Something interesting has happened on launch day of AMD’s new RX Vega 64 GPU. The XFX reference version of the GPU has reached the number 2 spot for best selling GPUs. It was number 1 earlier today. We’re not just talking new releases, we’re talking recent history. I find that pretty intriguing given that the card has only be released for one day.
What has led to this demand? Perhaps a hunger in the AMD fan base for a high end GPU, but probably (and more realistically) miners are seeing some massive ROI or potential efficiencies in the new Vega chipset.
Either way, it’s pretty damn impressive. People have been knocking its price to performance ratio, especially considering the $100 mark ups for the “packs” that have been on sale across various online retailer websites. But when your product is selling like hot cakes, that’s always a good thing.
My Gigabyte Black RX Vega 64 will be arriving on Wednesday. I will have have unboxing footage soon. Be sure to check out the YouTube channel or this site for updates.
