Remember how AMD’s Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics cards were originally intended to launch with 12 Gbps memory but upgraded to 14 Gbps at the eleventh hour? Manufacturers definitely do, as they had to release updated firmware (or begin planning for brand-new SKUs) at the very last minute.
Consumers may have missed this last-ditch counter against NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 price reduction, however, so AMD has officially branded the Radeon RX 5600 XT as a 14 Gbps card, which can be spotted on the GPU’s official landing page. AMD has also set up a separate site that lists all SKUs eligible for the 14 Gbps graphics memory speed update, and how to get it from their respective manufacturers.
“A list of Radeon RX 5600 XT models available with 14 Gbps graphics memory speed is below,” AMD wrote. “Updated Radeon RX 5600 XT models from several manufacturers are now available for purchase from leading etailers/retailers. Other models can be updated by following the instructions on the manufacturer websites listed below. This list will be updated as more models are added and further instructions become available.”
