AMD may increase the price of its RX6000 graphics card for add-in board (AIB) partners. A post in the AIB forum reports that AMD is raising the price for partners by 10%, citing manufacturing cost issues, and that this additional cost could be passed on to customers.

comes from post board channel forum (Via video cards) it says RX 6000 prices are up 10% across the board, which represents anywhere from a $20 to $40 increase in price per GPU. This is a price increase for AIB partners, so it doesn’t mean that all RX6000 GPUs will suddenly become 10% more expensive.

However, they could. A recent report from the GPU market found that despite relatively stable supplies over the past few months, Nvidia and AMD graphics cards are still selling for more than twice their list price.

According to a BoardChannels post, the price hike will come with the next shipment of RX 6000 graphics cards. Partners can start raising prices now, or it may take a few weeks. It is also possible that participants may not raise their prices at all, although this seems unlikely given the trend in GPU prices over the past year.

The reason for the increase is a reduction in manufacturing costs at chipmaker TSMC. The RX 6000 graphics cards are based on TSMC’s N7 manufacturing process, which is the same node that AMD uses for its Ryzen 5000 processors. Right now, it doesn’t look like prices on processors are going up despite using the same node. In fact, many Ryzen 5000 chips have been discounted ahead of Black Friday.

The GPU pricing crisis continues to get worse. Prices are up across the board, and companies like Nvidia continue to warn that supply issues will persist through the end of 2022. It may take a year or more for the GPU market to return to normal, and it’s already been a year for GPUs. The shortage started.
