What kind of pricing are we talking about?
Do they require Pixlas like the 64
Works normally on internal power.
Would you care to explain exactly how to power it internally because I've tried every possible combination yet it still shuts the machine down under load. MVC has been absolutely no help whatsoever. Took my money easily enough but refuses to respond to repeated requests for help. $550 bucks for something doesn't work as advertised. He's since updated this website to say the Vega 56 "requires a lot of power" but fails to explain whether it will work powered internally. Absolutely horrible customer service.
All video editors would say that "VEGA 56" is one of the best editing softwares up to these days. it is just too complicated to understand especially if you are a beginner, that's why the experts are not just suggesting to use it if you are still a beginner. It would be better to start on easier and more accessible softwares so that they will understand the basics first. The pre orders for still those who don't have it is now open, that's why you guys should grab the chance as soon as possible!
Oh can't wait for this, this is BIG!
I bet the USD to AUD currency conversion is gonna kill me lol
But this is epic mate, great effort.
I am looking for an AMD card to upgrade to from my Macvidcards GTX 980.
Do you have an ETA of orders?
Hi, is the AMD VEGA 56 for sale already EFI flashed for Mac Pro 5.1 with working boot screen? Thanks.
I bought one and it does have boot screen support but no matter how I power it the machine shuts down under load.
I've tried using two SATA power ports and also the CD/DVD ROM power connectors and it keeps shutting down. Pixlas mod might be the only way to run it on internal power.
Did you get it working?
Nope, no matter what I try the machine shuts down. It's 5,1 single CPU model with no expansion cards other than the Vega 56 installed. I'm not sure what to do now other than contact them for a solution. The only way to get it to work is by using an external power supply and that's not a long-term solution. I hope MVC can help.
I'm assuming the owner doesn't check these posts because he doesn't seem to want to help those that have spent hard earned money for products that don't work. I guess I'll have to let PayPal resolve the matter as they failed to respond to repeated emails. We've bought quite a few cards over the years and had no issue but this time is the exact opposite. Ignoring customers is no way to treat people.
I have a 5,1 with 12-core x5690s, and every PCI and SATA port filled but an rx580 / no pixlas and never had any shutdowns even under heavy virtualization loads maybe possible PSU going bad? If you wanna chat more my email is email@example.com
Any updates on other Vega models? Vega FE would be great. Is the flashing service on these going to start soon?
Will it be limited to certain brands like how the 580 is only Sapphire, MSI or gigabyte.
When do you foresee being to take flashing orders for these? I'm assuming that Reference models from MSI will be supported. Thanks!
Lower the price and I'll buy one
I wouldn't buy it if I were you. It does NOT run on internal power not matter where you pull it from and MVC will not reply to any emails no matter how many you send. Ended up having to open a case thru PP and he still haven't responded. His people in the UK claim it runs on internal power but make no effort to explain how. Not worth it at any price.
Which vega 56 card are you trying to use exactly?
It's the same one pictured for sale on MVC. Powercolor VEGA 56. More specifically this one:
Maybe you'll get one that can be powered internally but I was not so lucky. The fact the seller makes absolutely no effort to resolve this problem doesn't encourage future purchases. Had to open a claim through PayPal.
Try the Powerlink method, they don't cost much.
Macrumors site is worth a visit.
Should have also added, make sure the switch on your reference Vega 56 is switched to the low power BIOS and stays there! The switch should therefore be on the fan side position.
(The default factory switch position is on the faceplate side which draws too much power.)
If your card is faulty isn't there a 60 day warranty?
If you go back and read the previous posts you'll see I've already tried a PowerLink to no avail. The card he sold me isn't defective it simply draws too much power 220+ watts.
It seems is has the Vega 64 BIOS installed and the water-cooled version at that. If you switch the BIOS switch you lose the bootscreen since it's not using the MVC modified one. I've confirmed a bone stock Vega 56 exactly like the one he sold me draws 160 watts and has no problem running on internal power. He either did this on purpose or he's an idiot.
Don't know if he just likes to take people's money and not offer any help but I've washed my hands of it. PayPal took care of it and I won't darken his doorstep again.
