Sapphire reveals reference-based Radeon VII with only 1750MHz Boost

It looks like the rumor about the AMD Radeon VII being very limited in numbers may not be true. TechPowerUp received photos of the Sapphire Radeon VII. This model is based on the reference design but one remarkable thing is that it has a Boost of just 1750MHz, whereas the model sold directly by AMD has a 1800MHz Boost.

TPU speculates AMD may be reserving 1800MHz for direct-sale cards:
Could it be that AMD is reserving 1800 MHz for cards directly sold on The memory frequency is unchanged at 1000 MHz, which works out to an HBM2 memory bandwidth of 1 TB/s. Sapphire's box for this card lists out key specifications upfront, and also features the Vega II logo.
Guess we'll find out more when more Radeon VII models arrive.
