AMD RX 6750 XT GPU rumors upset users at first glance


This GPU seems to be no quicker than its predecessor, according to a leaked benchmark.

One of AMD’s reported upgraded graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6750 XT, has just been released with a leaked benchmark that, on the surface, seems to be disappointing – but with some apparent limitations.

The RX 6750 XT was observed being tested in GFXBench by Komachi, a well-known hardware leaker on Twitter, as reported by VideoCardz.


In the Aztec Ruins High Tier test, the RX 6750 XT is supposedly able to reach 366.5 frames per second (fps) — scarcely any quicker than the current 6700 XT that this GPU replaces.

The 6700 XT runs at 362.2 frames per second, therefore the 6750 XT is just 1.2 percent faster in this test – by no means a significant one. At this time, continue to use salt as you normally would.

Analysis: Extreme care must be used in this situation.


It’s important to keep in mind that every leak is just a partial depiction of a pre-release GPU’s capabilities, so don’t get too excited about it just yet. The 6750 XT is still under testing, so this won’t be an accurate representation of its full performance.

Real-world gaming performance is expected to show a wider gap between this refresh and its predecessor, although this leak shows that this gap may not be as large as we’d think (mind you, we wouldn’t expect it to be a large gulf, after all).

Aside from the 6700 XT, the 6750 XT is slated to have a faster VRAM, and AMD is said to be working on increasing the clock rates of the 6×50-XT refreshes (there are three in all). However, if this test is any accurate indication of what’s to come, then clock speed increases may be minor (remember that the leak mentioning much higher clocks was about the flagship successor, the 6950 XT).


In the meanwhile, we’ll simply have to wait and see what these reported models’ genuine specifications are, but we shouldn’t have to wait long. The upgraded GPUs are expected to arrive in mid-May, and a recent regulatory filing for the 6750 XT adds weight to the hypothesis that these products will arrive sooner rather than later.

Additionally, AMD has a tight deadline since RDNA 3 graphics cards will be released in the second half of 2022, so Team Red will have to allow enough time between these upgrades and the next-generation GPUs to keep consumers interested (RDNA 3 will be a huge step up, if the rumour mill is right).

It’s also possible that the 6700 XT will be reduced with the launch of the 6750 XT, and the same may be true of all these updates. For those seeking for a cheap AMD card, this might be another another price drop in the GPU market, which is already in the process of returning to normal. Fingers crossed.
