According to the latest price trends previously summarized, the price trends of Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 series and AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards have not shown any signs of improvement in the recent past and are still at high levels. The graphics card market is still undergoing adjustments, but due to supplier price increases, component shortages, cryptocurrency demand, and logistics, etc., it is possible that graphics card prices will gradually rise. Even in 2022, it is difficult to expect the situation to improve significantly.
AMD to increase GPU pricing with next GPU shipment (machine translation), Source: BCF
According to VideoCardz
reports, AMD has notified global AIB and all brand partners that the Radeon RX 6000 series will have a full price increase. It is understood that the reason for AMD’s current price adjustment is the increase in foundry costs of TSMC, therefore, a unified price increase is made for all models of the Radeon RX 6000 series, and the increase is about 10%, which is about $20-$40. This means that AMD’s next batch of GPU shipment costs will rise across the board, probably at the end of this month. With the arrival of the peak shopping season in the European and American markets at the end of the year, the supply of graphics cards will become tighter. When consumers actually buy graphics cards, the price increase may be more obvious.
Although AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs also rely on TSMC’s N7 process node, there is no sign of price increases for the time being. It is not ruled out that as the supply situation deteriorates, other products will have more price increases or supply shortages. At present, almost all the market reports of survey agencies state that it will not gradually improve until 2023, and prices will tend to be normal.
