Asus, Sapphire and PowerColor announce custom RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT graphics cards

After months of rumours, today AMD has officially announced its RX 6000 series refresh, consisting of three new RDNA 2 graphics cards – the RX 6950 XT, the RX 6750 XT and the RX 6650 XT. As you would expect, a flurry of custom-cooled solutions from AMD's board partners are also on the way, bringing new options to the market for the summer. 

All three refreshed GPUs are launching today, offering a small performance bump over their predecessors, with faster clock speeds and memory. You can see the full specs compared to the original GPUs in the table below:

ASUS and Sapphire are amongst the first AiBs to launch custom-cooled versions of these GPUs. On the Asus side, you will find Dual OC series and ROG Strix series graphics cards, while Sapphire will be bringing back the Nitro and Pulse cooling solutions for all three graphics cards. Elsewhere, you will also find a new PowerColor Red Devil version of the RX 6750 XT.

We can expect to see more custom-cooled cards from the likes of MSI, Gigabyte and others in the weeks ahead. If you want a full run down on the performance for the RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT, then be sure to check out our full review HERE.
