      VEGA IS FINALLY HERE, ITS IN STOCK ALONG WITH SOME EPIC BUNDLES & FREESYNC DEALS!! | Overclockers UK Forums

       

      OK its being a long time coming, finally we have one of the most advanced graphics cards to exist featuring the latest HBM2.0 memory and a whopping 8G of it for good measure. Performance out the door is very good, especially at this price point, but remember AMD never disappointment with performance uplifts from driver updates and as games take advantage of the GCN architecture and HBM2.0 memory making these cars future proof and a great option for anyone upgrading from an older AMD card or building a new system. Also remember with Vulkan enabled games VEGA is pretty much untouchable at this price point.

       

      Now the good and bad news, the good news is AMD are rebating early launch sales to allow us to hit £449.99 on the stand alone black card which has no games. This is a launch only price which AMD at present are saying will be withdrawn in the near future, when if it happens is unknown, but remember do not be shocked if the price jumps nearly £100 in a few days.

       

      This time round there is no early adopter tax, quite the opposite on the stand alone black card, so do be quick.

       

      We've also made some bundles as well, these bundles feature NO DISCOUNT, what you get is two AAA titles known as Prey and yet to be released Wolfenstein II PC games, worth a solid £50 between them. Well I lie, they include the Black Card which has £100 discount up front, so by buying the bundles you get the black card at the launch discounted price, but also score the two free games. This is also same case for the Samsung & VEGA monitor bundle, it includes the black pre-discounted card, but also scores you the two free games.

       

      I've also done some nice cheeky discounts on Ryzen CPU, FREESYNC Monitors which shall be listed below to celebrate the launch of VEGA.

       

      You can now finally build the AMD system of your dreams, lovely Ryzen or Threadripper CPU, DDR4 AM4/TR4 motherboard and of course a lovely VEGA card.
