AMD: No Pricing Control On Vega
Gamers Nexus reports that AMD said they can not control Vega pricing. This pricing issue continues to spin out of hand. Technically re-sellers can price it for whatever they want unless AMD plans to strictly control them and risk alienating Newegg and Amazon.
“Radeon RX Vega64 demand continues to exceed expectations. AMD is working closely with its partners to address this demand. Our initial launch quantities included standalone Radeon RX Vega64 at SEP of $499, Radeon RX Vega64 Black Packs at SEP of $599, and Radeon RX Vega64 Aqua Packs at SEP of $699. We are working with our partners to restock all SKUs of Radeon RX Vega64 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.”
