Nice :) just got rx 56 for $449. Gonna bios flash it to an Vega 64 nd have fun overclocking it. :D
" Estimated ship date is Oct 16, 2017 PT. " and the drop still not started yet... interesting...
Wait what did the price here went for? Judging by the comments I guess it was over MSRP?

Going for $449-$469 currently on newegg. Rx vega 56

That’s much lower than it was just a couple of weeks ago. I’d still get a 1070 instead Massdrop had a gigabyte 1070 for $399.
Wtf? $749.99?!?! What is this a listing for a Jesus shaped corn flake on Ebay?!
LoftySmalls
Is it still available on your profile?

No, I read other people's comments hoping it was listed at MSRP. :T
Thank you for taking this drop down Massdrop. Wise choice.
Also, the ASUS Strix Vega will be out, in about a month, with WAY better cooling, and likely about the same price. I'll pass...

Plus, let's face it, reference cards are ugly AF. lol
My other point was that it's going to be overpriced just like all the other RX 64s.
When Massdrop first came around, it had some actual deals, but now it's just a site to buy things for Newegg prices, except here, you pay sales tax. Not to mention, anyone ever try to RMA anything with Massdrop? I can't imagine that's a very pleasant experience... Who buys this $h!+, from here, anymore? Do you ppl not use Google?

You can get ass raped at this price any day of the week from Newegg. Massdrop needs 20 people before they feel it's worth their time to lube up.

Well said 😂😂😂
For the people complaining about the MSRP, this card isnt being sold by AMD, its from SAPPHIRE.. And last I checked on amazon and newegg the price for the vega64 was not $499... Just checked newegg and there was one for $649 by XFX... dunno how reputable they are.. Second cheapest two are $679 by Powercolor and SAPPHIRE..
MSRP means jack squat with graphics cards, when they released the 1070 they said it'd have an MSRP of like 379 right? well actually im quite surprised I found one even for $410. but its been a year and a half from launch. At launch the card was way above the MSRP... If anyone can get a vega64 for $499 ill be surprised.

What if 1080’s or 1070’s drop in price?
Bobert
nooo... i already get a CF791... so thatz why
ohh massdrop. this is a drop of your credibility in the deals dept. nothing more. you are a fool if you buy this.
Honestly this is a giant disappointment, massdrop is hopping on the price raping train. I'm absolutely disgusted. Msrp officially now is 599, not 750. This drop is nothing but a lie. Please take this down .

I checked the MSRP at launch for the 1080 and it was $599 the MSRP for the RX 64 is $499. AMD verified the MSRP didn’t change.
Tangent? How is advertising a price so low AMD had to pay resellers to sell the cards at that price and keeping that bit of information a secret from reviewers and consumers not shady?
Ill say it again AMD could sell their cards directly to consumers just like NVIDIA does, but that wouldn’t let AMD blame anyone else for the high prices. What does my history with Massdrop have to do with anything? I did get the 1080 ti drop @ $675 which is $25 below MSRP.
What evidence do you have that anyone on this forum is being paid by NVIDIA? Do you have any at all? Being critical of a company is a consumer’s right. If they advertised a more accurate price there would only be performance to criticize.
You have no clue what msrp is. Sapphire isn't the manufacturer, they cannot adjust price suggested.
This is comparable to the GTX 1080 which is $500.
Massdrop, the msrp is literally 499 what a joke
Jacob101
Sweet. Please link me to one so I can buy it at that price.
hahahahaha for this price?? no fucking way...
The price is way too high....
I'll wait untill there are better aftermarket cards, with like dual and triple fan designs, you know?... Also, here in europe we can get the limited edition even cheaper than this 'discount' price... Sorry, but this looks like a very bad drop.
nomadewolf
Coming mid-October.
Uhh, isn't the MSRP on this card 499$

Actually the 7970 beat the 680 at the base clock speed after six months because of driver updates. It held the crown until the 780, then never regained it. The 290x's success was entirely a result of cryptocurrency mining. This card can sell above MSRP because one can still make money mining at the increased price tag. This is also why everyone is selling 480's and 580's for way above their $200 MSRP.

https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/HD_7970_X_Turbo/28.html They trade, 680 wins more than loses.
I owned a 7970, I'm very familiar with it, and I owned a card from every gen of ATi before that, then skipped everything until Polaris. Was looking forward to getting a vega 64 until this bullshit with the packs. I don't care about mining as there are easier ways to make money so when I see it priced the same as a 1080ti of course I am going criticize their decision/logic or lack thereof.
At this price I might as well get a 1080Ti. I'm not trying to run an economic simulation nor am I trying to make an A.I. so what's the point.

Ok, so you've paid a 150USD premium on the card and you want to earn back 150USD by mining etherium. The Vega 64 has a hash rate of about 34.4Mhash/s, which means it will take you about 3.5 months to mine 150USD of etherium. That means 3.5 months (about 2540 hours) of your computer, running at 100% CPU and GPU load. Why do people think mining is some sort of magical way to make fast and easy money?

MSRP of this card is $499. Don't buy this.

That is how supply and demand work. Supply low - prices go up. Supply high - prices go down. When they supply is about the same as demand then the prices level out.  Also, why would AMD not build a better driver for their card to help miners? Yes, the card is "designed for gaming" (actually its designed for parallel computing which gaming takes advantage of) but taking advantage of a HUGE spike in sales due to crypto currency mining is smart. When mining takes a nose dive (and it will) AMD will still have the gamers to fall back on.
This is all basic marketing, while I don't have a mastery of the subject, the few classes I have taken (15 years ago) on economics and marketing pretty much spell this out. MSRP is SUGGESTED, no one has to follow it. If the price is to high for you, don't buy. If you think its a good deal, buy it. I don't tell anyone how to buy, and I don't tell other people what are good "deals." 
You aren't informing anyone, you aren't opening anyone's eyes, you are being dicks. I

Once again, if you see it at a lower price somewhere else, cite your findings.
I won't be able to afford a new card for a while, but I do know one thing... I'm sticking with AMD. My 980ti gives me weird image rendering glitches and the fans never spin, not even a simple "twitch" on power up, not even when maxing game settings and playing games at 6016x1080 (I know, it's an odd resolution... basically windowed across a pair of 2048x1152 displays and one standard HD display). Probably have to RMA it or something.
I want to get one of these cards, but it simply won't happen till tax refund time. Even then, I'm not sure. Depending on what the story is... So I just wait for the next iteration, seeing as how this came up slightly short on the hoped power? I dunno...
Regardless, I'll wait till retailers get their stuff sorted out, and the crypto people lay up on nuking the supply... Get a freakin' ASIC, I wanna game!
richfiles
Well if the fans don’t spin and it’s giving you rendering glitches it’s probably overheating?
You can’t have some loyalty made just because you got one card with a broken fan controller.. I’ll have you know the same things happen to AMD cards lol.
Pleased rename the site to "Mass Gouging".

Really funny "Drop"... here in Europe you can get the RX 64 for 499€ / 509€ every 2nd day on offers... I feel with you guys on the other side of the big sea... at least you get the tech produkts cheaper in 90% of the other time :D
2euro
Are there no miners in Europe? That would only make sense if electricity were dramatically more expensive.
SkipPp
There are miners... the rx 4xx and 5xx are still extremely expensive... but rx 64 every day 509€, with bundle (got the two free games)... RX 56 not so much... so i chose the 64 and put on the raijintek morpheus II... works nice (dont even need the frontplate) ... undervolted a bit and never hit 60°C I hope the situation will change to the best for you guys
I have two already. They are good cards, but only at MSRP, for most users. I use the compute performance and I do not game. However I may seeing that I have two free games. In compute performance they actually out perform the 1080 Ti which is why I was going for them. That said, what I paid opening day, if I didn't already have waterblocks for them I would have bought 1080 Ti. It was down to $20 - $40 dollars. If Rx Vega 64 would had been $20 more I would have 1080 Tis.
Pricing is not AMD's fault. Don't buy until pricing comes down because they are in stock everywhere now. I am not an AMD fan but spread my money around because we need competition.

Right, it’s $50 over msrp. When the founders edition was $700, the msrp of the 1080 was only $600
shabbaranks
I looked up the prices and the MSRP for the 1080 was $599 at $549 it’s $51 under MSRP.
How does this card compare to the recent drop for the MSI 1080Ti Duke?

For gaming the Duke would blow it away. I saw that drop in the morning and was going to buy after work, but it was sold out by then. The Duke was a real deal at $679, unlike this one. And you only get a one year warranty with this Sapphire.

As an AMD fanboy, i'd still get the nvidia card. It's not that this card is bad... but the nvidia is better. You're talking about a Vega 56 it's not so straightforward. And would it be an RX 580, i'd say AMD in a heartbeat. The very high end i have to concede to nvidia.
Not sure if serious...
Isn’t this barely better than 1080? And isn’t the msrp lower?
As many of you mentioned, most buying this card at this price point are not gamers but crypto miners. But why the heck would a miner buy a card from Massdrop? Especially at pretty much normal pricing. You're not going to have the card for almost a whole month if you buy it here. That's a lot of time wasted as a miner when you've already spent lots of money. Also, you don't have the generous returns policies of typical retailers, though it looks like it at least has a Saphire warranty included, probably because it doesn't look like Massdrop would be considered gray-market with this item since it's not really at wholesale prices. Definitely doesn't make sense for gamers, but also doesn't really for miners either.
LesterL
Good luck on your warranty claim. FYI, you may get no warranty through Sapphire. That is, their warranty is tied to the warranty terms offered by their authorized retailers, which Massdrop may or may not be one of.
Shame on you Massdrop! I will never purchase anything with you again. $499.00 is supposed to MSRP
LOL, yeah... no.
