Pricing leaks for AMD’s Radeon “RDNA 2 Refresh” GPU lineup

A newly leaked slide from AMD (thanks Videocardz) has seemingly confirmed the release date and pricing for AMD’s planned “RDNA 2 Refresh”, updated RX 6000 series graphics cards that feature faster GDDR6 memory and higher core clock speeds.

For AMD’s planned Radeon RX 6950 XT, a higher-end model of their Radeon RX 6900 XT, AMD has reportedly set a price of $1099. This is $100 more than AMD’s original RX 6900 XT MSRP, with that money being pushed into 18 Gbps memory modules, and a notable boost in the speed of the graphics card’s stream processors.

With the RX 6750 XT, AMD is increasing their prices by $70, placing the RX 6750 XT’s MSRP dangerously close to the pricing of their Radeon RX 6800 (which costs $30 more). Whether or not the boosted performance of these new models justify a $70 price increase remains to be seen, though we would have liked to have seen AMD push for lower pricing than this.

On the lower-end of their GPU lineup, AMD’s RX 6650 XT has a price premium of $20 over AMD’s RX 6600 XT, making the premium easy to justify given the graphics card’s memory and clock speed boost. $20 is not a lot of money, and this price premium is very acceptable.   

Below are the known specifications of AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series and the leaked specifications of AMD’s new Radeon RX 6050 series products. 

AMD’s Radeon RX 6X50 series graphics cards are due to become available to purchase on May 10th.
