AMD is planning to increase the pricing of its Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards by 10 percent. That’s according to a report shared on China’s Board Channels forums, which claims that RDNA 2 products will soon cost $20 to $40 more. The price increase was reportedly prompted by TSMC’s decision of increasing wafer costs.
A machine-translated copy of the story:
AMD series graphics cards will continue to rise sharply. According to upstream sources, AMD has notified AIB and all brands around the world that AMD RX 6000 series will be fully expanded.
AMD considered that because TSMC’s foundry costs have risen too much, AMD has officially decided to target all RX 6000 series. The model implementation has increased by about 10 percent, about 20 to 40 US dollars, that is, from the next AMD GPU supply and shipment cost prices will rise across the board.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards continue to be sold at prices that far exceed MSRP. According to the latest price trends shared by 3D Center, retailers in Germany are selling RDNA 2 products with a 90 percent markup.
