Did an AMD board partner reveal RTG’s upcoming round of higher-performance Radeon GPUs? Hong Kong- and Taiwan-based manufacturer AFOX has submitted multiple SKUs to the Eurasian Economic Commission’s (EEC) website, and the filing includes four particularly interesting entries: the Radeon RX 5950 XT, RX 5950, RX 5900, and RX 5800 XT.

Before Radeon fans get too excited, there’s the possibility that these entries are just placeholders. As mentioned by VideoCardz, SAPPHIRE submitted a similar lineup to the EEC back in June 2019, and the nature of that list suggested that SAPPHIRE was merely being thorough with its trademark registrations (obviously, AMD didn’t launch anything more powerful than the RX 5700 XT last year, either).

AMD is undoubtedly prepping a new group of high-performance cards that can tackle NVIDIA’s upper echelon, however, so SKUs like the Radeon RX 5800 XT seem inevitable. The real question is whether or not these GPUs will represent “Big Navi.” These could ultimately be released as RX 6000 cards, or as a new series entirely (e.g., RX Vega, R9 Fury).

The wait for “Big Navi” may not be that far off. During CES 2020, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su spoke of Radeon fans’ yearning for a high-end Navi part and how important that market is to the company.
