AMD RDNA2 desktop refresh with faster memory arriving on April 20?

According to Chiphell leaker “热心市民描边怪/Enthusiastic Citizen” AMD is set to announce as many as three new desktop graphics cards either on April 20th or 21st. 

It should be noted that “Enthusiastic Citizen” is not a random member of the Chiphell forums, but a well established leaker, normally focusing on unreleased CPU launches. With this relatively good track record, one must assume that the newest information shared on the Chinese discussion board is at least based on embargoed information, and not a random rumor.

According to the Citizen, AMD is set to launch its RDNA2 desktop refresh known as Radeon RX 6X50XT series either on April 20th or 21st. There are three cards to be expected: 6950XT, 6750XT and 6650XT, all to be equipped with faster 18 Gbps GDDR6 memory.

Furthermore, it is mentioned that AMD’s slowest RDNA2 model called RX 6400 based on Navi 24 GPU, might make its way to the DIY market. Currently it is only available to system integrators and OEMs. This is the only low-profile model without power connectors in the entire Radeon 6000 series. This SKU was previously rumored to launch as RX 6500 non-XT, so there is apparently still some confusion surrounding this graphics card model.

As for 6X50XT series, the flagship RX 6950XT model is supposedly set to compete with the upcoming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti SKU. This card will not only feature faster 18 Gbps memory, but also increased TDP to 350W (so 50W over the original specs).

Not much is known about the RX 6750XT and 6650XT though, other than they are also set to feature 18 Gbps memory as well and likely increased power consumption as a result. It is likely that the RX 6750XT might be set to compete with Intel Arc A780 model, which should launch in the coming weeks as well.
