Gigabyte seems to be fed up with the delay that AMD has made in releasing the GPUs for the partner companies to produce custom Vega 64 models. Although the company has no plans of letting the companies produce custom models of Vega 56, as far as the Vega 64 is concerned, the wait is growing painful for a lot of AMD lovers. The famous internet forum, Tom’s Hardware says that Gigabyte has no plans for custom Radeon RX Vega 64.
Other than the delay from AMD’s side, Gigabyte right after the introduction of AORUS lineup, has changed the way of its working. The AORUS lineup only covers the high-end models with more expensive and better-looking variants.
The delay from AMD’s side, however, stays in place for all the partner manufacturing companies. Earlier, it was called as a shortage of Vega chips due to which we were not seeing any custom cards. Now, the situation has taken many turns as it has been several weeks since the release of AMD’s star Vega 64 graphics card.
STRIX Vega 64
The only custom Vega 64 that we’ve heard about, is the STRIX Vega 64 by ASUS whose reviews are already out on several forums.
Other than that, all manufacturing companies seem to have turned away from the Vega 64 concept and are busy in revamping the Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti in their own way.
