Preliminary submission to the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office reveals that Sapphire is ready for a big AMD RX 6000 series launch.
No, Sapphire did not just confirm Radeon RX 6950 series
Sapphire, a premium AMD board partner, who is responsible for AMD Radeon RX 6000 series reference design production, has recently submitted multiple Radeon 6000 codenames to the EEC regulatory office. Those codenames are submitted regularly *just in case* AMD ever wants to launch more graphics cards. This does not mean that AMD confirmed to Sapphire that these cards will launch.
AMD has so far only confirmed to board partners Navi 21 (Radeon RX 6900/6800), Navi 22 (Radeon RX 6700), and Navi 23 (SKU names unconfirmed). There is currently no information on the XX50 refresh of any SKU.
In June last year, Sapphire made a similar submission with SKUs such as Radeon RX 5950 or 5850 series. Neither of those SKUs was ever released.
