AMD has officially announced its Radeon RX 6000 series refresh with three new SKUs, the Radeon RX 6950 XT, the RX 6750 XT, and the RX 6650 XT.

The entire lineup is based on the 7nm TSMC N7 manufacturing process and RDNA2 architecture as well as gave these new cards higher GPU clocks, faster memory, and better boosting, putting more pressure on Nvidia's Geforce lineup.

The new AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, which is a direct successor of the RX 6900 XT, now works at 2100MHz Game GPU clock and boosts up to 2310MHz, as well as comes with 16GB of 18Gbps GDDR6 memory. According to AMD, it should do well against the RTX 3090 and the RTX 3080 Ti.

The Radeon RX 6750 XT comes with a game GPU clock of 2495MHz, and boosts up to 2600MHz, which is a significant increase compared to the 2424MHz clock on the Radeon RX 6700 XT. It comes with 12GB of 18Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory interface and should fit somewhere between the RTX 3070 and the RTX 3070 Ti.

The Radeon RX 6650 XT works at 2410MHz game GPU clock and boosts up to 2635MHz, a decent increase compared to the 2359MHz on the RX 6600 XT. It comes with 8GB of 18Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit memory interface. According to AMD, the RX 6650 XT should increase the lead on the RTX 3060 and come closer to the RTX 3060 Ti, which is pretty much what we saw from some of the reviews published online.

The RX 6950 XT MSRP is set at $1,099, making it a rather interesting choice at that price point, especially if you manage to score one at MSRP, although some are already selling at over $1,200 and custom versions easily go over that. The RX 6750 XT replaces the RX 6700 XT at $549, while the RX 6650 XT replaces the RX 6600 XT at $399. The RX 6900 XT and the RX 6700 XT should still be available but at a lower price, while the RX 6600 XT is retired.

In addition to three new SKUs, AMD has also announced the new Raise the Game 2022 bundle, giving those that purchase a "qualifying AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card from a participating retailer after May 10, 2022" a code that can be redeemed for one or more AAA games, depending on the graphics card model. The new titles that will be available are Saints Row: The Third (2022 Remastered), and Sniper Elite 5, with more games to be added at a later date.
