AFAIK AMD Reward Campaign ended 30th Sep, last claim date 30th Nov (plus whilst key stock lasts), but I have received AMD Reward Coupon only last week for a V64 purchased 19th Oct.

Yes exactly, out of the case and into your house.



Every card with the same chip/GPU has the same TDP meaning it will emit the same amount of heat into the room regardless of cooler.

Reference Vega? Good option if you fancy having a wind turbine and central heating in your computer, I suppose.

You can only get reference Vega's. Custom cooled ones are still nowhere to be seen, shows what confidence AIB partners have in this line.

Will this run on a 600W power supply?

The central heating comment is untrue. Blower cards are better at dumping hot air out of the system.

Wind turbine I agree with but SFF case users have no choice.

Good to see the price of Vega cards coming back down. Probably due to the imminent release of the 1070 Ti.
With regards to "wind turbine" caused, at stock speeds they will typically be as loud as your case fans. If gaming with headphones, you'll actually be fine boosting the speed to say 3400RPM and gaining a little overclocking headroom too.

So far my whole system has peaked at 520W and that is with a Vega 64.

Anyone know when the aftermarket air-cooled versions are set to come out?

Ultimately depends on quality of your psu and other component power draw.
For example, with a 65W cpu, couple of drives & sticks of 8gb ram (amongst other components), and my Vega 56 overclocked 50% power limit, my system draws around 450W at the wall.
I have tested my system on an old FSP-500W psu and seemed somewhat stable. But overclocking with power limit is a no-no

wait for the 1070ti

never, amd's cards were late to market compared to comparable nvidia offerings, are garbage, and the oem's likely dont want to invest anything in customising them. stick to nvidia, far better.

I'd rather get this …I'd rather get this tbh:https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/palit-dual-geforce-gtx-1080-8gb-44892-laptops-direct-2819285


i think i would too. its about £50 more but then you get something which beats the vega 64

Supposedly the end of October.

Supposedly.

Ah we've missed the deadline for the games?! Argh! These f*kin cards! I so nearly bought Vega 64 air only last night. Could this be any more annoying.

Oh well. Might as well give it at least a week or two for custom now, I guess.

I'm only displaying an interest because I have a freesync monitor that I want to fully utilise for more demanding games, so there's not much point in getting an nvidia card for me.

Deal has been expired IMO . OCUK have removed the games which were earlier there as in screenshot in OP. I think they had not updated web page fully (IDK).

I had high hopes for vega over a year and half late at the best they could do was match a 1080

It looks like the development of Ryzen set them back on the graphics development. Nvidia and Intel have massively more R&D budget than AMD. The fact that AMD produce what they do with their budget is amazing, but they will find it hard to lead the pack.

Maybe, but we won't know unless they release the figures for both CPU and GPU divisions.

It's not just that though.
As I keep pointing out, as far as AMD's bottom line is concerned the most important Vega product will be the APUs. So far the Ryzen + Vega APUs have only just been announced and while the CPU performance looks very good with a quad core 4C/8T Zen CPU part, the Vega part looks a bit less impressive. Well, except that the announced parts are all 15W so while Vega doesn't look that impressive compared to their last 'Dozer APUs it does look very good for the TPU especially compared to Intel's top-of-the-range Iris Pro parts (the ones with eDRAM), or even laptop dGPUs like the GT1030M.
Of course, we have to wait for real, actual reviews and having been out of the market for so long means that a lot of OEMs might be tempted to release poor cheap designs with single-channel RAM.
However much enthusiasts might want to see AMD competing with Nvidia for dGPUs, the revenue potential of APUs is a lot higher than dGPUs (at least while AMD can't command the premium prices Nvidia gets for Titans, Teslas etc.). Plus, one of the other problems AMD have with their dGPUs is the:
'I wish AMD would release something to compete with Nvidia's 1080Ti [etc.], so that Nvidia reduce their prices, and I can then buy a 1080Ti'
sentiment which dGPUs buyers commonly express (there might be an obvious flaw in that kind of a buying strategy...)

They look impressive enough to me. They do what AMD required of them. Class leading I'd say. Imagine a tablet form factor with that power, and a wacom digitizer. Very useful.

I purchased this yesterday, arriving today. How do I know if I received the free games? Is there a code in the box

You see a lot of people expressing the desire that AMD does well enough to make other products cheaper.

I personally would really prefer if AMD offered the *best products* because I don't care who I buy from, as long as it's the best on the market.

NVIDIA have just shown a better recurring graphics card strength. AMD had a great card in the 290x, but they really didn't keep their foot on the gas after that, coasting all the way until the 480s came out.
