ASUS’ RX Vega 64 Strix GPU has been listed at a UK retailer

Custom RX Vega series GPUs are expected to ship within the next few weeks, with retailers starting to list these new GPUs for pre-order. Previously, Overclockers UK has listed PowerColor’s RX Vega 64 Red Devil and now the same company has listed ASUS’ RX Vega Strix 64 for pre-order for a price of £649.99.

This pre-order price is very high for an RX Vega GPU, with AMD’s own premium Liquid Cooled Edition costing £599.99 as part of OCUK’s Black Friday Sales and the Company’s own water cooled variant (reference + EK Water Block) costing £643.97. This price is a pre-order price, so it is subject to change, though right now it is hard to see this price as good value.

Hopefully, this pre-order price is inflated, with the final GPU shipping with a lower MSRP, as right now AMD needs to offer users more value with their RX Vega series GPUs to compete more favourably with Nvidia.

This custom RX Vega 64 GPU design features a 2.5-slot cooler, an extended PCB design and a triple fan cooler, like other premium Strix series GPUs that RX Vega 64 Strix will feature RGB illumination, a factory overclock and several 4-pin fan connections.

This is the second custom RX Vega GPU that has been shown at retail, hinting at an official launch relatively soon. This GPU’s listed price of £649.99 is a pre-order price, which is subject to change given the huge asterisk beside the GPU’s current list price. We will contact contacting ASUS to get an official retail price for their custom RX Vega 64 GPU.
