AMD Might Discontinue the Production of an Entire Line of Video Cards, Radeon RX 5000, RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5600 XT and RX 5500 XT

We have some sad news for you. For some, this is not important, but for many of us is. AMD is discontinuing an entire line of video cards of the current generation of Radeon RX 5000.

Our sources told us that RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5600 XT, and RX5500 XT are going to be terminated, despite the past announcement where AMD said that they will discount them the moment when the demand for them stops. Well, it did not stop, so why did they decide to do this?

Before this was official, AMD discounted Radeon RX 580 8GB and RX 590 8GB. A whole line of graphic cards got pulled out from the market, but a new one is coming our way very soon. In 7 days, the Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 will be released in stores, and a little later than that, on December 2nd, we will be able to purchase the newest Radeon RX 6900 XT models.

What are your thoughts about this decision? Does it affect you? Let’s discuss this in the comment section below.

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. This may be a good thing (in a sense) in that AMD can maximize production of their 6000 series. AMD will be able to use up TSMC capacity that was for the 5000 series to replace them with 6000 series. The value proposition for the new chips are so much higher that buyers will benefit by have more of the newer chips that can be placed in older mother boards.
