Is the AMD RX 400 and 500 series discontinued?

I have an MSI rx480 gaming X 8gb. I got this last December with the hope to crossfire it with another one. Later I found that rx480 is replaced by 580.

I checked everywhere I know and no one stocks the Rx 480 or 580 anymore. All the ones in new egg were out of stock for all brands. I live in Australia and it's the same with many local shops as well. What's going on?

Is AMD going to release something new or should I move to NVIDIA?

More about amd 400 500 series discontinued
  1. There aren't many out there, and the ones that are out there are hella expensive. Cryptocurrency miners bought them up, driving the price up. So now we have to wait until more become available

    In regards to moving to NVIDIA, wait until the release of Vega. See how that lineup stacks against what we have today

    No they are no discontinued. It is just that Bitcoin and alternative coin mining have gained interest again so people are buying GPU's in bulk. News is that GTX 1070's are also getting harder to find.

    Nope, all GPU prices are all jacked up right now because of stupid bitcoin miners. All you can do is cry and cry.

  4. Wannabe miners bought all of them. Only wannabe miners use video cards anymore.

  6. Literally I can sell my GTX 970 for $175 right now. RX 570 MSRP is $150 and performs roughly 2/3s better than the GTX 970. But nope, no more RX 570 on sale for a while.

    Last weekend my 970 died and I picked up a RX 570 8GB at microcenter but it wasn't 150... It was 250.

    [edit] Sorry, the one I got is 580 8GB.

    They're not mining Bitcoin now, they're mining Ethereum which recently had a value spike. Ethereum is still viable to mine on GPUs and apparently was designed so it can't be easily mined with ASICs. This is probably going to continue until the value of Ethereum crashes.
