AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series has been on the market since the end of 2020 and has only just become popular in the entry-level segment. Now, allegedly detailed improved new editions could follow.
As part of the past home electronics trade fair CES 2022, AMD presented, among other things, the new entry-level models Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 in 6 nm production, as well as new mobile GPUs with RX 6X50 nomenclature and also the performance-limited RX 6000S Series in response to Nvidia’s Max-Q series. According to Videocardz.com, given AMD’s recent lack of presence in the laptop GPU market, these announcements came across as quite impressive, but also somewhat confusing given the introduction of two entirely new product sub-series within the existing line-up.
According to a new rumor, something similar could now happen with the desktop range of the Radeon RX 6000 series (“Radeon RX 6X50”), where you can also see a 6nm reboot of some Navi 2X GPUs and possibly higher wattage models as well could expect with increased memory speed. The Twitter user “Greymon55”, who is known for his leaks, has not yet been able to find any details on this, but the increase in memory speed is said to be the most likely, especially since AMD already offers cards with 18 Gbps.
With the launch of the Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 earlier this month, AMD also completed its lineup downwards for the first time in a long time, offering four GPUs within the same architecture in a series for the first time in years, the report notes . Meanwhile, a look at the complete RX 6000 lineup shows the relatively low participation of the Navi 22 GPU, which has already been discussed as a possible 6 nm refresh – possibly also as part of the upcoming Radeon RX 7000 series. There are no leaks or other details on this yet.
