    Good for them. Aibs have too much profit Right now so AMD wants cut on that pie .

    Doubt it will change anything in total card price. Their cost is absurd right now and AMD slice is to small.


    As for gamers? We are the lasts and least important customer ..... Get used to that. One they it will all fall apart along with crypto . Maybe then ya all get nice 200 dollar mid range GPU.

    Quite funny that AMD raised its prices this late and only because TSMC raised its own first, which we know is a fact. Meanwhile the AIBs already increased their prices shamelessly ages ago when they realised the miners' threshold of pain is really high. But business is business. Nevertheless, since this situation is supposed to remain unchanged for another year still, I wonder when the game studios will start to feel the punishment. I only bought two games this years, one of them extremely heavily discounted and the other from a small studio for a cheap price. I won't even look at new AAA games with my dusty old graphics card. And I'm not getting a new card with the current for-miners-only prices. Maybe I'm an exception, but maybe not.

    2021 and then some. I struggle to find much positive to say about the past 4-5 years or so, the universe has some serious downward momentum at the moment :p

    At this rate I expect the 8400gs to re-release next year at $500.

    Dunno if it's only me but i tend to take anything starting with "According to a forum post by member" with a big grain of salt.

    Considering right now the prices are inflated by the vendors or resellers, due to lack of stock (if they sell at MSRP).
    This should mainly move 10%~ of the MSRP income from the vendor to AMD.

    Once we all start buying GPUs at MSRP price, it will affect us as well.

    "miner threshold of pain " I like that .

    Only that is not high . Sky is the limit (or maybe space).

    I really feel lucky that I paid 800 euros for a 6800 5 months ago, the prices in Greece have always been tragic but now they are becoming ridiculous

    Neighbour, believe it or not 6800 and 6900 prices are even worse here in Serbia, but that PNY 3090 price you have there is just insane! :eek:

    That reminds me. I'd better blast all the dust from the fans on my old, aging, yet active video card. Must delay any massive coronary on the old coot until new cards reduce in price.

    I'm gonna wait for the GPU crash of 203x... then buy a GPU. Until then, we can just make due with upscaling to 4K/OLED.

    You are not the exception.
    I have been wondering when the game developers would weigh in on this.
    They too, stand to lose potential sales since some folks cannot play games with the older hardware.
    I wrote a reply on the forums about eight months ago highlighting this very issue.
    AMD has the most to lose if prices continue along this track.
    Most people build a computer based around the videocard capability.
    Without access to one, they usually won't see a need to upgrade or even build a new computer.
    Since AMD sells other components such as CPUs, motherboard chipsets, etc..they stand to potentially lose the addditional revenue from stagnant sales due to lack of upgrading.
