Foreign media said AMD discontinued the RX 5700 series graphics card: to pave the way for the RX 6000 new products.

AmD is also ready to pave the way for the upcoming RX 6000. Both the public and non-public versions of the RX 5700 series of graphics cards have ceased production, although AMD is still producing RX 5600 XT graphics cards, so the latter will continue to be available on the market for some time, according tomedia Cotland.

Last June, AMD launched the Radeon RX 5700 series of next-generation graphics cards based on the new 7nm process, Navi’s new core, and RDNA’s new architecture, including the RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 models, of which the RX 5700 XT has 40 computing units, 2560 stream processors, 64 ROP units, 256 texture units, equipped with 8GB GDDR6, bit width 256-bit, equivalent frequency 14GHz, bandwidth of 448GB/s, the whole card power consumption of 225W, 8 plus 6 pin auxiliary power supply.

The RX 5700 is reduced to 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors, 144 texture units, ROP units unchanged, frequency reference 1465MHz, game 1625MHz, limit 1725MHz, memory unchanged, the whole card power consumption of 180W, is also 8 plus 6 auxiliary power supply.

AMD has previously announced that the RDNA2 architecture RX 6000 series graphics card will be released on October 28.

Summarizing the information previously exposed, the RDNA2 architecture RX 6000 series graphics card will contain multiple models, from highest to low, Navi 21, Navi 22 and Nav 23, specifically:

The Navi 21 is the Big Navi, which integrates up to 80 sets of CUs, or 5,120 stream processors, to match the 256bit wide memory and is expected to be named the RX 6900 Series.

The Navi 22 integrates 40 sets of CUs, or 2560 stream processors, to directly replace the current RX 5700/XT, which is expected to be named RX 6800/6700.

The core details of the Navi 23 are not yet known and are expected to be named after the RX 6600/6500 graphics card.
