For those wondering about the rumours and speculation swirling around a potential RX 7950 XTX release windows, don’t worry, you’ve come to the right place.
Rumours have been flying around about the possibility of an RX 7950 XTX being in the works since an AMD ROCm 5.6 pull request was spotted by a Reddit user. If true, this would be an exciting step-forward in understanding where the AMD 7000 series could be heading next. However, until AMD announce that that the graphics card is going to be a real thing – this will only be speculation.
Up until this point, the speculation we’ve done about potential 7000 series model release dates, like the RX 7800 XT, has tended to look at more mid-range options. However, it seems that maybe we should have been thinking about a potential specs bump on the already released models instead. But, if an RX 7950 XTX could be in the works, when might it release?
Let’s get into it.
RX 7950 XTX release window speculation
When we were thinking about more mid-range options we suggested a potential Q2 2023 release date. This seemed reasonable when we were looking at a more powerful sibling going to a more mid-range option. However, all this is thrown out the window when considering the possibility of a more powerful model.
At the end of the day, at the time of writing, nothing has been announced or confirmed regarding a potential release date for a potential RX 7950 XTX model. This makes it hard for us to believe we could be looking at anything sooner than late Q3 2023 for a possible RX 7950 XTX announcement. We find it more likely that if an RX 7950 XTX was in the works we would see it in a few months time, since it’s powerful sibling was so recently released, and any kind of meaningful refresh in the specs would probably want a bit of breathing room. We couldn’t say for sure on that one until any specs were actually confirmed, though.
For now, we’re going to tentatively speculate that we would expect to see a potential RX 7950 XTX model no sooner than late Q3 2023, and wait for more information to come in before giving a more definitive speculation.
We’re going to be keeping a weather eye on this and will update the page as more information comes in. To make sure you don’t miss anything, make sure to check back in periodically.
