AMD will reportedly launch its next lineup of Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards in April. The rumor comes from hardware leaker Yuko Yoshida, who claims that these new GPUs will target 1080p gaming with 32 Compute Units, 64 MB of Infinity Cache, and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. Pricing is listed as CNY 2,499, which translates to around $383.

As for the code name listed, “Dimgray Cavefish” would suggest that these Radeon RX 6600 or Radeon RX 6500 Series graphics cards will leverage red team’s Navi 23 GPU, the schematics of which were teased by Igor Wallossek back in December. The mobile variants are said to feature TGPs of 65 watts, 80 watts, and 90 watts.

“Navi 23 should, as far as further exclusive leaks and documents from the manufacturer’s environment are correct, rely on a 128-bin memory interface with eight independent memory channels, to which up to four and in x16 mode up to eight identical GDDR6 memory modules can be connected,” Wallossek wrote last year. “The chips should support DirectX12 feature level 12_1, Vulcan 1.1, OpenGL 4.6 and OpenCL 2.2. Furthermore AMD Liquid VR should be supported.”

“A total of 5 display outputs support DP 1.4a (or 4x DP + 1x USB-C), HDMI 2.1 and SL-DVI. If the information is correct, there will be a VP9 decoder, a HEVC decoder, an H.264 decoder and a VC1 decoder for hardware-based video acceleration. PCI-Express should be supported in version 4 with up to 8 lanes and 16 GT/s.”
