Anybody tested one of the two RX 550's with VGA output?

Yeston's card is widely available in Asia:  http://www.yeston.net/product/details/234/272

Sapphire's card, I'm not sure if it was ever actually in production, but you can see it has DVI-I. The reviews on Amazon.co.jp were complaining they were shipped the standard-width model (no VGA) instead:  https://www.sapphiretech.com/en/consumer/pulse-rx-550-4g-g5-lp

This blurb from Techspot says it has a "custom DAC chip". https://www.techpowerup.com/233855/sapphire-radeon-rx-550-with-dvi-i-connector-pictured

Which I guess might mean it's like the on-board VGA for later Ryzen chips, where it acts like an external DAC with a high minimum dot clock. But who knows.

I'm definitely quite curious, but I've yet to find a good deal on the Yeston card (or any deal on the Sapphire card)
