AMD is expected to add to its Radeon 5000 series product stack with a few new product announcements in December. The first will be the Radeon RX 5500 XT, which will max out the 24 RDNA units on the “Navi 14” silicon. We could see the RX 5500 XT as early as next week, possibly ahead of the mid-December release of the RX 5500 to the AIB (add-in board) retail channel.
Next would be the new RX 5600 series, this would target NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 Ti around the $200-$300 price points. We do not have official word on what silicon AMD will be using for the RX 5600 series, but we expect it to be built from the “Navi 10” silicon with many RDNA compute units disabled. VideoCardz is reporting that the RX 5600 XT will have 6GB of GDDR6 across a 192-bit wide memory interface.
The RX 5500 XT has 1536 stream processors and the RX 5700 has 2304, so AMD has room between the two for the RX 5600 series. We could see a stream processor count of 2048 or 1920 for the RX 5600 XT and 1792 for the RX 5600.
