These RX Vega 64 43.5MH/s at 130W rumours are extremely misleading

These 43.5 at 130W claims are false.



Read more on these recent RX Vega mining efficiency rumours.

It was 248 watts. Not 130watts.

Still, wasn't an accurate measurement.

Wccftech's 248W testing is based on tests from Reddit that listed 130W, both are wrong in their own ways. You'd be surprised how many sites are still reporting the 130W story, which is spreading some false but highly attractive info to miners regarding Vega.

Yeah guess it doesn't matter what number you choose. It's all wrong.

All it means though is that miners are gonna gobble up Vega even more and prices are gonna suck for longer.

Looking at Overclockers UK I can see that they have had supply of RX Vega GPUs quite consistently over the last week, with standard (non-pack) pricing. At least in the UK there isn't any real pricing issues ATM.

Yeah, it is mind boggling how many sites are reporting this all as fact, with PC gamer even having a piece on it.

That is interesting. In the US it's just completely sold out anywhere you look. Heck I can't even search for a RX 56 on most websites. It only shows the 64.
