The AMD Radeon RX 6950XT is a new Radeon graphics card with the Navi 21 KXTX GPU as its centerpiece. This is the complete RDNA2 desktop GPU implementation, including 5120 Stream Processors and 80 Ray Accelerators. The card will come with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, which will now run at 18 Gbps. The key changes to this SKU are the quicker RAM and higher board power to 335W.
These refreshes, which are based on AMD’s rDNA 2 architecture, are essentially supercharged versions of the RX 6000 cards AMD announced at the end of 2020. While the specifications of this trio of cards are similar to those of its predecessors, three major upgrades allow for improved performance: higher game clocks, faster GDDR6 memory, and improved software.
As we all know, these cards can sell out rapidly and then be relisted for more than MSRP, so if you’re in the market for a high-performance GPU, act quickly.
With the $1,099 AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, $549 AMD Radeon 6750 XT, and $399 AMD Radeon 6650 XT, the business is finally pricing its graphics cards based on market demand rather than inventing a phoney MSRP. When you couple that with the fact that AMD graphics cards have practically returned to sensible prices in general, there’s a good possibility you’ll be able to get these new ones for the price AMD is charging.
