In last couple of days, a report surfaced the web that Nvidia GPUs may go through increase in price later this year, the same issue come to AMD RX Vega. This effect is due to RAM manufacturers, deviating their resources from PC hardware manufacturing to mobile market. Samsung and SK Hynix are top brands supplying RAM for GPUs to Nvidia and AMD.
This deviation of discourse of tech giants from PC to mobile market may surge the availability of RAM. This in turn will cause the shortage of graphics card, and Nvidia alone will not suffer, but AMD may also go through it.
A recent report from AMD regarding resupply of the limited stock of AMD RX Vega 56 and AMD RX Vega 64 shares the following concern:
Radeon RX Vega 64 demand continues to exceed expectations. AMD is working closely with its partners to address this demand. Our initial launch quantities included standalone Radeon RX Vega 64 at SEP of $499, Radeon RX Vega 64 Black Packs at SEP of $599, and Radeon RX Vega 64 Aqua Packs at SEP of $699. We are working with our partners to restock all SKUs of Radeon RX Vega 64 including the standalone cards and Gamer Packs over the next few weeks, and you should expect quantities of Vega to start arriving in the coming days
Previously, reviewing the current scenario of limited RX Vega stock, a report from OC UK’s Gibbo said that, not only Radeon RX Vega 64 will see a price hike of least $100 but Radeon RX Vega 56 will also climb the price point higher than MSRP.
The audience is so categorized these days that you can not differentiate between a gamer and a miner. AMD RX Vega 56 sold out in minutes once the embargo on its sale was lifted.
There was enthusiasts waiting eagerly to buy and test the GPU. Then there were opportunists, who just wanted to buy the graphics card so that to sell it later and a high price above MSRP. In last, there were miners, who potentially wanted to get the most number of RX Vega 56 GPUs so as to use in mining.
