Rumors that AMD is going to release updated video cards of the Radeon RX 6000 series began to circulate back in January of this year. Today the VideoCardz portal has shared images of new products in a reference version and announced the timing of their announcement. It is reported that AMD will release at least three graphics accelerators, which are updated versions of current models: Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT and Radeon RX 6650 XT.
Information about video cards is still scarce. In the reference version, the cards will receive a new look, borrowed from the special version of the Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black accelerator, which AMD released last April . Its distinguishing feature is its all-black color scheme, instead of the silver/black of the original cards.
An interesting detail of the Radeon RX 6650 XT model will be a new dual-fan cooling system. Recall that the reference Radeon RX 6600 XT uses a cooler with a single fan. And the Radeon RX 6750 XT model will have a cooling system with three fans instead of two, as was the case with the Radeon RX 6700 XT.
At the moment, it is known that all three updated video cards will receive faster GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 18 Gb / s. In current versions, GDDR6 memory operates at a speed of 16 Gb / s. There is no information about the frequencies of the GPUs of the updated video cards yet. But it is noted that all of them are likely to receive a higher maximum power consumption figure.
According to the source, the release of the updated models of the Radeon RX 6000 video cards was originally scheduled for April 20. However, according to new data, it was postponed to May 10.
