It was only 24 hours ago that we reported about the delayed custom Radeon RX Vega graphics cards, but now Hardwareluxx has talked with four manufacturers that have provided very similar answers.
I reached out to some of my AIB contacts and can also personally confirm AMD hasn't shipped any Vega GPUs yet, and that they should turn up sometime next month. VideoCardz has also reached out to their contacts, with the same news, as it seems AMD is in trouble with Vega production.
As for the four manufacturers that Hardwareluxx talked to, this is what they said (in a rough translation):
- Manufacturer A: Custom RX Vega models are already developed and ready to be launched, company is waiting for GPUs from AMD. They can't estimate when more variants of RX Vega 56 will be available.
- Manufacturer B: AMD is always focusing on reference models first, however the availability is a major issue and causes delays of custom models. They have no date for custom designs to be available.
- Manufacturer C: Manufacturer has no final specs nor launch date for their custom design. They waiting for GPUs to be delivered, they assume no cards will be ready by mid-October.
- Manufacturer D: They are waiting for GPUs, no comment on their custom designs.
