AMD RDNA 2 Refresh to bring Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT & RX 6750 XT Graphics Cards With 18 Gbps Memory and 7nm node

AMD is planning an update of its RDNA 2 GPUs, including three new Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards aimed at the high-end gaming market. Around the middle of 2022, a new RDNA 2 upgrade for AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards is expected (June-July).

So far, the reports have just said that they’ll get a graphics and memory clock boost, but Moore’s Law is Dead claims that his sources have confirmed that these chips will stick to a 7nm production node and won’t use the newer 6nm RDNA 2 design found in the Navi 24 and other mobile GPUs.

As per previous reports, the AMD Radeon RX 6000 RDNA 2 update graphics cards are known as the RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, and RX 6750 XT, and these will be the final names until AMD decides otherwise.

The AMD Navi 21 and Navi 22 GPUs will be updated for the Radeon RX 6X50XT series. On the desktop platform, the AMD Navi 21 GPU drives the Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6800, while the Navi 22 GPU powers the RX 6700 XT. If AMD follows the same GPU naming pattern as their mobile portfolio, their successors will be called the Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, and RX 6750 XT when they arrive in Q2 2022.

Currently, all cards include 16 Gbps memory dies, except the future RX 6500 XT and the top RX 6900 XT LC. Although the increase to 18 Gbps may provide more bandwidth and improve performance by 2-5 percent, it does not show a significant difference with the updated series. AMD does not appear to be considering the Navi 23 GPUs for the upgrade because they are more mainstream and were just released, as opposed to the higher-end models, which have been available for over a year.

It might have been worthwhile if AMD had given its existing desktop GPUs the 6nm treatment and managed to squeeze out additional performance efficiency, but that isn’t happening. This soft refresh appears to be a very quiet update that will only be available through AIB cards.

There would also be a tiny price difference, and the TGP numbers are projected to increase significantly as faster memory chips are added. These GPUs will almost certainly compete with Intel’s upcoming high-end ARC Alchemist GPUs.
