Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB

Thanks to Melvin [1] for the heads up. I managed to get quite a good deal for the Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB (ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-O8G-GAMING) [2] on Lazada [3].

I got it for S$499 which is a massive discount from the usual price of S$1,179. At first, I was wondering whether it is a fake since the discount seems absurd.

Melvin told me that it is not, since he also bought the same thing. Upon further Googling, it seems Asus and AMD are running a promotion on selected graphics cards and hence the price is a steal.

It comes with three years local warranty by Asus [4] and an AMD coupon [5] that allows you to redeem two free games out of three from Ubisoft and Capcom. These three games are: Tom Clancy’s The Division 2,Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5.

I am intending to use this graphics card with my yet-to-be-bought Razer Core X [19] eGPU to power my triple monitor setup for my Apple MacBook Pro 13″ with Touch Bar and Touch ID (Mid 2017) [20].

In the event that I am going to get a desktop to replace my Apple iMac 27″ (Late 2012) [21] whose display is already spoiled, I will get a Mac mini and this setup will still be compatible.
