It’s been exactly one month since AMD debuted the very first member of the RX Vega family of high-end gaming graphics cards, yet not a single custom RX Vega graphics card is available today. Asus was supposed to be the first to market with its triple fan Strix versions of the RX Vega 64 and 56, but we’ve yet to see either become available in any retailer.

The Wait For Custom RX Vega Cards Continues

Furthermore, Hardware.fr reports that discussions with AMD’s add-in-board partners revealed that none of them, save for Asus, have any custom cards ready to announce. One AIB went a step further to say that they don’t believe they can deliver custom designs anytime before mid October. Claiming that they don’t even have a date for when they’re supposed to begin receiving shipments of standalone Vega 10 GPUs to build their custom cards with.

So far all RX Vega graphics cards that AIBs have been selling were directly supplied by AMD. All the card makers have been doing so far is slapping their stickers on the cards, packaging them and putting them out the door. If you’ve been holding off that Vega purchase in hopes of grabbing a custom card, you will have to wait some more. Asus may be the only exception, official word is their Strix cards will begin shipping this month. Exactly when is still uknown.
