The first official photos of AMD’s refreshed Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards have hit the web. If you’re one of those people who prefer black shrouds, you should really love how the Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT look, as AMD decided to recycle its Midnight Black design for its upcoming cards. That design originally debuted with the special edition Radeon RX 6800 XT, which launched in April last year (and sold out immediately). AMD’s RDNA 2 refresh will reportedly launch on May 10.

According to the information we received, three new models are now set to launch on May 10th, not on April 20th as previously reported. The date has therefore been pushed back, but no reason has been stated by the source. Furthermore, the RX 6400 for the DIY market is also set to officially launch on the same day.
What all those cards have in common are the new memory spec of 18 Gbps, however we are still in a process of confirming the exact changes that were applied to those new SKU. Higher boost clocks and higher board power is still on a table.
It is also worth noticing that RX 6650XT has a new cooler design. It is no longer a single-fan design, but a dual-fan. Therefore, it matches the configuration of almost all custom RX 6600 XT models, but this might have been required to meet new power and performance requirements for this SKU.
