PowerColor listed many new graphics cards on the EEC database recently, from which most are RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 GPUs. However, the listing also shows an unknown SKU named BC-2235, which is claimed to be a mining card.
The listing, found by @momomo_us, confirms that both the Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 graphics cards will come with 4GB of GDDR6 memory. Moreover, it seems the RX 6400 GPU will also feature low-profile (LP) models, as seen by the name of some SKUs.

There are three mysterious BC-2235 SKUs listed as well. According to VideoCardz, these are most likely new mining graphics cards, where “BC” stands for blockchain compute, “22” refers to Navi 22, and “35” is the rated Ethereum hash rate (35MH/s). It seems Sapphire isn’t the only AMD partner turning its attention to the mining market as a way to maximise profits.
There’s a good chance that the BC-2235 uses the same GPU as the Sapphire GPRO X080. Assuming they are the same, the PowerColor mining GPU should feature 2304 streaming processors, and 10GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps running across a 160-bit memory bus.
KitGuru says: At this point the impending RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 launch is all but confirmed. Will any of you be looking to pick up a new entry level GPU next year for a low budget gaming rig?
