Gigabyte Refuses Custom RX Vega 64 Production

The lack of Vega GPU’s that AMD are able to provide to their partners has created quite a problem for partnering companies to release custom variants of Vega 64 graphics cards, and now Gigabyte has no plans for custom Radeon Rx Vega 64’s.

UPDATE: I have recently been in contact with the Senior Editor for Tweak Town (Anthony Garreffa) and he has confirmed through his source at Gigabyte that this is actually fake news and Gigabyte has never denied any production of custom Vega 56 cards.

According to Tom’s Hardware Gigabyte has no plans for custom designed Radeon RX Vega 64’s but the company does not rule out the possible creation of RX Vega 56’s.

We can assume this lack of custom Vega 64 graphics cards has something to do with AMD having difficulty in providing Vega chips to partners, therefore providing the delay we are experiencing now. There is only one custom Vega 64 that has been officially announced since the release of Vega many weeks ago and that is the ASUS STRIX Vega 64.

NVIDIA have their new 1070Ti which is to expected sometime in October and we can assume that partners will be getting their hands on those. So really, Gigabyte skipped over waiting for Vega 64 and have moved on to NVIDIA’s 1070Ti custom which we will no doubt see in the near distant future.
