    am I missing something here?
    besides it being a reference design
    this card is just over 400$ and all the other vega 64s are over 500$

    I was also looking at a vega 56 but it costs more
    idk, which one would you get? just go with a cheap RX 580?
    I am mainly looking for an upgrade to a R9 290X
    I do play to do some VR gaming

    i have 1 of those very cards, i did put a custom water block on it, but the card itself performs very well,in fact i had it flashed to 1750mhz successfully, but have since reverted the bios to 1630mhz with rock solid performance with @OnnA help and teachings . i have it paired with a power cooler reference card as well.
    jump on this deal folks

    If You won't LC this one, go for 2x or 3xFan Models.
    Sapphire is on sale now, but remember -> Black Friday is coming :D
    So Maby U will get even better deals + Make sure You're equiped w/FreeSync.

    This card is fine as long as you drop the voltage and clocks just a bit so it stays cooler and manages to stay at boost clock for much longer periods of time.
