Pre-orders are over - the card went on sale a few days ago, and swiftly went out of stock everywhere. uk.pcpartpicker.com is a handy resource for finding retailers who'll let you back-order, but at this point, you're better off buying a 1080, which is faster, cheaper (by about £50 up-front, and potentially by hundreds over the lifespan of the card), and available for purchase immediately.

The cheapest 1080 I can find is £450. The Vega 56 is £380-£400. Where are you seeing 1080's for £330-£350?

Partpicker itself has Vega 56 there for £399.99 so what 1080s have you seen for £350? Or are you getting the Vega 56 mixed up with the Vega 64?

Well nowhere as there is no stock yet. It's priced at $399 so £310+vat=£372 so should be £380 to £400 (CCL have £399 pre-order).

The point was it's not or ever will be £50 more than a 1080.

Apparently the preorder prices were "introductory"
