AMD has yet to reveal any official information on its upcoming GPUs or the RX 7000 series price. However, all the current leaks and rumors suggest a potential increase throughout the RX 7000 series line.
The GPU market is not easily predictable. The ongoing components shortage and increased demand have moved prices a lot. In 2021, we saw people paying double and even triple the MSRP for the RX 6000 series GPUs. Then, prices started to go down at the beginning of 2022. The market started to normalize and many hoped it would keep that way until the RTX 4090 was released at an exorbitant MSRP.
The most conservative approximations determine that the RX 7000 series price could hike up 20% respective to the previous 6000 series. Last year we saw Radeon RX prices starting from $159 for the low-end GPUs and up to $1,099 for the high-end RX 6950 XT. That being said, the new Radeon RX 7900 XT could be set at an MSRP of around $1,299.
Is it a good time to buy GPU?
Although the starting price of Nvidia’s GPUs has increased, it’s still possible that overall GPU costs decrease by the end of Q4 2022. As a matter of fact, according to Jon Peddie Research GPU market shipments decreased by -12.7% sequentially and decreased by -32% year to year, which is shown in the continued decrease in retail prices for graphics cards.
Due to this continued decrease, we can see changes in the MSRP of the RX 6000 series as shown below:
|New Price||Old Price|
|RX 6950 XT||$949||$1,099|
|RX 6900 XT||$699||$999|
|RX 6800 XT||$599||$649|
|RX 6750 XT||$419||$549|
|RX 6700 XT||$379||$479|
|RX 6650 XT||$299||$399|
|RX 6500 XT 4GB||$169||$199|
Even though prices for new releases might go up, they’ll eventually fall or be mitigated with constant heavy discounts. The truth is that all we have for now is rumors and hearsay. We will have to wait until November 3rd to see what’s the official statement from AMD. What’s clear is that the new AMD 7000 series will be, as always, cheaper than Nvidia’s RTX GPUs.
