AMD’s reportedly prepping a Radeon RX 5600 XT for an early 2020 release

Rumour has it that AMD plans to release a graphics card called the RX 5600 XT in early 2020, offering competition for Nvidia’s GTX 1660 series and a mid-point between AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5500 series GPUs.

Videocardz has reported that AMD’s RX 5600 XT is being prepared by at least two of AMD’s Radeon Add-In-Board (AIB) partners, offering support for 6GB of GDDR6 memory. This makes it likely that AMD is making use of a 192-bit memory bus (as 96-bit and 384-bit bus sizes make no sense), matching the memory bus size of Nvidia’s GTX 1660 series while also sitting between AMD’s RX 5500 and RX 5700 series graphics cards. 

With AMD’s RX 5500 competing with Nvidia’s GTX 1650 series, AMD’s RX 5600 XT is likely to compete with Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Super graphics card in the £200ish GPU price point. Videocardz has also reported that the RX 5600 XT could release as early as January 2020.

At this time, it is unknown whether or not AMD has plans to release a Radeon RX 5800 or RX 5900 series graphics card in 2020. Such a graphics card could compete favourably with Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, especially if priced correctly.
