EastCoast Here is what one retailer had to say about supply

Quote:
We will hold price and yes of course 5700 XT performs very close to 2070 Super and is nearly £100 cheaper and has no supply issues.

If you really feel that way, perhaps you ought to let the writer of that article know. Stating that here likely won't result in much, if anything.

Again AMD showed the garbage AIO and binning of their cards aren't worth $500 when they released the Vega 64 LE and Vega 64 LC for only a $100 difference. A few months after the Vega FE LC went on sale for $870 at BHPhoto a few months after the Vega 64 release. AMD can be greedy as any other company.

I'm not complaining about a $50-$100 difference of binned parts but $500 is outrageous when the same difference is being sold at $100 on their other part.

There is one unexpected side effect of this launch: AMD's highest-end graphics card, the Radeon VII, has been rendered largely irrelevant. Launched earlier this year and based on an older architecture, the $699 Radeon VII wasn't a particularly good product to begin with. It's now an even worse deal, beating the RX 5700 XT by just 3.8% on performance while costing a whopping 70% more.

NVIDIA shot itself in the foot

AMD is competitive again in the graphics card market because NVIDIA pushed its prices too high. Even after a de facto price cut via its SUPER product refresh, AMD was able to match NVIDIA on price while beating it on performance.

It genuinely was a better card to OC where people bought it only because of the die and put their own custom plates on

But you are right on the "special edition" price push
We can just look at the 50th Anniversary Ryzen or Radeon 7 gpu
no changes, no binning - nothing , but higher cost
The Radeon VII cost more because it's compute performance and FP64 performance. I am one of the owners of the Vega 64 LC at launch date which only cost $100 more than a Vega 64($599) Limited Edition. Not $500.

I have the highest 3DMark GPU score for a Vega 64.
