AMD is not going to lower the prices of its GPUs

Almost two weeks ago, AMD published a table of contents showing alleged price drops for all cards in its RX 6000 range. It seemed to be a response to the high prices of the RTX 4090. It turns out that these price cuts are not official, but are the prices in the American store Newegg.

Portals like DigitalTrends and TechPowerUp proclaimed that AMD was going to lower the prices of the Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards. But in reality, it's not about any price cut.

No, AMD is not going to lower the prices of the RX 6000

An AMD spokesperson shared the same statement with several portals, including Digital Trends.

AMD has not lowered the price/MSRP of the Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. The chart we provided, which is included in the article, simply listed the latest retail prices in US dollars on the Newegg portal as of 15 September 2022.

In late August, reports began to circulate that AMD and Nvidia partners were preparing to cut GPU prices to start liquidating them for the new GPU generations. Nvidia had already made a round of price cuts in July. Given the oversupply of graphics cards that was being caused by the GPU shortage, it was only natural that more price cuts would follow.

The graphic that has given so much to talk about was published two days after AMD announced that it would launch its RX 7000 graphics cards on November 3. It is quite normal that when a new generation of computer components is approaching, be it GPUs, RAM or CPUs, see price cuts on the previous generation to make way for new GPUs on store shelves and for retailers to get cash. Added to this this time are several reports of excess inventory and a downward trend in GPU prices in general. Thus, numerous portals believed that it was a general price drop. It does not mean that it is not possible to find AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPUs at lower prices than the official ones, but they will be unofficial prices, set by those same stores that expect to receive new generation GPUs in a few weeks and need liquidity and space in their warehouses.
