Just a quick note that AMD's Radeon RX Vega cards seem to be getting cheaper. Legit Reviews received word from Sapphire about some pretty big price cuts for the Nitro+ Vega 64 and Pulse Vega 56 video cards. It's unknown whether other card makers will follow but it seems to be a reaction to the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060.
We just got an e-mail from Sapphire USA that informed us of some major price adjustments for the Nitro+ Vega 64 and Pulse Vega 56 graphics cards. The Sapphire Nitro+ RX Vega 64 8GB will now have a $379 MSRP and the Sapphire Pulse RX Vega 56 8GB will be $329. AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 graphics cards were originally launched with a $499 MSRP and it was tough to find one for that thanks to the cryptocurrency mining boom that was happening at that time.

“SAPPHIRE Technology a designer and manufacturer of solutions for PC systems’ announces a major price drop on its NITRO+ and PULSE RX VEGA Series Graphics cards. This price reduction makes the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ RADEON RX VEGA 64 8GB DUAL HDMI / DUAL DP (UEFI) and SAPPHIRE PULSE RADEON RX VEGA 56 8GB DUAL HDMI / DUAL DP (UEFI) models more accessible to gamers looking for the best available price, performance and design combination on the market.”
The Sapphire cards qualify for the Raise the Game Fully Loaded game bundle, which features copies of Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancy’s The Division 2.
