From what we know from South Korea’s “National Radio Research Agency” (RRA), we will soon be seeing custom low-power RDNA2 GPUs for desktops. All we have to do is wait till the 20th of April for AMD’s multiple new processors; the Ryzen 5000/4000. Along with this, there will be some new Radeon Rx 6000 GPUs as well. Whereas the date has been confirmed for these processors and GPUs, we still are not sure about when the company is planning to launch the upgraded Radeon graphics cards. But we sure can say one thing; AMD is definitely planning a major product refresh spree this Spring.
Apart from the rumors circulating around the Radeon RX 6X50XT series, we are hearing some more regarding AMD launching the slowest RDNA2 GPU specifically designed for the DIY market. At this point, it still remains unclear whether this model will feature the same specifications as that of the OEM model. However, the RRA report does hint towards a possible custom Gigabyte Eagle series model.
As of now, the Radeon RX 6400 is only available for OEMs. It is a Navi 24 based GPU featuring 768 Stream Processors. In terms of lineup, this one stands as the only reference low profile model; it is the only card with a TDP of 53W and will not require any external power connectors.
In short, if we are sticking to what these reports are claiming, AMD is all set to launch a trio of the new Radeon RX 6000 SKUs. These are the 6950XT, the 6750XT, and the 6650XT. The RX 6400 will be held exclusively for the DIY customers. It is not a gaming GPU as it has limited video encoding capabilities but it will be a good match for home theater PCs.
