We had been hearing rumors about the flagship Radeon RX 6950XT coming in a new color and indeed those rumors are true. The new model is almost identical to the RX 6800XT Midnight Black Edition design. And from what we know, all the models of the new RX 6X50XT will be black.
Three new models are ready to be launched on 10th May including the RX 6950XT, RX 6750XT and RX 6650XT. This slightly varies from the previous launch date which was rumored to be 20th April. The models are now launching later than this expected date and so far we haven’t heard any reason for this delay. Additionally, the DIY model of RX 6400 will also be launching officially on the same day.
What sets this new family apart is that all the models come with a memory of 18 GBPS. Apart from this, we are still not sure about the other changes which are coming to the new SKU. We might be looking at a high board power and higher boost clocks.
Some specs might stay the same but what is noteworthy here is that the RX 6650XT comes with a new design which is much cooler. AMD Radeon has ditched the single-fan design for a better dual-fan design. We understand how this change would have been necessary pertaining to the new power and performance requirements on this model. The same goes for the RX 6750XT model which now comes with an additional third fan.
We are still waiting to hear more about the specs changes on the models but let us wait till the 10th of May to get a clear picture of everything.
