The launch of the upcoming RDNA 2 based GPUs is on the cards for AMD, and in the middle of all this, it seems the last year’s AMD mid-range GPUs are likely to be discontinued. In fact, both RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT were the best-selling 1440p gaming GPUs in the market because of their incredible price-to-performance ratios.
As Videocardz points out, according to Cowcotland, AMD will no longer be manufacturing graphics processors for Radeon RX 5700 series. So, the current ones available in the market will be some last Navi 10 cards, which is why we have seen inflation in prices.
Later, Videocardz updated its article to confirm that Radeon RX 5700 XT will not be discontinued totally, but the card will be manufactured at least till Q1 2021. The lower RX 5700, on the other hand, will only be available on special orders, so AMD isn’t focusing anymore on its older RDNA based GPUs.
This is true because the upcoming RDNA 2 based GPUs shall deliver much better performance than last-gen and come with multiple variants. Naturally, AMD is focusing on the new RX 6000 series GPUs launching on October 28th and will be available from November.
However, AMD has no intention of discontinuing the Radeon RX 5600 XT GPU along with the budget Radeon RX 500 series and Radeon RX 5500 GPUs.
