The 6650 XT, 6750 XT, and 6950 XT are three new graphics cards in AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series.

The “50” in their name indicates that these new models are straight improvements to prior models. The 6650 XT is a step up from the 6600 XT, while the 6750 XT refines the 6700 XT. Despite being improvements, the new cards’ performance isn’t all that different, with the exception of new features and a higher price tag.

All three cards are based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, although they’ve been tuned to perform better than previous models while maintaining the same capabilities.

The first is FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0, which boosts frame rate and image quality in games that support it. The AMD Software Adrenalin Edition comes next, and it can improve the performance of some DirectX 11 games by 10%.

When combined with a Ryzen CPU and an AMD 500 motherboard, AMD Smart Access Memory (SAM) Technology can increase a rig’s performance. According to AMD, when the 6950 XT is combined with a Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor, performance can increase by up to 14%.

Then there’s AMD Infinity Cache, which lowers latency and power usage.

A small upgrade, according to the analysis

The new AMD Radeon RX 6X50 XT cards, which were revealed today, are minor enhancements over their base 6000-series counterparts, focusing on game optimizations and increased clock speeds.

The game and boost clocks on the 6650 XT are now 2,410 MHz and 2,635 MHz, respectively.

The game clock on the 6750 XT is 2,496 MHz with a boost up to 2,600 MHz, while the game clock on the 6950 XT is 2,100 MHz with a boost up to 2,310 MHz. This makes it the slowest of the lot, although it has a much higher TGP, and both the 6950 XT and 6750 have the same memory speed of 18 Gbps, with the 6650 XT running at 17.5 Gbps.

These aren’t poor figures by any means, but they don’t represent a significant growth. The older 6600XT, for example, has a gaming frequency of 2,359 Mhz and a boost clock of 2,589 Mhz, not much behind the 6650 XT.

The 6950 XT and 6750 XT are currently on sale on AMD’s website if you want that little bump. Although AMD does not sell the 6650 XT, AIB partners like as Gigabyte and Asus sell the cards through various merchants. The RX 6950 XT starts at $1,099, the RX 6750 XT at $549, and the RX 6650 XT at $399, with third-party cards costing more depending on the extra functionality they offer.

Budget overclockers may be heartbroken by AMD’s Radeon RX 6400.
