AMD's next wave of high-end GPUs will reportedly have higher launch prices than their predecessors.
What you need to know
- Pricing details for AMD's upcoming RDNA 2 graphics cards have leaked online.
- The Radeon RX 6950 XT ($1,0,99), RX 6750 XT ($549), and RX 6650 XT ($399) will reportedly cost more than the launch prices of their RX 6x00 counterparts.
- VideoCardz expects the Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT to launch on May 10, 2022.
The leaks continue surrounding the next wave of the best graphics cards. Yesterday, details emerged about Intel's upcoming Arc desktop GPUs. Now, leaks have given us pricing information about AMD's Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT. VideoCardz claimed that it obtained MSRP details for the upcoming RDNA 2 GPUs from AMD.
AMD customers can expect a bit of a price bump for high-end GPUs based on the leaks. The RX 6950 XT's reported price of $1,099 is $100 more than the MSRP of the RX 6900 XT. The RX 6750 XT will reportedly cost $70 more than the RX 6700 XT, and the RX 6650 XT will be $20 more than the RX 6600 XT, according to VideoCardz.
Of course, these price comparisons are based on the MSRPs of GPUs. Graphics cards are almost impossible to find at their suggested retail prices these days, but they give a more fair comparison than stacking retail markups against suggested prices.
Note that pricing for the upcoming Radeon GPUs has not been confirmed.
|Graphics card||MSRP (uncomfirmed)|
|Radeon RX 6950 XT||$1,099|
|Radeon RX 6750 XT||$549|
|Radeon RX 6650 XT||$399|
The slide obtained by VideoCardz also confirms a May 10, 2022 release date for the graphics cards. Sources told VideoCardz that review embargoes for the GPUs will also lift on that day.
Assuming that the leaked information is accurate, we won't have to wait long to get official confirmation of the new cards, including pricing and specs.

Leaks have been all over with these, so I wouldn't accept them as truth just yet. However, with the recent price drops on the existing cards, this would make sense. The 6800 family has hung higher than the others and it's the one not shown with a xx50 variant. We're also getting rather close to the next generation of cards when AMD is likely to implement a MCM design. This doesn't mean a whole lot for the lower-tier buyers, but I wouldn't go spending $700+ when that's the market most likely to get serviced first when RDNA3 looks to drastically shake up GPUs for AMD.
