It is more than seen that the prices will not go down until the introduction of the next generation of graphics cards. In fact, like I’ve been to a couple of times leak, I don’t recommend buying RTX 30 or Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards at these prices if we are 6 to 9 months away from the next release of new graphics hardware.
Well, to give me the reason, it looks like we’re all going to increase AMD Radeon cards by 10%.
Expensive graphics cards? AMD Radeon RX 6000 will increase by 10%
Hence after the VideoCardz, AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards will be a bit more expensive in the near future. Which in turn is an increase of around ~ 50 € for each model and should be noticeable on the shelves the next time a plate is delivered. (In about 2 weeks).
Interestingly, this 10% increase could coincide with another, already expected increase in the 2021 Christmas season due to increased demand and delivery bottlenecks.
Whose fault is it?
Apparently TSMC has increased its production costs for the 7nm lines. However, contrary to this surge in graphics cards, the other 7nm products, namely the Ryzen 5000 processors, are falling in price … to respond to the recent release from Intel.
Interestingly, this price increase trend is also reaching the used market, which had even stabilized before all the new madness. After all, the RTX 30s are up ~ 6% and the RX 6000s by ~ 9% in the past few weeks.
Things are so bad that the NZXT decided to bring a complete gaming PC onto the market that uses an AMD Ryzen 5600G APU instead of a dedicated graphics card.
