Following a report from last week, a price adjustment for the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series is now in effect. Customers considering buying Radeon RX 6000 cards in near future may face up to 78 USD higher prices.
According to a post on Board Channels forums, the Gigabyte graphics card factory announced new pricing for AMD RDNA2 models on December 1st. The increase is higher than expected and affects all models except Radeon RX 6900 XT. This price hike is likely to affect GPU sales starting in a week or two, depending on when they ship out of the factory to distributors.
