Yes, they did that.
If vega 64 had performance that was better than the gtx 1080. Then I would I have been all over a pair of AIO vega 64. I have a monster power supply so I don't really care about power draw. At that level of perfomance the price would have been right but it's basically an AMD version of the gtx 1080 and I can get an actual gtx 1080 for LESS. So why bother with vega?
As I mentioned I have a freesync monitor but that's not enough to make me buy vega. It's a bit of a hassle to sell it but I am in a position where I can buy the g-sync version and then sell it.....so I don't feel locked in. Before I go gsync though I am going to keep using my current monitor and see how it goes for gaming.
Anyways. I am a bit disappointed with how it turned out I was looking forward to going full red team with my latest build.
Caveat: Of course this all relates to pricing in australia but it's relevant to me. YMMV.
