The AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT launch has reportedly been pushed back to May 10. According to the report, the April 2022-bound cards will be unveiled with the entry-level Radeon RX 6400, which also showcases renders of the graphics cards.

Rumours about the AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT and Radeon RX 6650 XT being in the pipeline originated in early 2022. Subsequent leaks from multiple sources converged on the graphics cards' April 2022 release date. However, Videocardz has learned that the date has been pushed back, and AMD now plans to unveil the GPUs on May 10.

While the delay is a tad disappointing, fresh renders of the AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT, and Radeon RX 6650 XT have been posted online. They reveal a triple-fan design for the first two SKUs and a dual-fan configuration for the third. Unlike the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, no new power connectors are involved, although the Radeon RX 6950 XT, in particular, could be quite power hungry. 

The report adds that new information about the entry-level AMD Radeon RX 6400 could also be revealed on May 10. While not stated explicitly, AMD could also shed more light on the Radeon RX 6300, a supposed OEM-only card. Some of the upgrades bought forth by the AMD Radeon 6650 XT, RX 6760 XT and RX 6950 XT include faster 18 Gbps memory modules and higher base/boost clocks, and it'll be interesting to see how much real-world performance uplift that translates to.

With RDNA3-based GPUs right around the corner, most enthusiasts will likely slug it out for a few more months to try and get their hands on newer hardware. If anything, the AMD Radeon RX 6X50 XT line will help drive GPU prices lower, to the point where it could be possible to buy one at MSRP off the shelves at major retailers.
