    Wow, this is one hell of a chunky card, looks more like building material than a GPU! Will be interesting to see if it can keep temperatures of the 64 in line!

    Check GN.
    Hope they actually solved the issue with HBM2 not making proper contact with the heatsink as they promised.

    I don't care which 3rd party one it is, just procreating sell them in stores for non-insane prices already. Powercolor is the brand I trust the least when it comes to AMD partners and I'd even buy this triple slot abomination which doesn't make contact with the HBM if it was reasonably available.

    GN said Powercolor "fixed" the issue by slopping on more thermal paste. Great solution /s. Would it kill them to mill the heatsink block slightly less on the HBM side for the recessed chips?

    I hope Ethereum crashes horribly and everyone who invested in it gets screwed. The entire cryptocurrency phenomenon is BS mostly pushed by criminal organizations for their own convenience.

    Considering Ethereum seems ASIC resistant, I think we're the ones who are screwed.

    It's supposed to ship with an extra, higher voltage bios.
    which is good so long as you override the power limits, 1800mhz @600 watts here we come ! :D

    Well that hella quick. :p
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/7hq1y6/powercolor_devil_vega_64_sold_out_on_newegg_in_45/

    Stock was probably not all that big but to sell out in ~1 minute is pretty impressive even so.

    EDIT: From some later replies it seems Germany had one store with 40 units total, also the only store that had these.

    Stock must be pretty limited for Vega still I'm guessing.
    (All of Germany and 40 GPU's yeah no wonder these are probably going to be hard to find.)
