AMD Radeon 6950, 6750, 6650 XT refresh arrives with higher performance

Despite the Radeon RX 6000 Series launching in the fall of 2020, AMD has yet to complete the release of new models for its current generation of graphics cards. The company announced an update today to its existing lineup based on the RDNA 2 architecture. AMD’s new models include the Radeon 6950 XT, 6750 XT, and 6650 XT. All of these models offer slightly more gaming performance than the standard version, but unsurprisingly come at a higher price tag.

Gaming performance gains vary per model and game, but overall, you can expect small performance gains. This refresh does nothing to invalidate the previous line. These new models differentiate themselves from existing options by higher clock speeds, improved Infinity Caching, and faster GDDR6 memory. Other than that, these are the same GPU chips. Whether these improved models are worth it will depend solely on the performance goals you want to achieve. And, of course, the size of your wallet.

The Radeon 6950 XT starts at $1,099 USD, increasing performance a bit, giving it an edge over Nvidia’s RTX 3090. The 6750 XT starts at $549 USD, and AMD claims that it beats the Nvidia RTX 3070 in some current games against the stock 6700 XT. Finally, the 6650 XT starts at $399 USD, and AMD markets it as a high-end 1080p refresh card capable of beating Nvidia’s RTX 3060 in most cases.

Graphics Cards Price Announcement Performance Specifications

Refreshing or redundant?

Even with the benchmarks provided by AMD, the gaming performance improvements for these cards are at best modest for the added costs of scrutinizing the MSRP. The additional $100 USD for the 6950 XT might be worth it for those interested in having the best gaming hardware possible. The 6750 XT is the best performance-boosting option you’ll get, but the $70 USD price increase is substantial. For the 6650 XT, there’s a minimal performance gain that simply isn’t worth the higher price tag.

The fact of the matter is that most of the original Radeon RX 6000 Series cards never hit MSRP. While the recent downtrend in prices for graphics cards could eventually make the MSRP a reality, the current cost is around what AMD is currently charging for refreshed models.

If we look at the market price, we can see that many different XT 6X50 models are available for the new MSRP. In that sense, these cards have better value. An example for the 6650 XT is the Gigabyte Gaming model, which is currently in stock for $399. The Sapphire Pulse is another example for the 6750 XT, priced at $550 USD. For the 6950 XT, you can find most of the models correctly listed at MSRP in addition to the Radeon reference model at AMD.com for $1,099 USD.

While the graphics card market is still expensive compared to 2019, this refresh offers several benefits to consumers considering current market conditions. Now you can get a factory overclocked AMD card for the same price as before with the added benefits of the right cooler and guaranteed stability. Just be aware that a new generation is to be expected later this year.
