AMD raises the prices of Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards by as much as 10%.  It will be a sad holiday for GPU seekersThe period before Christmas is very turbulent for all producers and distributors of technological innovations. This time is usually marked by increased demand and numerous sell-offs, but the current market situation indicates that those who are looking for a new graphics card will have a hard time. Despite the fact that the new generation systems were presented many months ago, obtaining them at a reasonable price is almost a miracle. Worse, there is no sign that things will get any better anytime soon. The situation in the Red camp is particularly bad, as evidenced by the fact that AMD has increased the prices of its chips.

In fact, increases in this period should not come as a surprise. The AMD Radeon RX 6000 series of chipsets has already increased by 9% in November compared to the previous month, so further increases were predictable.
