The Red team surprised everyone last year with the launch of RDNA 2 based RX 6000 series GPUs that outperformed NVIDIA’s RTX 30-series GPUs for the first time, going head-to-head with NVIDIA. This in itself a huge achievement for team Red and having reviewed all the cards, I can tell you, these RDNA 2 GPUs are really powerful.
However, AMD’s main problem has had to tackle is with stocks; yes, these GPUs are found in very limited quantity. Thus, helping scalpers increase prices and the global chip crisis just worsens the situation even more, so, even though these RX 6000 series GPUs are great, finding them at the right prices might give you nightmares.
Having posted an amazing Q1 2021 revenue figure, AMD CEO Dr Lisa Su was keen to speak up on the current situation of the company’s GPU stocks. She stated that the current Radeon RX 6000 gaming graphics cards demand still exceeds supply and the same thing has been heard by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang as well.
Obviously, the demands have exceeded a lot, and AMD’s overall improvement in raw graphics performance is insane, and seeing the current situation, gamers have become more desperate than ever. AMD has acknowledged that graphics revenue for Q1 2021 increased with a double-digit percentage gain versus the previous year.
Though AMD promises to increase production, until and unless both AMD and NVIDIA meet the insane demand, prices won’t decrease as they will illicitly be sold at higher price points. It is still expected that GPU supply issues will persist till the end of 2021 and could finally end by next year.
