According to reports, AMD is discontinuing the production of an entire line of video cards of the current generation of Radeon RX 5000, including GPUs such as RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5600 XT, RX 5500 XT.
Rumors about this have appeared before. However, the manufacturer said that video cards will be produced as long as there is a demand for them. Well, the demand, obviously, is still there, but the production of the Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards is still being discontinued.
In any case, it is unclear what the demand is now, but sources close to MyDrivers.com say that the entire line of Radeon RX 5000 is still being discontinued. Moreover, as the source writes, this time we are not talking about any specific models, but about the entire line at once.
The list includes Radeon RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, and RX 5500 XT which seem to have stopped rolling off the assembly line, a little later the same fate will befall the Radeon RX 5600 XT. Even before that, AMD discontinued the Radeon RX 580 8GB and RX 590 8GB.
But soon the sale of the latest graphics card of the Radeon RX 6000 line will begin. On November 18, the Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 models will arrive in stores, and on December 2, the Radeon RX 6900 XT models.
In recent news, Asus has warned about the limited stock of AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT with custom AIB graphics cards arriving one or two weeks later. On the other hand, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X was overclocked to 6.35 GHz breaking many world records at launch.
