AMD Vows to Ramp Up Production of its Radeon RX 6000 GPUs

AMD RX 6600

AMD announced its latest earnings at a conference recently and in the conference, AMD CEO Lisa Su has vowed to increase the production of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 RDNA 2 Gaming graphics cards which have been in limited supply ever since they launched back in the last quarter of 2020.

Both AMD and NVIDIA have been facing severe supply issues since the end of last year. The reason behind this is due to several constraints due to the pandemic which is hindering the production process and the rise of crypto mining again. TSMC has been at near 100% production capacity and yet, GPU manufacturers have been unable to meet the huge demand in the consumer segment.

Lisu Su said that AMD expects to ramp production for its Radeon RX 6000 gaming graphics cards in the next quarter.

We expect Radeon 6000 Series GPU sales to grow significantly over the coming quarters as we ramp production.

We see good customer ordering patterns and strong backlog. And then we have also seen that the supply chain has been tight overall for the semiconductor industry. And we’ve been working very closely with our supply chain partners. And so we also have good visibility to additional supply as we go throughout the year.

And whether you’re talking about consoles or you’re talking about PC gaming or you’re talking about the overall sort of gaming ecosystem, there’s a significant demand. And so we believe there’s strong demand, and we’re continuing to ramp supply to meet that.

We’re happy with the progress. I think gamers really appreciate the product. It’s fair to say that the graphics demand is very high across the marketplace. So we’ve actually put quite a bit of product into the market, but the demand still exceeds supply.

Lisu Su also says that the demand for the RX 6000 gaming is still expected to exceed the supply as said by the Industry analysts who have hinted that the GPU supply issues will persist till the end of 2021 and we can expect things to normalize around early-2022.

AMD also plans to introduce its mobility RX 6000M series GPUs for laptops soon which will further put stress on its ability to offer gaming GPUs for the desktop segment.
