Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.

AMD Radeon is making a push in a mid-range segment.

Radeon RX 5600 XT and RX 5500 XT

Radeon RX 5600 XT

This is the first post where we mention the Radeon RX 5600 series. We have confirmed that at least two board partners are working on Radeon RX 5600 XT. The new Radeon would feature GDDR6 memory, which basically means that the full Radeon 5000 series lineup will stick to newer memory technology. This would be an advantage over Geforce GTX 16 series, which also features GDDR5-based models.

The information on Radeon RX 5600 series is limited, but we do know it has 6GB GDDR6 memory (most likely paired with 192-bit bus). It is, however, too early to speculate on the GPU variant that this card might use.

We have been told that Radeon RX 5600 XT is expected to launch early next year (possibly in January).

Radeon RX 5500 XT

Meanwhile, Radeon RX 5500 XT will be available in two variants: 4GB and 8GB. So far we have been unable to confirm the non-XT variant coming to board partners. In other words, the 5500 non-XT might end up as an OEM-exclusive, while the XT should only be available through AMD board partners.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT is expected to launch next week. We are in the process of confirming the exact specs and pricing.
