AMD may launch Radeon RX 6×50 XT series in April

Previously, there were rumors that AMD will launch the Radeon RX 6×50 XT series graphics cards on the desktop platform. The new product is a high-clock version of the original Radeon RX 6000 series, which will be equipped with 18 Gbps video memory, but the GPU is still manufactured using the 7nm process. It is rumored that AMD will launch three Radeon RX 6×50 XT series graphics cards, namely Radeon RX 6950 XT/RX 6750 XT/RX 6650 XT, corresponding to Navi 21, Navi 22, and Navi 23 respectively.

According to Wccftech, AMD plans to release refresh products for these RDNA 2 architectures on April 20 or 21. Additionally, AMD may also push the Navi 24-based Radeon RX 6400 into the DIY market. As the lowest-end graphics card in the entire Radeon RX 6000 series, AMD has said that the Radeon RX 6400 is limited to the OEM market.

Although previous news pointed out that the Radeon RX 6×50 XT series may also be adjusted in terms of the clock, etc., it may only upgrade the memory. Increasing the memory rate from the current 15 Gbps to 18 Gbps, the memory bandwidth will increase accordingly, the TGP may be slightly improved, and the GPU performance is expected to be slightly higher than the existing counterparts.

The Radeon RX 6950 XT’s competitor should be Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, which is rumored to have a boost clock of over 2.5 GHz and an increased TDP to 350W. The latest news is that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be launched at the end of this month, even if the timing is accurate, it is two months later than originally planned.
