AMD Vega price hike irks reviewers

When AMD launched the RX Vega 64 and 56 last month, reviewers were impressed by its price-performance and thought that the new GPUs could give NVIDIA a run for its money.

However, it has turned out that the prices were promotional rates with the actual prices around US$100 more. This has drawn the ire of several influential reviewers who felt misled and are considering updating their reviews.

This looks like a PR disaster for a company trying to rise again to compete in the high-end GPU market.
