AMD reportedly moves forward the RX Vega 56's review embargo

 
Update - Gamers Nexus has taken down their article. At this time the reason for this is unknown, perhaps AMD requested its removal, the article contained false information or the site has taken down the article on their own in an effort to improve their relationship with AMD. 
 
 
A new report from Gamers Nexus has stated that AMD has moved forward the review embargo for their RX Vega 56, allowing reviews for AMD's $399 Vega GPU to be released on the same day as RX Vega 64 GPUs. 

AMD has also reportedly sent RX Vega 56 GPUs to reviewers, giving reviewers a mere weekend to test the GPU before the review embargo passes. At this time AMD's RX Vega 56 is said to launch on August 28th, two weeks after the RX Vega 64.

Interestingly, the article kind of insinuates that AMD has little faith in the Vega 64 card.Quote

Gamers Nexus has since taken down their article on this subject. There can be many reasons for this.

Gamers Nexus broke Threadripper's NDA and they insinuated that they have not received a Vega sample as punishment. They word this as working in "defiance" against AMD's "expressed favouritism" after some people were able to post Threadripper data.

The simple thing is that Gamers Nexus broke NDA in a way that can only be seen as a way to boost their traffic as PC enthusiasts searched for every bit of early Threadripper data that they could find. They willingly broke embargo.

It is likely that Gamers Nexus has removed their article in an attempting to mend their relationship with AMD. Either that or some of their articles content was false.Quote

From what I have heard it just isn't ready. Not in any volume. What's the point in launching something you can't sell?Quote
