AMD to refresh its Navi 2X chips?

An interesting rumor has been shared by Greymon55 about the possible refresh of some Navi 2X chips.

According to the rumor from Greymon55, AMD could be planning to refresh its Navi 2X GPUs with the 6nm node to fill the void in the mid-range to an entry-level segment of the next Radeon RX 7000 series. While no product names or GPUs are named it is believed that Navi 22 and Navi 23 could be reused for Radeon RX 7600 series and below. There is probably no reason to expect a refresh of Navi 21, which would feature just as many cores as Navi 33, which is 5120.

AMD Navi 22 on the other hand, features 2560 Stream Processors, which might be a good choice for SKUs such as Radeon RX 7500 from the new series. The same leaker previously claimed that the Navi 4X GPU series based on RDNA4 microarchitecture might offer more GPU SKUs than the Navi 3X series. At this moment only three Navi 3X GPUs are expected: 31, 32, and 33.

At this point not much is known about Navi 4X GPUs, supposedly based on RDNA4 architecture, but the flagship Navi 41 GPU had already appeared in the leaks before. Meanwhile, the next generation of the Radeon series is to feature a mix of monolithic, MCM-based, and current-gen GPPU refreshes, assuming that the rumors are true.
