Rumors that AMD is going to release updated Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards started back in January of this year. Today, VideoCardz portal has shared images of the new products in the reference version and named the timing of their announcement. It is reported that AMD will release at least three graphics gas pedals, which are updated versions of current models: Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT and Radeon RX 6650 XT.
There is not much information about the video cards yet. In the reference version the cards will get a new look, borrowed from the special version of the gas pedal Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black, which AMD released in April last year. Its distinctive feature is completely black coloring instead of silver-black like the original cards. An interesting detail of the Radeon RX 6650 XT will be the new dual-fan cooling system. Recall that the reference Radeon RX 6600 XT uses a cooler with one fan. And the Radeon RX 6750 XT will have a cooling system with three fans instead of two, as it was with the Radeon RX 6700 XT. At the moment we know that all three updated graphics cards will get higher speed GDDR6 memory with 18 Gbps bandwidth. The current versions of GDDR6 memory runs at a speed of 16 Gbit/sec. There is no information about the GPU frequencies of the upgraded graphics cards yet. But it is noted that all of them are likely to get a higher maximum power consumption. The current reference versions of Radeon RX 6600 XT, Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6900 XT have 160, 230 and 300 W respectively. According to the source, the initial release of the upgraded Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards was expected on April 20. However, according to the new data, it was postponed to May 10.
