AMD RX Vega Radeon Packs could save you up to $420
AMD has decided to launch its new line of Vega graphics cards in packs. AMD has decided to take advantage of the release of its highly anticipated graphics cards by adding on supplementary components to getting the cards early.
One of the reasons that AMD has given for bundling the graphics card is that crypto currency miners are most likely to be disenfranchised to buy the cards due to having to spend more on the cards to get discounts on items that they don’t need or want that are included in the packs.
The graphics cards come in three packs; Red, Black and Aqua. These packs come with different cards and gaming related items. It should be noted that you will be able to buy the Radeon RX Vega 56 for $399 or the Radeon RX Vega 64 air cooled edition for $499 after August as standalone prices with no additional discounts or bundles. These packs include rebates for 2 free games, motherboards and Ryzen 7 CPU’s and a Samsung monitor.
Radeon Red Pack: $499 USD
Radeon RX Vega 56 Air Cooled edition
Radeon Black Pack: $599 USD
Radeon RX Vega 64 Air Cooled edition (Black shroud or Limited Edition Silver shroud)
Radeon Aqua Pack: $699 USD
Radeon RX Vega 64 (Liquid Cooled edition)
amdrewards.com will have all the rewards/digital coupons available once you have purchased one of the packs. These packs cost an additional estimated $100 more than the standalone graphics cards by themselves. The packs include rebates on your preferred combination of a Ryzen 7 CPU (1700X or 1800X) and a choice of three X370 Motherboards.
The following countries; Australia, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, USA, have a rebate of $200 offered on a Samsung 34- inch CF791-Series 1440p Curved Ultrawide FreeSync monitor.Unfortunately, some will have to go without as those with systems only looking for a graphics card won’t see any benefit from the vouchers.
The aim of these packs may not be solely to discourage crypto-currency-miners and may be a nice way to pocket a small amount of change for AMD. However, the savings come to a potential sum of $420 if you happen to be in a selected region that the offers are applicable. This massive saving will most likely be attractive to those looking to go as extreme as possible and save some money at the same time. This will also allow AMD to ramp up production and sell to those who need an entire new PC. AMD will be selling the cards standalone after the initial release period with all the cards available after August 2017. This has annoyed many fans and potential buyers in the market for an AMD high-end graphics card. Whether or not this marketing scheme works out for AMD is yet to be seen.
