AMD has announced three new GPUs that will be joining its current Radeon RX 6000 series, namely the RX 6650 XT, the 6750 XT and the 6950 XT, the last of which supplants the 6900 XT as AMD's most powerful graphics card to date. The three new cards utilise the same RDNA 2 architecture powering other 6000-series cards, and bring with them upgrades over their existing 6600, 6700 XT and 6900 XT predecessors.

The 6950 XT, in particular, promises smooth 4K gaming at max settings, even with AAA titles. Like the 6900 XT, it's slated to run with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, though it comes with a memory speed of 18Gbps, compared to the 16Gbps of the 6900 XT. As for clock speeds, it comes with a higher Game Clock of 2100 MHz against the 6900 XT's 2015 MHz, and a Boost Frequency of 2310MHz. Of course, all of this comes with a higher power draw, with AMD quoting the Typical Board Power (TBP) at 335W, compared to the 6900 XT's 300W.

As we noted in our review of the 6900 XT, AMD's comparison of that GPU with NVIDIA's RTX 3090 was a bit dubious, given the latter's better ray-tracing performance and better results in professional workloads. Whether the RX 6950 XT better matches those claims will take extended testing to prove, but given that AMD's RDNA 2 architecture is already about two years old, it may not matter as much.

As for the 6650 XT and 6750 XT, as you might expect, the fanfare around them from AMD is more modest. AMD touts smooth 1080p and 1440p gaming performance from the 6650 XT and 6750 XT respectively, with the cards sporting 8GB and 12GB of GDDR6 memory accordingly. The 6650 XT's memory will run at 17.5 Gbps, while the 6750 XT shares the 18Gbps memory speed with the 6950 XT. In short, here are some of the key specs for the three cards:

Clock Speeds

AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT AMD Radeon RX 6750 XT AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT
Compute Units 32 40 80
Stream Processors 2048 2560 5120
  • 2055 MHz (Base)
  • 2410 MHz (Game)
  • 2635 MHz (Boost)
  • 2150 MHz (Base)
  • 2495 MHz (Game)
  • 2600 MHz (Boost)
  • 1890 MHz (Base)
  • 2100 MHz (Game)
  • 2310 MHz (Boost)
Memory 8GB 12GB 16GB
TBP 180W 250W 335W

Alongsid the new GPUs, AMD is also updating its FidelityFX Super Resolution technology, which helps boost framerates in supported games. Dubbed FSR 2.0, AMD announced that it will be compatible with a few more titles, including DEATHLOOP, developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda, support for which will come the soonest, on 12th May. Support for FSR 2.0 in other games will come in the later months, and includes titles like EVE Online, Microsoft Flight Simulator and Farming Simulator 22.

Availability and Pricing

The reference cards for the Radeon RX 6750 XT and RX 6950 XT are available through AMD's own store starting today, though they're already out of stock. Despite the existing render, the lack of an RX 6650 XT listing on AMD's store may mean that there's no reference card available, so if you're looking to get one, it's up to manufacturers like ASUS, Sapphire and PowerColor.

As expected, the three cards also occupy three different price brackets, with the RX 6650 XT costing US$399, the RX 6750 XT costing US$549, and the RX 6950 XT costing US$1,099, putting it close to the US$1,199 official price of NVIDIA's RTX 3080 Ti. Given chip shortage and supply chain troubles, the question of whether they'll stay at those prices is another matter.
