AMD's Vega 56 may be a last-gen flagship, but you can pick one up for the lowest price we've seen at retail today. Newegg has listed MSI's Radeon RX Vega 56 Air Boost 8G OC for $299.99 (after a $20 MIR), as it counters Amazon's massive Prime Day dealstravaganza. That's a total savings of $60.
The Vega 56 comes armed with 56 Compute Units fed by 8GB of HBM2 memory communicating across a 2049-bit bus. Vega 56 serves up 1156 / 1471 MHz base/boost clocks, but MSI bumps that up to 1181 / 1520 MHz. Meanwhile, 410 GB/s of memory bandwidth feeds the beast.

You feed the card power through two 8-pin connectors, and three DisplayPort and a single HDMI port offer plenty of connectivity options.
