AMD’s lineup of RDNA 2 desktop graphics cards is about to get more complicated.
That’s according to a tweet from recurring leaker Greymon55, who claimed this morning that red team has hatched a plan to introduce new versions of its Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. While the leaker could not provide any specifics on their potential improvements, one speculation is that they might offer faster, 18 Gbps memory.
AMD seems to be preparing a new version of the RX 6000 series, I don't know the details, maybe an upgrade to 18Gbps?— Greymon55 (@greymon55) January 17, 2022
“AMD seems to be preparing a new version of the RX 6000 series,” Greymon55 tweeted. “I don’t know the details, maybe an upgrade to 18Gbps?”
As noted by publications such as VideoCardz, AMD developing newer versions of Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards with 18 Gbps memory doesn’t seem like a stretch, as AMD already offers cards that meet this specification. Those would include the liquid-cooled Radeon RX 6900 XT, which is exclusive to OEMs.
“At CES 2022 the company updated its mobile portfolio by introducing its first 6nm entry-level cards, even faster Navi 22 models with higher TGP,” VideoCardz noted in its coverage. “According to this new rumor, the same could happen with the Radeon RX 6000 series, where one could expect a 6nm refresh of some Navi 2X GPU and possibly higher-wattage models as well as cards with increased memory speed.”
