Why did they have to change the (awesome) reference VRM design and waste so much PCB space?

I would speculate to fit the cooler plus to refine the power delivery

So it's actually cheaping out, since Vega reference VRM design is very high quality (probably the best ever seen on reference cards)

It is probably so they could recycle their gtx 1070/1080/ti designs over to Vega. I don't think it's as ideal a design as AMD's reference design, but it saves Asus money, while they can still charge you more since it is an aftermarket design.
