    Hey everyone. Are you able to find the Radeon VII in your regions for the launch price ($699). I can't find a single one. There are pre-built PCs with it but not any seperately.

    Cheers

    700 USD isn't happening here it seems, lowest store price from a check via online price comparison sites is 7890 SEK (Swedish Crowns.) which going by Google currency exchange it's 855 (854.94) USD and then for in-stock products the price is 8490 SEK or 919.95 USD going by lowest and still stocked.
    (Still a ways under the 2080Ti - 11000 to 13000 SEK - but a bit above the 2080 which sits around 7200 to 7800 SEK depending on model.)

    Retail pricing is probably going to be around 7500 SEK if it comes down from the current level if availability improves, small country, expensive hardware and taxes so low number of cards and that's going to cost a bit which skews things for the competition since NVIDIA has more GPU's in stock and price slashing and sales are frequent on top of the lower entry price.

    VII's a bit of a anomaly though, Vega 20 from the Mi50 compute workstation card made into a generic gaming/compute GPU now also with pro drivers but the HBM and it's interface and other bits and it's not going to be a cheap buy so for gamers well it's probably wait for Navi if the 500 series Polaris isn't good enough, possibly Vega 56 or even 64 if pricing is favorable which can also be hit & miss. :D


    I am surprised to see it still in stock however, was under the assumption VII was very low in terms of GPU's produced and shipped per batch so selling out and slow to restock and those that have stock would also set prices a bit higher.
    No third party variants yet either and I think Sapphire outright said they aren't doing anything like the Nitro or Pulse for this card though water blocks are appearing now so that's a possibility for going above what the stock cooler allows for.


    EDIT: As for the price comparison with NVIDIA and the 2000 series well mostly personal curiosity, mining situation and low availability for Vega had many stores sell it for above 1080Ti prices here which destroyed it's price/performance position compared to NVIDIA which now had both and then the 2000 series made a further push though once that was out the mining had at least slowed down and Vega GPU's mostly normalized in price. :)
