AMD is officially dropping the price of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 [UPDATE: AMD clarifies things]

AMD has officially dropped the price of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 (in order to most probably rival the release of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1660Ti). According to the press release, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 offers high-end performance and incredible features with an attractive price tag, as it is now available for $279 / £249 / 285 EUR on various places.

As the press release reads, today’s top titles require increasing amounts of memory to deliver the performance, hyper-realistic settings and life-like characters gamers demand. With 8GB of HBM2 memory, the RX Vega 56 is purpose-built to power the most demanding titles.

Harnessing the AMD Vega GPU architecture, the RX Vega 56 also features:

  • Rapid Packed Math doubles the rate of compute to allow for faster physics and compute calculations on RX Vega GPUs.
  • Shader Intrinsics allow direct game-to-hardware access on RX Vega cards to extract more performance from the GPU.
  • Radeon FreeSync display technology brings an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate, while FreeSync 2 HDR ensures low-latency, high-brightness pixels and a wide color gamut to High Dynamic Range (HDR) content for PC displays. 

Gamers who purchase a Radeon RX Vega 56 or eligible Radeon RX Vega 56 powered PC will receive complimentary PC versions of Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2, three of 2019’s most anticipated titles.

UPDATE:

AMD got in touch with us in order to better clarify things. According to the red team, this is a promotion and not a price drop.

“Radeon RX Vega 56 has been heavily promoted since the holidays and into the new year as partners have been eager to make RX Vega 56 and its forward looking 8GB of HBM2 available for more gamers. To clarify, the current Radeon RX Vega 56 promotion is not a price drop. Additionally, the RX Vega 56 graphics card will continue to be offered as part of AMD’s Raise the Game: Fully Loaded bundle with three of this year’s blockbuster titles.”
