AMD Radeon RX 6000 pricing up by 10%

The company has allegedly informed board partners it will be increasing the price of Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards.

According to Board Channels forums, AMD has decided to increase the pricing of Radeon RX 6000 GPUs by 10%. Cards based on RDNA2 architecture will now cost 20 to 40 USD more, according to the report. The new pricing will take effect with the next shipment of GPUs to board partners, which means it will probably take a week or two before it affects the retail price, however, AIBs may adjust their pricing sooner.

In fact, AMD Radeon RX 6000 series have already marked a 9% price increase in November compared to October. A further price adjustment was to be expected considering the demand for GPU usually increases around the Holiday season.

The report cites the recent TSMC wafer cost increase as a culprit behind AMD’s decision. AMD has thus far not increased pricing of any other product based on the same node (TSMC N7), such as the Ryzen 5000 series.
