On average, as of the first half of October, “red” cards have risen in price by 9 percentage points relative to September, and “green” – by 2 percentage points. After a noticeable drop in prices in July, the cost of graphics accelerators began to rise again at a rather rapid pace, despite the fact that AMD and NVIDIA are working hard to meet demand.

If in the summer the Radeon RX 6000 video cards were on average sold at prices 53% higher than the recommended ones, then as of October 10, their cost is close to March, when prices were 88% higher than the recommended ones. According to 3DCenter, prices for Radeon RX 6000 series models are now 83% higher than recommended prices on average.
