It seems the end of the road for the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series!
With the arrival of October, we have entered a full month for AMD. The American silicon giant, which will first introduce Ryzen 5000 series processors on October 8, then introduce the new RX 6000 series graphics cards on October 28. Although it is not certain yet, AMD is expected to introduce 3 or 4 models on October 28th. Sad news came for the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series, which was introduced last year.
We have previously shared the leaked features of the Navi 21, Navi 22 and Navi 23 graphics cards, which are expected to be introduced.
Decision to halt production for AMD Radeon RX 5700 series
According to the information shared by Cowcotland, it was stated that both reference and special design cards for Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT cards will no longer be produced. In this case, the RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT cards available on the market will represent the last members of the existing stock. Due to the reduced supply, some retailers have slightly increased the prices of their cards.
Considering that the new cards will be introduced on October 28, the decision to halt production for the AMD Radeon RX 5700 series was already expected. Apart from the RX 5700 series, the production of the RX 5600 XT (Navi 10) cards, which were released on January 21, continues. However, the interesting situation on the AMD side is that the production of RX 5500 XT and Polaris-based RX 500 graphics cards is continuing.
With the event to be held on 28 October, 3 cards were expected to be introduced in the first place. However, some of the rumors that have emerged recently are that a top rival RTX 3090 may arrive. NVIDIA’s RTX 3000 series graphics cards were introduced with an aggressive price policy.
