September is about to end and their is no trace of STRIX Vega, in fact, there’s no trace of any custom Vega. Many might be thinking now when will be these custom cards will be available as AMD failed to lunch them in September as per their claim.
If not sept, when will be the card has to be expected?
With no news from AMD regarding it’s custom card it’s difficult to interpret the expected launch of STRIX Vega but thanks to Hardware.fr for taking the matter into account. To find out the expected launch of custom cards Hardware.fr asked around if any AMD partner has received Vega but answer was such a despair as manufacturer said that they had not received any chips from AMD.
Not all the manufacturer said same about the Custom Vega chips, among them one (unnamed) manufacturer said that they are still waiting for chips to arrive, so launch before mid-October is very unlikely.
Taking the statement of unnamed manufacture into account we can least interpret that custom cards will be on shelf somehow in the end of October or in the start of November.
Reasons of delay
Not any solid reasons is known yet as AMD is mouth zipped about the delayed issue, due to the present situation the following issue is to be marked as the STRIX Vega delay reason:
- AMD Raja kaduri 3 month break.
- AMD focus on mainstream processor to compete with Intel.
