Some AMD RDNA2 graphics cards to be refreshed in Q2, 2022 with faster memory: Rumour
If the barrage of current and upcoming Ampere refreshes (RTX 3070 Ti 16GB, RTX 3080 Ti 12GB, etc.) weren't confusing enough, the graphics card market is all set to get even more convoluted with AMD's offerings. A reputable Chiphell leaker says that some RDNA2-based cards, such as the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and the Radeon 6700 XT, could get a fresh coat of paint in Q2, 2022.
The post doesn't tell us much about the RX 6950 XT, RX 6850 XT, RX 6750 XT graphics cards have in store for us, but it could espouse an upgraded GPU and faster 18Gbps memory modules. The former could also include an increase in the CU count, among other things, and a marginal rise in power consumption. The performance uplift offered by the SKUs won't be anything to write home about, by the looks of it.
AMD's decision to launch new RDNA2-based cards just two quarters before RDNA3's scheduled launch is somewhat puzzling. Then again, Nvidia is doing the same with SKUs like the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, whose production has been delayed due to hardware and BIOS issues. Lastly, it doesn't matter how many RDNA2 graphics cards exist on paper as long as availability remains an issue.
