    What happens when you put a custom waterblock on RX VEGA 64?

    The authors of the article I quoted actually said that they're interested & considering to do the same tests but with Pascal vs Maxwell - which is what you're saying effectively.

    Micro Center is charging $10,000 for multiple GPU orders to thwart miners
    http://www.pcgamer.com/micro-center-is-charging-10000-for-multiple-gpu-orders-to-thwart-miners/

    "Crytpocurrency miners have turned the GPU market on its head, and while AMD and Nvidia do not seem to be doing a whole lot about it, Micro Center has decided to step in. The retailer is limiting orders of some graphics cards to two before jacking up the price.

    Take for example the PowerColor AXRX Radeon RX 580 Red Devil with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. The Radeon RX 580 is a popular card in the Ethereum mining community. In what appears to be an obvious attempt to thwart miners, Micro Center will sell up to two of these cards for $350 each. Quantities above that jump all the way to $10,000."

    Especially for AMD is this very very good news. Selling to more people instead of fewer, means that they can keep production at the same level as now(Be forced to increase the production means higher losses):D

    The original partner suggested retail was $229 for the RX580, which I thought was way too low back then, what with the Nvidia 1060 MSRP $299.

    Microcenter has the same $10k deal for more than 2 1060's as well, and the single unit price is $329.

    Is the RX580 worth $20 more? I think so :)

    The RX 580 at $350 is way too much.
    Here in UK, I was previously able to find RX 480 (8GB) for roughly £200/£220 (cheapest).
    The RX 580 shouldn't really cost more than £250 given the minor boost in clock speeds (all of which can be easily accomplished with a quality silicon 480 and undervolted to consume a lot less power in the process - because, realistically, the RX 580 is 480 with a better silicon, a name change and higher clock speeds - the manufacturer released RX 580's undervolt a lot better than most 480 cards if Reddit forums are anything to go by, meaning, they are end up more power efficient than 1060's.
    I think most RX 580's manufacturer overclocked speeds can be undervolted to lower levels as well, or at least, downclocked just slightly and then undervolted - still smashing 1060 in most DX11 titles performance-wise and overtaking in DX12.

    The problem is all GPU prices have gone up, you can't talk about the current price of the RX580 without putting it in the context of what 1060's are selling for in comparison.

    See my previous post where at Microcenter the 1060 is going for $329 while the RX580 is going for $349, that's only a $20 difference, and the RX580 as you noted is faster, so why shouldn't it cost a bit more?

    Comparing MSRP to MSRP I think the RX580 @ $229 is / was under priced against the 1060 priced at $299.
