Dat price man. 689 for a Vega64 air? I would add a bit more to get a 1080Ti any day over that.

So they launch Vega reference cards just as AMD announces* that they're halting production to allocate GPUs to custom partner cards. That's impeccable timing for you.



*technically not an official announcement, given that one senior engineer said so in an interview, but that's confirmation enough for me, at least.

What? Biostar has never been notable, and have definitely not become less so over time. Perhaps they've had more of a presence in the US market before, but internationally, they've barely started showing up at all. They're a C-level OEM at best. I'm quite happy with my X370GTN - wish it had wifi, but the layout and feature set are top-notch for AM4 ITX - but their firmware and software are both miles behind the competition. As such, Biostar lagging behind the competition is no surprise to anyone. What is a surprise is announcing a product just as its maker announces its discontinuation, though.

Vega reference cards are (at least according to that interview that went around last week), to free up chips for non-reference designs. Makes a lot of sense, given the shortages.
