Lowest price ever on this Vega 64 card. This particular model has an upgraded shroud of thick aluminum compared to the standard reference card, and a different appearance. Standard reference card MSRP is $499, the "limited edition" (which this is) MSRP is $599, so $80 savings over MSRP right now in this time of bitcoin mining inflating demand for graphics processing is substantial. Vega 64 shows few improvements over nvidia 1080 in most games at present,
but most games also have not been optimized for the newer directX12 which this card supports. If you're a content creator in 3D, 2D, video editing and the like, this card may actually be better for you than an nvidia 1080.
