This is similar to the expired deal on the same card from Amazon. Slightly better if you do not pay tax at Newegg.

The $30 promo:
What convinced me to buy this card is that I found out that you can use non NVIDIA cards to accelerate machine learning with Keras quite seamlessly with plaidml.
I tried plaidml last night on my GPU built into my i7 6700 (Intel® HD Graphics 530) which turned out to be just half the speed of the 4 cores/8 threads of the i7 6700 on my fairly deep stacked LSTM network. From the benchmarks it seems that RX 570 is about 10x faster than the Intel HD 530, so I hope it will be 2x faster than the i7 6700 for my Keras project. I think it also compares favorably with NVIDIA 1060, being about similar speed in benchmarks and having 8GB of memory instead of 3GB, for less money.
