Based on foreign press reviews, the performance of Radeon RX 6750 XT and Radeon RX 6650 XT graphics cards presented yesterday has indeed improved over the regular Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6600 XT.But will it be enough to match or even overtake the competition? We have studied reviews of both gas pedals from PCWorld and TechPowerUp portals and below are the main excerpts.Image source: PCWorldBriefly recall the characteristics.At the heart of both video cards are used exactly the same graphics processors as the predecessors.The only difference is their slightly higher gaming and Boost frequencies.In the case of Radeon RX 6750 XT the basis of the chip is Navi 22 with 2560 stream processors, operating in the frequency range from 2495 to 2600 MHz.The chip of its predecessor in turn operates in the range from 2424 to 2581 MHz.Sapphire Radeon RX 6650 XT Nitro +.Image source: Golem.deeThe Radeon RX 6750 XT also has faster GDDR6 memory.It runs at 18Gbps per pin instead of 16Gbps.Thanks to this its bandwidth increased from 384 to 432 GB/s.The memory bus bit rate has not changed.It is still 192 bits.The capacity also remains the same: 12 GB.Rated power consumption of the card increased from 230 to 250 W.Sapphire Radeon RX 6750 XT Nitro+.Image source: Golem.deModel Radeon RX 6650 XT in turn is built on the chip Navi 23 with 2048 stream processors.Its gaming frequency is 2410 MHz, and in Boost mode it goes up to 2635 MHz.Radeon RX 6600 XT in turn has frequencies of 2359 and 2589 MHz respectively.The new booster also has faster GDDR6 memory at 17.5Gbps (instead of 16Gbps).The memory bus bit rate remains the same at 128 bits.The memory bandwidth has increased from 256 GB/s to 288 GB/s.Declared power consumption index of the gas pedal increased from 160 to 180 W.MSI Radeon RX 6650 XT Gaming X.Image source: TechPowerUpReviewed by PCWorld portal got gas pedals Sapphire Radeon RX 6650 XT Nitro+ and Sapphire Radeon RX 6750 XT Nitro+.They have a small factory overclocking of the graphics chip, which generally does not affect the overall picture of performance.MSI Radeon RX 6650 XT Gaming X and ASUS Radeon RX 6750 XT Strix OC models, which turned out to be in the hands of TechPowerUp journalists, have additional overclocking as well.ASUS Radeon RX 6750 XT Strix OC.Source image: TechPowerUpAccording to TechPowerUp, cosmetic improvements such as higher GPU frequency, faster memory and increased power consumption did both cards good, but do not count on significant improvements.For example, Radeon RX 6650 XT in games with 1080p resolution (the target for this card) became faster than the usual Radeon RX 6600 XT on average by 5%. Relative performance of Radeon RX 6650 XT (picture push).Image source: TechPowerUpThe advantage of the new Radeon RX 6600 XT over the GeForce RTX 3060 model is now 13%.At the same time, the novelty is still slower than the gas pedal GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, which overtakes it by 10%.As for the Radeon RX 6700 XT, it is 13% faster than the Radeon RX 6650 XT. Relative performance of Radeon RX 6750 XT (picture clicks).Image source: TechPowerUpThe Radeon RX 6750 XT, on the other hand, is on average 8% faster than the regular Radeon RX 6700 XT in games at 1440p resolution.That's enough to match the performance of the GeForce RTX 3070 and at the same time close the gap with the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti to just 6%.The proprietary Radeon RX 6800 is 11% faster than the new model.Below in the gallery are performance charts for the Radeon RX 6650 XT and Radeon RX 6750 XT in various games at 1080p and 1440p resolutions without ray tracing provided by PCWorld.Radeon RX 6650 XT and Radeon RX 6750 XT performance without ray tracing jpg See all images (10) f1-2020.jpg horizon-zero-dawn.jpg metro-exodus.jpg rb6.jpg shadow-of-the-tomb-raider.jpg strange-brigade.jpg watch-dogs-legion.jpg wolfenstein-youngblood.jpg See all images (10) Radeon 6000 cards are not so good at ray tracing \"traditionally\".Both gas pedals noticeably lag behind not only their direct competitors, but also from the initially less productive GeForce solutions.For example, the Radeon RX 6750 XT is often inferior even to the GeForce RTX 2080 of last generation Turing.Radeon RX 6650 XT performance in ray traced games (1080p and 1440p) control-rt-1920-1080.png See all images (18) control-rt-2560-1440.png cyberpunk-2077-rt-1920-1080.png cyberpunk-2077-rt-2560-1440.png deathloop-rt-192
PowerColor unveiled perhaps the cutest version of the Radeon RX 6650 XT graphics gas pedal.A distinctive feature of the Hellhound Sakura Edition is the unusual white and pink coloring with drawings of cherry blossoms on the back reinforcement plate.Image source: PowerColorThe manufacturer has also announced black and all-white (Hellhound Spectral) versions of the Radeon RX 6650 XT Hellhound.All three are based on the Navi 23 KXT chip with 32 compute blocks that include 2048 stream processors, 32 ray tracing acceleration blocks, 128 texture blocks and 64 rasterization blocks. The chip offers little factory overclocking and operates in a frequency range of 2486 to 2689 MHz.The card has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit bus.The data transfer rate is 17.5 Gbit/s per pin.Due to this its bandwidth is increased up to 288 GB/s.It also has a high-speed 32 MB Infinity Cache buffer.Like the common Radeon RX 6600 XT, you need only 8 lanes of PCIe 4.0 for working.Hellhound Sakura Edition has pink backlight and two cooling fans.The card has one 8 pins connector for additional power.TDP rating is 180 W.PowerColor RX 6650 XT Hellhound Sakura Edition is already on sale.For example, you can find it in New Zealand, where it is offered for about $503.
AMD introduced the fresh graphics gas pedals of Radeon RX 6x50 XT series.It includes Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT models.From the usual versions, new items differ slightly higher GPU frequencies, faster GDDR6 memory, as well as increased power consumption indicator.Image source: AMDThe flagship model Radeon RX 6950 XT is based on the Navi 21 KXTX graphics chip with 5120 stream processors and 80 raytracing acceleration blocks.The card has 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with 18 Gbit/s transfer rate per pin (regular Radeon RX 6900 XT memory has 16 Gbit/s transfer rate).TDP value of the upgraded booster is 335W.AMD compares Radeon RX 6950 XT with the regular GeForce RTX 3090, but the presented gaming performance charts show the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. The company has priced the Radeon RX 6950 XT at $100 more than its predecessor.The recommended price for the graphics card is $1099.The Radeon RX 6750 XT uses a Navi 22 chip with 2,560 stream processors.The graphics card has 12 GB of GDDR6 memory at 18 GB/s data transfer rate.The declared TDP value is 250 watts.The gas pedal can be an alternative (but not a replacement) to the usual Radeon RX 6800, one of the most unpopular models in the Radeon RX 6000 series. According to AMD, the Radeon RX 6750 XT will compete directly with the GeForce RTX 3070.The recommended price for the graphics card is $549.This is $70 above the recommended cost of the regular Radeon RX 6700 XT and only $30 cheaper than the Radeon RX 6800.The Radeon RX 6650 XT is built on the Navi 23 chip with 2048 stream processors.The card has 8GB of GDDR6 memory at 17.5Gbps and is a direct competitor to the GeForce RTX 3060.The Radeon RX 6650 XT has a maximum power consumption of 180W, which is 10W higher than the NVIDIA card. AMD has priced the Radeon RX 6650 XT at $399, which is $20 more expensive than the Radeon RX 6600 XT.Image source: VideoCardzThe Radeon RX 6950 XT and Radeon RX 6750 XT reference graphics cards start selling today.Specifically, they will be offered through AMD's official online store.In general, however, the launch of fresh graphics cards relies on partner solutions.In a few hours AMD will lift the ban on publishing independent reviews of the new products.
