Last month AMD launched the gamer-targeting RX Vega 64 and Vega 56 GPUs, which are currently only available as reference cards, when you can find them in stock. With various reports of the Vega 64 especially running hot, many are recommending and waiting for custom from various AIB manufacturers. To date though, only Asus has announced a custom Vega GPU, the STRIX Vega, and while initially available was said to be early-September, there is still no sign of it.

As reported by VideoCardz, Hardware.fr has been asking hardware partners about when we might see custom cards launched or even announced, and they were not able to get a solid answer. Apparently one of the manufacturers said it is waiting on the chips for a custom card to arrive yet. If you are hoping to pick up a custom card, the estimation is you might have to wait until mid-October or later.

On the bright side though, the manufacturers had engineering boards as early as June, so there has been time to prepare the custom designs.
