Why are ATI cards so expensive now?

I was looking to upgrade my GTX750ti to a R9 NANO the form factor is right and it would be a marked increase in performance,,but the prices are insane.

Even the rx550  is more expensive and offers no performance increase.

I prefer ATI cards, but i feel like i'm currently being forced to to purchase a Nividia

ATI card have always been a tad more expensive and i have always felt they were worth the small increased price difference.

But now,, they seem to be way more expensive.

So why are ATI cards so much more expensive now?

Re: Why are ATI cards so expensive now?

AMD's Vega problem: 3 packages, 2 HBM2 manufacturers, 1 (awful) cooler​ is why Vega is more expensive than higher performing nVidia cards, and cryptocurrency miners are why the RX 500 series are unavailable. It's a bad time to be a PC gamer.
