AMD is gearing to launch a new graphics card as was promised. The latest from AMD, the Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card based on the RDNA 2 GPU architecture is supposed to launch this year on October 28. However, ahead of its launch, a few details about the AMD graphics card along with the Big Navy have been leaked online in its early engineering cards.

The netizens were able to decode the pictures. From the single-sided video memory on the PCB, it could be deciphered that the video memory bit width of the card may only be 256-bit.

After the leak, there was a rumor going around that the two new graphics cards could also be one of many engineering test boards for Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards based on AMD RDNA 2 GPU architecture.

The picture showcases that the graphics card uses a longer PCB, but the final retail version may quite be different. Although the pictures do not show any specific SKU, the label still carries the words “XT” on it. Previously everyone thought that the Big Navy may support HBM2e high-bandwidth cache; however, the latest pictures of the engineering card show this to be a GDDR6 type. It is said that the card uses 16GB of GDDR6 video memory, with a bit width of only 256-bit. If this turns out to be true, the engineering card should use a single-sided 8 (3+3+2) video memory layout.

Taking all of this into consideration, the card could come equipped with up to 32GB of double-sided video memory. This, of course, would not be the case if AMD comes up with a new technology that has the ability to increase the video memory bit width or bandwidth.

It is reported that in order to avoid the use of double-sided video memory, AMD has been using a single 16GB (2GB) 16 GBPS GDDR6 particle (bandwidth 512 GB/s) since the beginning of 2018.
