We all know there is a massive graphics card shortage that is being blamed on the rise of cryptocurrency mining, but now we're seeing companies sell 6 packs of graphics cards in a bundle on both Amazon and Newegg.

The 6 x GPU bundles arrive in both Team Green and Team Red combos, with 6 x GTX 1060 Founders Edition cards from EVGA costing $3780, while 6 x MSI Aero ITX OC GTX 1060s (which are great for mining) cost $3465. There's also the higher-end 6 x GTX 1080s for $6300, which is quite insane.

 

AMD isn't left out of the 6-card bundles, with a 6 x RX 580 4GB pack for $3600, the higher-end MSI Armor RX 580 8GB cards cost $3990 in a 6-pack.

 

Buying the 6 packs aren't necessarily cheaper, but with retailers setting purchasing limits of 1 or 2 graphics cards right now, this is an easy way for serious crypto miners to just jump right into the game with 6-card bundles.
