Ever since AMD launched Navi, its new GPU architecture at Computex, it was always expected for the production of older cards to decrease with time. Not just that, the fact that even more cards are expected to be launched in the Navi series in the future also puts a huge question mark on the availability of these previous generation GPUs like the Radeon RX 5×0 series, RX Vega 56 and Vega 64.
According to Cowcotland, RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 are indeed at the end of their life and are facing either very limited or completely stopped production. If any store still has these cards available, it could be the last stock they will ever receive.
Coming to the RX 5×0 series, including the RX 560, RX 570, RX 580 and RX 590. These cards do not face the same fate as the Vega 56 and Vega 64, for now. Although their availability in the market is reducing, they are still not at the end of their life. These cards are expected to last at least until the end of Q3 of this year. This could be the exact time we can expect the new Navi cards, RX 5500 and RX 5600 to be launched.
AMD launched its Navi based RX 5700 series of GPUs manufactured on the industry-leading 7nm process at Computex this year. The series includes Radeon RX 5700, RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary edition.
These cards will be available in the market starting from 7th of July. The RX 5700 XT will retail for a price of $449, while the RX 5700 will cost $379.
