 seconds and I never saw it go up for that price.
It also runs hotter & has a much higher power draw as well. I think most of us knew this was going to be the case although I did figure that it wasn't going to be a good GPU for overclocking. We'll see how the card shapes up once the drivers mature but I wouldn't bother purchasing the product myself. By the time the drivers are where they need to be, Navi will be just around the corner.
Well, damn. Still not sure how it never showed up as live at that price on my end.
Congrats though, $599 is a solid price for the R7!
der8auer Radeon VII extreme overclocking attempt
TL,DW: everything is broken.
Also this from Guru3D says it all.
Kinda disappointing. I'd buy it if it were cheaper or if the gaming numbers weren't so erratic but I imagine it will sell out before a price drop or driver improvements happen. I guess I will wait for the RTX cards to drop in price or for high end Navi in 2020.... That sounds so far away though.
I was hovering around purchasing one, but the noise levels scared me off.
Agreed, a bit disappointed myself. TBH, I would've preferred a RX 590-style refresh to the Vega64 using the new 7nm process at an affordable price.
After reading the reviews, I am glad I didn't order the new cards. I ended up purchasing two 2080's and an NVLink bridge for the same amount that two AMD R7's would of cost. (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814487415)
I have fresync/vvr tv with my xbox one x and want pick this up, life changed plans for me, have switch banks, not dealing with bank who dont inform customers of down system for bank/credit account's and dumped 30k in bank.
Yeah, that’s unforunate. Sucks Navi is also on GCN. It was originally thought to be a new arch... years ago...
,I came across this interesting tidbit:
Low mounting pressure-> high temps might explain why so many outlets are seeing high noise/fans ramping super high.
Since AMD is apparently allowing third parties to develop their own Radeon VIIs I'd suggest holding off for one of those. These seem to be running hot and loud, and hopefully all the driver related issues will be resolved by then.
