The reports of the death of Radeon RX 5700 have been greatly exaggerated. Earlier today, French tech site Cowcotland revealed that AMD would discontinue its RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT Graphics cards instead of concentrating on the new Big Navi cards that it would show to the public on October 28.
“We’re continuing to manufacture the Radeon RX 5700 series of graphics cards that offer outstanding 1440p gaming experience,” company said in an email to Tom’s Hardware. “We will continue to respond to market demands.”
Although it is true that AMD confirms that they’re about to tell us all about the RX 6000 graphics card lines using the big Navi architecture, on October 28th, there are no other reports that will soon be known about the RX 5700 or RX 5700 XT.
Which makes sense with new graphics cards sold seconds after the launch, there’s still plenty of space for older alternatives on the market. And since the RX 5700 cards are around 10% faster than their RTX 2060 line equivalents while coming in cheaper than the RTX 3070 would, there’s still space for them among AMD fans who don’t intend to upgrade to 4 K and don’t want to wait for new cards to be readily accessible.
