Can’t find Vega 56 anywhere?

I’m trying to buy the ASUS WS Pro + a Vega 56, since everything I’ve read points to it being very silent at idle and light load. However I can’t find the Vega 56 anywhere except super marked up on eBay. Is it discontinued? If so, what’s the best replacement that is powerful + silent? It needs to be supported by Macs.

*edit* I did some more searching and it looks like the 5700XT is the better supported card to get, but that card is just as difficult to find!

@madmax00178, I'd recommend the RX 5600 XT.

@itsage, Is it quieter than the 5700xt?

@madmax00178, It consumes less power so given the same cooler design, it should run quieter and produce less heat.
