AMD today announced a refresh for the current RX 6000 GPU lineup. The newest models include the RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT. They do not differ much from their non-50 siblings but come with noticeable core clock bumps. The improved specs combined with the latest Radeon Software drivers provide up to 13% performance uplifts and up to 14% in specific games when paired with the latest Ryzen processors.
The RX 6950 XT leads the pack of three new GPU models from AMD. The company claims it is the most powerful graphics card in the Radeon RX 6000 Series family. It delivers "incredible performance and breathtaking visuals for the most demanding AAA and esports titles in 4K." The only difference between the RX 6950 XT and the old RX 6900 XT is increased core clocks to 2.1GHz and a slightly higher TDP at 335W. Price-wise, the RX 6950 XT should start at $1099.
Here is how the RX 6950 XT compares with the Nvidia RTX 3090 and 3090 Ti (via VideoCardz):
The RX 6750 XT is a mid-range option for gamers who want to get the best visuals and performance in 1440p. Compared to the RX 6700 XT, the newest model has a slightly faster core, memory, and a higher TDP at 250W. The MSRP is $549, which is $70 more expensive than the RX 6700 XT.
AMD claims the RX 6750 XT should be faster than Nvidia's RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 Ti.
Finally, the RX 6650 XT provides "ultra-smooth, high-refresh rate 1080p gaming with max settings in the latest titles." Improvements in this graphics card focus on faster core clocks, faster memory, and an increased TDP. AMD also changed the pricing, and the RX 6650 XT comes with the $399 MSRP, a $20 bump compared to the RX 6600 XT.
Despite having less memory than the Nvidia RTX 3060, the RX 5560 XT should provide better framerates across many popular titles.
