It took a couple of days but AMD has finally issued a statement to address the Radeon RX Vega pricing controversy. This looks like a very carefully drafted statement vetted by AMD's lawyers. It can be interpreted in multiple ways and does not offer a firm clue about whether we're going to see $499 standalone cards in the near future:
Radeon RX Vega 64 demand continues to exceed expectations. AMD is working closely with its partners to address this demand. Our initial launch quantities included standalone Radeon RX Vega 64 at SEP of $499, Radeon RX Vega 64 Black Packs at SEP of $599, and Radeon RX Vega 64 Aqua Packs at SEP of $699. We are working with our partners to restock all SKUs of Radeon RX Vega 64 including the standalone cards and Gamer Packs over the next few weeks, and you should expect quantities of Vega to start arriving in the coming days.
