AMD has reported discontinued its RX 5700 series of graphics cards

Later this month, AMD plans to reveal its next generation of graphics cards, showcasing the company’s RDNA 2 architecture and what it will bring to the PC market. 

RDNA 2 promises to deliver a 50% performance-per-watt gain over today’s RDNA products, promising consumers a substantial leap in gaming performance. AMD promises a tremendous performance leap with RDNA 2, so much so that today’s RDNA products may soon become irrelevant to the consumer market. 

With this in mind, news that AMD’s RDNA-power Navi 10 silicon is no longer in production, and that custom RX 5700 series graphics cards have reached its end of life. According to Cowcotland, AMD is no longer producing RX 5700 series graphics processors, which makes sense given the company’s launch plans for RDNA 2.  

On October 28th, AMD plans to reveal its first RDNA 2 products with the RX 6000 series. These products will replace AMD’s current high-end offerings and should deliver a lot more value for money than AMD’s current-generation products. 

Killing the production of RX 5700 series products makes sense, as this allows AMD to move its 7nm manufacturing to newer and more profitable RDNA 2 products. AMD’s RX 5500 series reportedly remains in production, which makes sense as the company’s RDNA 2 lineup will likely start with high-end products and later move towards lower-end products. Radeon isn’t ready to replace the RX 5500 series, at least not yet.
