    Russian prices for Vega 56

    alexanderzhukov

      Hello Friends,

             I waited for Vega GPUs all these and previous days. And now I can get it!

           But. I faced with one interesting thing... a sad point for AMD in Russia: prices for Vega 56 and Nvidia 1080.

           You can get Vega for ~500 euro.

       

       

      GTX 1080 for ~471 euro.

       

      So. I'm sad. I'm really sad about this issue.

      Now I need a new graphic card. My last one is dead (GTX 570 (it was my first nvidia card. Before that I used only ATI/AMD cards)).

      So... my logic says me: based on conditions: prices and efficiency - you have to buy 1080 =(

      But heart says: may be you wait a little bit? may be something will change on market?

      It's a really hard case.

       

      It's not a sad story for me only, but for AMD only in my native market.

      I can assume that the sales of Vega will be extremely low because of the price policy in my country.
