AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT: 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a Q1 2020 launch date?
Information is currently thin on the ground about this one, but Videocardz claims that AMD is readying the Radeon RX 5600 XT to add to its Navi product stack. The website has a good track record with graphics card news, having received accurate information about several AMD and NVIDIA product releases. Hence, we are marking this one as likely rather than just a maybe.
According to Videocardz, two add-in-board partners (AIBs) have confirmed that they are developing RX 5600 XT cards, although the website is yet to confirm which AIBs these are. The website also implies that it has been informed by these AIBs of some of the specifications that the RX 5600 XT will feature too. Again, this has not been explicitly confirmed.
Apparently, the RX 5600 XT will have GDDR6 VRAM like its other Navi siblings. However, AMD will pair the GPU with 6 GB of VRAM, rather than the 4 GB of 8 GB that it includes in the RX 5500 and RX 5700 series respectively. The RX 5600 XT will "most likely" run on a 192-bit memory bus too, a downgrade from the 256-bit bus on which the RX 5700 series operates.
There is currently no word yet on pricing, cores, clock speeds or the GPU on which the RX 5600 XT will be based. Moreover, Videocardz did not mention a regular RX 5600 being in the pipeline, either. The website also expects the RX 5600 XT to launch early next year, "possibly in January". Tentatively, we would earmark its release for Q1 2020.
