AMD Increases Radeon RX 6000 GPU Prices by 10% – Report

AMD reportedly increases Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards pricing by 10% for board partners. RDNA2 GPUs will now cost 20 to 40 USD more.

AMD may have increased the RDNA 2 RX 6000 graphics cards prices for its board partners by an average of 10%. It is still unknown whether AMD also proposes a price increase for partners such as PlayStation and Xbox, whose consoles also use RDNA2 chipsets. Board Channels only talked about price increases towards the manufacturers of Add-in Boards (AIB).

The Chinese forum Board Channels reports that the prices of AMD RX 6000 RDNA 2 graphics cards will continue to increase even further, and growth will not be limited to any regions and therefore will go to the entire world. The 10 percent additional cost would amount to $20 to $40 additional material costs for these partners.

The main reason for this was the rise in prices for 7-nanometer TSMC products. The source also informs that the Taiwanese company raised prices not only for AMD but the most obvious growth we will see, most likely, is in the graphics cards of the “Red” company.

At the moment, AMD has notified its partners of the need to adjust prices for the end products of the Radon RX 6000 GPU lineups. This means that users will see even more price increases, although between October and November there was a 10% additional cost on average across the board.

All sources, for the time being, indicate that the normalization of prices should not be expected before 2023, and therefore, we will probably not see any magical drops in prices during 2022.

As with the competitor Nvidia, asking prices for Radeon video cards have been raised considerably since the launch of the Radeon RX 6000 generation. AMD itself, however, declared many times that the brand wanted to get as many GPUs as possible into the hands of gamers, preferably at the original target price. On AMD’s own web stores, proprietary video cards are often sold at those rates.
