AMD launches Radeon RX 6950XT, 6750XT and 6650XT graphics cards
AMD introduces its new RDNA2 desktop graphics cards
The last update before moving to RDNA3?
AMD Radeon RX 6950XT is a new flagship Radeon graphics card featuring the Navi 21 KXTX GPU. This is the full implementation of the best RDNA2 desktop GPU with 5120 stream processors and 80 ray accelerators. The card will come with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, now clocked at 18Gbps. Faster memory and increased board power to 335W are the main changes introduced in this SKU.
The company is pretty clear with its marketing materials that the RX 6950XT has to compete with the non-Ti RTX 3090 model. However, we also managed to get comparisons with RTX 3090 Ti. AMD RX 6950XT retails for $1099, which is $100 more than the RX 6900XT at launch.

AMD Radeon RX 6750XT is a Navi 22 based SKU with 2560 stream processors, 12GB of 18Gbps GDDR6 memory and 250W TBP. In terms of design and power, this part could be an alternative (not a replacement) to the non-XT Radeon RX 6800 GPU, which is one of AMD’s least-supplied GPUs. According to the manufacturer, the RX 6750XT will directly compete with the GeForce RTX 3070 series. Price-wise, this card will cost $549, which is a lot more than what we’re used to seeing on the Radeon x700 series.

Finally, the RX 6650XT, based on a full Navi 23 GPU, will take the non-TI RTX 3060 model while requiring 10W more power. This is the only card in the new lineup to come with 17.5 Gbit/s memory. It will cost $399, which is $20 more than the RX 6600 XT SKU.

The AMD RX 6950XT and RX 6750XT reference designs will be available from the AMD store later today. However, this launch focuses on partner cards, where stock has been changing over the past few weeks, so the availability of those cards should be pretty good. At the same time, AMD will be lifting the embargo on reviews, so expect a lot more information in just a few hours.
