AMD’s Leaked Reference RDNA 2 Refresh designs have been leaked again by a Canadian Retailer

Thanks to Canada Computers and Electronics (via Videocardz) it has been reconfirmed that AMD are launching refreshed RDNA 2 graphics cards in the near future, RX 6X50 series upgrades for the company’s existing Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6700 XT and RX 6600 XT.Canada Computers and Electronics released the below advertisement on their website, showcasing new reference graphics card designs for AMD’s RX 6650 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6950 XT. These new graphics cards appear to use the “Midnight Black” colour scheme of AMD’s Radeon RX 6800XT Midnight Black Edition graphics card, differentiating these new reference designs from AMD’s existing reference GPU models.

This advertisement matching pre-existing leaks for AMD’s Radeon RX 6X50 XT series graphics cards (again via Videocardz), reconfirming AMD’s planned heatsink designs for these new graphics card models. Videocardz has reported that AMD plans to officially reveal its RX 6X50 XT series of graphics cards on May 10th, where we expect AMD to reveal the official specifications and prices of these new GPU models.

Sadly, the specifications of AMD’s RX 6650XT, RX 6750XT and RX 6950XT are unknown, though they are likely to offer users the same stream processor counts as their RX 6000XT predecessors, as they reportedly utilise the full CU counts of AMD’s Navi 21, Navi 22, and Navi 23 GPU cores respectively. This would limit the upgrades offered by AMD’s RX 6X50XT to TDP increases, memory bandwidth increases, and core clock speed increases.

All of AMD’s RX 6X50XT designs reportedly feature 18Gbps GDDR6X memory modules, giving each GPU a 12.5% increase in memory bandwidth. However, some SKUs will have this memory clocked at 17.5 Gbps, either for power reasons or PCB compatibility reasons. PowerColor’s leaked Radeon RX 6650 XT Hellhound uses 17.5 Gbps GDDR6 memory.
