The Radeon RX 6000 series may continue to sell for well above MSRP, but AMD is pushing their prices even further. Reportedly, AMD is to push higher TSMC wafer costs onto AIBs, with 10% price increases felt across all Radeon RX 6000 GPUs.

The cost of current-generation graphics cards has been on the rise in recent months, as we reported earlier this week. Now, a report from Boards Channels forums alleges that prices could move even further away from AMD's MSRP, as the screenshot below shows.

Reputedly, AMD will increase the price of its Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs by 10%, equivalent to between US$20 and US$40 more per card. AMD will apply this new pricing from its next shipment of GPUs to its Add-In board partners (AIBs), which sell custom versions of its RDNA 2-based cards. In some instances, AIBs are the only option for purchasing new AMD graphics cards, such as the RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT.

VideoCardz speculates that this price change will be effective in up to two weeks. However, nothing is stopping AIBs from increasing their prices before then. Supposedly, AMD decision to increase prices across the RX 6000 range fall on higher TSMC wafer costs. Unfortunately, we have no way of verifying this information.
