AMD Reportedly Launching Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB GDDR6 Navi Graphics Card early 2020

AMD Reportedly Launching Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB GDDR6 Navi Graphics Card early 2020

AMD is not done with its Navi GPUs yet, with the company apparently prepping another desktop GPU to add to its portfolio. AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT hasn’t been officially confirmed but reports indicate that it is going to arrive in the Radeon RX 5000 series family in January, next year.

The AMD Radeon RX 5000 series lineup has so far received three cards, the Radeon RX 5700 XT, the Radeon RX 5700 and the Radeon RX 5500 (XT). The Radeon RX 5700 series is based on AMD Navi 10 GPUs while the Radeon RX 5500 series is based on AMD Navi 14 GPUs. The AMD Radeon RX 5500 series have not yet arrived on retail shelves but they are expected to be available next week.

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT has been confirmed by at least two board partners, as Videocardz reports. There isn’t any information regarding the specific model or the GPU SKU used on the RX 5600 XT graphics card.

The only information available on its specifications is that the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card would feature 6 GB of GDDR6 memory. This would be coupled with a 192-bit bus interface which is similar to NVIDIA’s GeForce 1660 series graphics cards. That also points out that this card will be positioned against the Turing TU116 based GPUs with the most recent entrant in that line being the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER and the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER. The Navi based Radeon RX 5500 XT can take on the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER while the Radeon RX 5600 XT will compete with the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER. This would be an ideal position for AMD in the mainstream market.

As for the launch, the source reports that the Radeon RX 5600 XT is scheduled for early 2020 and we could see a launch as early as January which is next month. On the other hand, it is also stated that the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT would be coming in both 4 GB and 8 GB variants and would be available in custom variants next week while the non-XT variant will be coming to OEMs only. Both cards have the same specifications with the XT variant targetting the DIY market and the non-XT variant targetting the OEM market. There is still no word on the pricing of the Radeon RX 5500 XT but we might see it close to $149 US as previously speculated.
