AMD’s RX 6950XT, 6750XT, and 6650XT GPUs are actually on sale for $399 and up

enlarge Three new, however principally well-known GPUs are actually out there from AMD.


Beginning at this time, AMD and plenty of GPU makers will start rolling out three new graphics playing cards within the Radeon 6000 sequence. These new merchandise add a “50” suffix to present mannequin numbers, and if you happen to’ve been following AMD over time, you’ll be able to most likely guess what meaning.

The RX 6950XT, RX 6750XT, and RX 6650XT go to retail at this time at instructed minimal costs of $1,099, $549, and $399, respectively. Every GPU comes with almost an identical specs to their predecessors with the “00” suffix, with the one GPU distinction a factory-level enhance for clock speeds and reminiscence speeds.

Infinity Cache once more, but in addition very finite clock changes

In a press convention forward of at this time’s bulletins, AMD representatives instructed the good points are due partially to tweaks at each the silicon and software program ranges, though two of the GPUs will even see a wattage soar concerned. The 6950XT now requires 335W TDP, a 35W improve over its 6900XT predecessor, and we’re at 180W TDP for the 6650XT, which is a 20W soar over the 6600XT.

Take a look at AMD's three latest GPUs from a slightly different angle.
enlarge Check out AMD’s three newest GPUs from a barely totally different angle.


The soar from the RX 6900XT to the RX 6950XT yields 2.6 % larger enhance clocks and seven.8 % larger reminiscence clocks; all different GPU components, particularly AMD’s hefty allocations of L3 “Infinity Cache”, stay an identical between the 2 fashions. An identical story performs out for the opposite 50-series jumps: lower than 1 % larger enhance clocks for the 6750XT and 1.8 % larger enhance clocks for the 6650XT.

The slight soar in clocks suggests AMD could also be introducing new fashions to interchange the previous ones, however AMD instructed Ars Technica that the RX 6900XT and RX 6700XT will proceed to be offered, with the RX 6600XT being phased out as soon as present inventory is cleared. (For a minimize to that degree, AMD will proceed to promote the RX 6600.) AMD produces its personal direct variations of the RX 6950XT and RX 6750XT, however not the 6650XT; all three are made and offered by the same old collection of widespread Add-In Board (AIB) GPU companions.

With no assessment {hardware} in our palms, we’re left questioning how a lot these minor spec bumps are forward of comparable “00” fashions. For some trendy GPU clients, that sort of comparability might not be related; the older fashions, like most trendy GPUs, offered out extremely rapidly amid a crypto increase, however lately stabilizing GPU costs imply you may find yourself shopping for a “50” mannequin for much less.

Crew Purple vs. Crew Inexperienced, once more

At that time, it is the same old story of the bond between AMD and Nvidia. AMD’s total lead in clock speeds, VRAM allocations and L3 cache by value vary offers the RX 6000 sequence playing cards an edge over comparatively priced Nvidia GPUs in sure video games, whereas Nvidia’s playing cards outperform AMD in choose uncooked benchmarks or advance once they can lean on superior ray tracing efficiency or the silicon-based wizardry of Nvidia’s RTX-exclusive Deep Studying Tremendous-Sampling (DLSS).

AMD is utilizing the present rollout of latest GPUs to push again this final level, because it has additionally confirmed that its FidelityFX Tremendous Decision (FSR) system will lastly be upgraded to a “2.0” model beginning Thursday, Might 12. beforehand instructed, Bethesda’s 2021 shooter dying loop will solely get the most recent taste of FSR in a patch this week, after which eagle-eyed avid gamers can straight evaluate DLSS and FSR 2.0 as the sport helps each requirements. AMD says it expects patches within the coming months so as to add FSR 2.0 to PC video games like groundedEVE On-lineand Microsoft Flight Simulator (which will even get its personal DLSS particular patch).

All RX 6000 sequence GPUs can use any present or future model of FSR, whereas Nvidia GPUs courting again to the GTX 1070 and GTX 16 sequence are additionally suitable with the usual. We stay up for the dying loop patch is coming later this week and I am curious to see how the temporal strategy to decision upsampling has improved over the noticeably blurry FSR 1.0 model up to now – and the way the replace compares to the machine studying mannequin Nvidia makes use of for its personal proprietary normal.
