It was almost two weeks ago that we heard that AMD reduced the price of its RX 6000 series cards, but now we realize that this was not true at all.

After Nvidia unveiled its RTX 40 series cards at a higher price than the previous generation cards, the company's CEO claimed that the era of price cuts is over and we are not going to see anything like this for Nvidia cards. In the meantime, the news of the price reduction of AMD graphics cards caused quite a stir. But it seems that this issue is nothing more than a rumor, and the chart that was published about the price of AMD's RX 6000 series cards was related to their price in the Newegg online store. It was covered by TechPowerUp and Wccftech, and even PCMag endorsed it. However, the PCMag website edited this news a little later by mentioning AMD's own words, so that we can be sure that there is no price reduction or discount for the RX 6000 series cards.

Comparison of price to performance ratio of AMD and Nvidia cards

One of AMD's spokespersons in a conversation with the source of this news website, Digital Trends, said that the company does not He did not intend to reduce the price of the mentioned graphics. He added that this leaked chart was the price list of these cards in the Newegg store from September 15.

Although AMD has never officially announced that it plans to reduce the price of its graphics cards, it is strange. It is not that we have seen many news sites quickly cover the news of RX 6000 series price reduction without being sure about it. It was at the end of August that we heard that the business partners of AMD and Nvidia have announced to these two companies that they are ready to reduce the price of graphics cards. Nvidia slightly reduced the price of its cards in July, and since graphics cards were produced in excess of the required number, this price reduction was expected to continue.

On the other hand, this chart is exactly two days. It was released after AMD announced that it would be unveiling its RX 7000 series cards on November 3rd. It is usually the case that when a new generation of a product enters the market, the price of the old generations is reduced to make room for the presence of new representatives in the market. This issue, along with the price reduction of Nvidia cards and also the excessive production of graphics cards, caused many news sites to quickly publish the news of the price reduction of AMD cards, while this was not true at all.

Although this is a misunderstanding, the problem is exactly the same. For two weeks, users thought that the price of AMD cards had dropped until the company itself announced two days ago that this was not true. Of course, the price of the products often depends on the retailers, but the price announced by the company has a great influence in determining its approximate amount.

In general, the price of graphics cards has decreased significantly compared to the last few months and it is strange. It's not like AMD will sell its cards at a lower price than it originally announced. But it should be kept in mind that if there is a price reduction, it is only because of very low demand, not a decision that this company made spontaneously.
