No, AMD did not just lower the price of the Radeon RX Vega 56


NVIDIA is expected to drop another Turing hammer on AMD with the imminent release of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, and this morning, AMD news would have lowered the price of its Radeon RX Vega 56 to $ 279 to overtake the GTX 1660 Ti.

Yeah well, that's not the case. The enthusiastic press was a little excited about the price as it was seen as a drop in the price of the RX Vega 56 to AMD at $ 279, but it was however Newegg who signed a "deadly contract" for the Radeon RX Vega 56. Newegg temporarily lowered the price of the Radeon RX Vega 56 to $ 279, and only $ 279 after a mail-in rebate. It's sold incredibly fast.

At the time of writing this article, I had checked on Amazon and could find the Radeon RX Vega 56 from $ 400 to $ 500, a price much higher than the tempting prospects of securing the card for only $ 250 after the MIR.

Nevertheless, none of this will matter once the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti arrives – and it's not far off at all.
