One of the big disappointments about AMD's Radeon RX Vega series was that the launch pricing was an "introductory offer" that applied to just a very low volume of cards. The Radeon RX Vega 64 was supposed to cost $499, while the Radeon RX Vega 56 would be available for $399. In reality, the pricing shot up by at least $100 very quickly after launch.
Everyone started blaming each other, with some placing the blame at AMD, distributors, retailers, cryptocurrency miners, or a combination of them. Even today, you can still not get the cards for the official launch price.
French tech site Hardware.Info picked up news that the high pricing of the Vega cards is hurting sales and that AMD rolled out a new discount. There aren't a lot of details but word on the street is that AMD's discount should enable retailers to drop the pricing of Radeon RX Vega 64 and Radeon RX Vega 56 cards by $50.
The bad news is this offer will end on November 4. Some e-tailers have begun to apply the discount. A quick check at Newegg reveals there are now two Radeon RX Vega 64 models in stock for $569.99. There's also one Radeon RX Vega 56 from PowerColor for $459.99 as well as some card from other brands for $469.99.
