AMD is planning to release a bunch of new Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards in the coming months ahead of the company’s first next-generation RDNA 3 GPUs, according to leaker Greymon55. They include Radeon RX 6X50 XT models, which should comprise refreshed, higher-performance versions of AMD’s current Navi 21 and Navi 22 products, as well as a non-XT version of red team’s critically maligned Radeon RX 6500. These will supposedly show up in the months of June/July and May, respectively.

AMD preparing Radeon RX 6X50XT refresh for June/July, RX 6500 non-XT expected in May (VideoCardz):

  • This leaker, who had 3 different nicknames in the past (and which is why some of you may not recognize him) has already correctly predicted specs and previous launch dates from AMD.
  • This card [RX 6500 non-XT] features 6nm Navi 24 GPU with 768 Stream Processors. It is equipped with 4GB GDDR6 64-bit memory. If both SKUs were to share the specs, this might actually be the first RDNA2 card for DIY market not requiring any power connectors (sub 75W power).
  • These new series [Radeon RX 6X50 XT] are supposedly introducing 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory to more models in the series, while currently, it is exclusive to RX 6500XT/RX6900XT LC models.
