With the release of the updated RDNA 2 GPUs fast approaching, Videocardz has their hands on suggested retail prices for the new Radeon RX 6050 cards. According to AMD’s alleged internal chipset, the RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT will actually launch on May 10, with MSRP higher than their counterparts.
The higher the clip, the bigger the difference in price: The RX 6950 XT is expected to cost $1,099, or $100 more than the current RX 6900 XT. The suggested retail price for the 6750 XT is $549, which is $70 more than its smaller brother. After that, the RX 6650 XT will change again from $399, which is two dollars more than the RX 6600 XT.
AMD itself will only sell reference designs of the highest segmented SKUs.
To justify this extra cost, Team Red is said to increase clock speed and memory in the new models – as well as power consumption. In anticipation of next Tuesday’s alleged review ban, some 3DMark results have already emerged, showing that the RX 6950 XT and 6750 XT in particular should perform better than their predecessors.

Meanwhile, Wccftech also got hold of the performance numbers, which AMD reportedly shared with several media outlets. This shows that the upgrading of the updated RDNA 2 maps is still somewhat limited. The RX 6950 XT is said to be 4% faster on average than the RX 6900 XT at 4k resolution, while the RX 6750 XT achieves 7% more fps than its smaller brother at 1,440p. The performance of the RX 6650 XT will be virtually identical to its predecessor, with +2% fps at 1080p.
Gaming performance in the RX 6950 XT, 6750 XT, 6650 XT and their Nvidia counterparts.
Most likely, the tested games perform better on Radeon GPUs, so we will have to wait for reviews from third parties to give the full picture.
