    Can Hexus do us a favour and just not bother publishing graphics cards news until the market has sorted itself out?

    Pulse is generally the cheaper line of graphics cards too. Some how I expect this won't be close to £400!

    Maybe if the Ferrari was a tarted up Fiat Tipo saloon which cost £100k.

    Re: Sapphire adds Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56 to lineup

    Until retailers start restricting sales of cards to customers, then I'll probably upgrade to.... a console at some stage. Shame, means the retailers will lose out on all of the additional parts I would purchase, but that's their choice in being greedy and letting the market get into this situation in the first place.

    Edit: Either way, at the current pricing, they can forget it.

    Re: Sapphire adds Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56 to lineup

    Makes sense, rush the pulse out the door with maximum cost saving (PCB area costs money) to maximise margins on the mining sales (who'll pay the same price for this as any other V56)

    I looked at this and thought it rather resembled that Golf GTi in black with the red stripes... Clubsport, is it?

    Vapourware. OK, I know it's not but it might as well be.

    What exactly is the point of releasing a new Graphics card line, when none of us normal gamers will ever lay our hands on them?
