AMD could also be getting ready a extra entry-level graphics card in its RX 6000-series lineup within the Radeon RX 6500. Sure, a supposed cheaper different to the Radeon RX 6500 XT that launched two weeks in the past, and which left a bitter style in our mouths.
Based on common Twitter leaker Greymon55 (through Videocardz), AMD is planning to launch the RX 6500 in Might.
There shall be RX 6500 in Might, I feel the specs shall be just like RX 6400 OEM.RX 6X50XT might be in June-JulyFebruary 2, 2022
The specs of the graphics card can be just like that of the prevailing RX 6400, which is OEM solely. The RX 6400 comes with 12 CUs and 768 stream processors, all operating a lift clock of two,321MHz. That is joined by 4GB of GDDR6 reminiscence.
If the specs of the rumoured RX 6500 are to be roughly round that space, we’re not taking a look at a fairly image for gaming efficiency. The RX 6500 XT allow us to down in that division, and it comes with 1,024 stream processors throughout 16 CUs.
The RX 6500 XT was launched with an MSRP of $199. Nonetheless, since launch it could actually now be present in extra of $250, if not broaching the $300 mark. Greymon55 suggests the RX 6500 would sit round $130 at launch, although who is aware of what value it might find yourself at post-launch day.
I can not say I am personally excited concerning the proposition. Even at its greatest, the RX 6500 is destined to be worse than the RX 6500 XT—a card we do not consider ought to have ever existed resulting from its poor value/efficiency and lack of generation-on-generation enchancment. At the least there’s some probability the RX 6500 may provide a approach in for avid gamers on a shoestring price range, although it is unlikely to save lots of the element graphics card market through the ongoing GPU scarcity.
Maybe some exceedingly low cost prebuilt PCs may come out of this? We are able to solely hope that is truly the case ought to AMD truly launch such a card.
