Just ordered a Vega 64 (the Gigabyte Gaming one) for the 499eur price it was originally announced at, nearly an year ago. I was absolutely certain that such an opportunity will never present itself. Too bad the promo didn't have the 56 for 399, but oh well ^^

That's a very good price. On ebay they offered it for slightly less and they pumped up the price for ~30 €.

I'd probably still shell out more for the Nitro+ from Sapphire, despite being almost 90€ more. It's just beefier. Nothing against Gigabyte, I generally have good experience with their graphic cards and actually own their right now (although under AORUS brand).
I know what you mean man - my last four or five cards were of Sapphire make, but the Nitro+ Vega just won't fit my case (basically the smallest full ATX I could find).
So I had my eyes set on their cheaper Pulse card, but as it is I just can't take a 56 over a 64 and pay more at that ^^

Turns out it is not a sale. It was initially as in you could order the card for 498 + free shipping, i.e. you get 10 more euro off (which I didn't because I just ordered straight away without using the promo link lol).
But now that this is done, the card is still being sold for 499. It's really weird as both this card and the Nitro+ Vega 64 are being sold for less than their respective Vega 56 counterparts...
