Powercolor's RX Vega 56 is now available for £350 with three free games

While Nvidia's RTX 2070 has added some much-needed value to their Turing lineup, it is undeniable that the graphics card is still on the expensive area of the hardware spectrum, currently selling for a minimum of £460 in the UK while delivering performance that is similar to or exceeds a GTX 1080.   

PC gamers that cannot afford a £460 graphics card will need to make do with last-generation offerings, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any good offers on the table. 

Seemingly in response to the RTX 2070's release, Powercolor's has RX Vega 56 Red Dragon has been reduced to £349.99 at Overclockers UK. Better still is the fact that this graphics card includes a free Radeon Gaming bundle as part of AMD's "Raise the Game" promotion, which gives PC gamers free copies of Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Star Control: Origins and Strange Brigade, all of which are recent releases. 

At £349.99, this RX Vega 56 is cheaper than most GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti graphics cards at major UK retailers, making it a great value purchase even if you are not considering the games included in the Radeon "Raise the Game" bundle. The only downside with this offer is that you will no be purchasing a GPU with a forward-looking graphics architecture like Turing, but that being said, no current Generation graphics card does that at this price point.

Followers of OC3D's game Performance Reviews will know that more often than not in recent releases, AMD's RX Vega 56 can achieve performance levels which are closer to Nvidia's GTX 1080 than the GTX 1070 that the RX Vega 56 is priced to compete against. With the lack of new graphics cards in the sub-£400 GPU market, AMD's RX Vega 56 remains a solid purchase for PC gamers, especially if they know how to overclock/undervolt.

It's getting there on price. Anyone know if the games can be resold in whatever format they come in? That's at least another £50 off if you can. Amazing that the RTX series has made even Vega prices look good by comparison!

EDIT: Shame that's one of the most hideous card designs around, not sure I want that in my PC!Quote

Yeah I was gonna post about this the other day. Not bad, not bad at all.

AMD does have some enticing cards tbh, they just haven't been priced right at all.Quote

If only AMD GPU's weren't so finnicky and probelmatic with emulators I'd be all over one of these to replace my 970.Quote

What emulators you running?
I've ran Northern Islands, Polaris and Vega with a lot of different emulators and never had an issueQuote

Mainly CEMU & RPSC3.


There are many problems with slowdown and graphical glitches that just don't happen with Nvidia GPU's.


Reading the Reddit CEMU thread will confirm this.


It may change when/if CEMU, in particular, adopts Vulkan but that's just a maybe for now.Quote
