PowerColor RX 5600 XT series graphics cards appear in ECC database

It looks like AMD plans to release RX 5600 XT series GPUs in early 2020.

More and more evidence of AMD's long-rumoured RX 5600 XT has come to light, with multiple PowerColor SKUs being spotted on the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) database. These listings were first spotted by @KOMACHI_ENSAKA on Twitter. 

Right now, AMD's RX 5600 XT is rumoured to be a cut-down version of AMD's Radeon RX 5700 series, shipping with fewer stream processors and a smaller 192-bit memory bus. This places this graphics card between the RX 5500 XT and the Radeon RX 5700. The RX 5600 XT's memory bus size can be guessed because of the 6GB VRAM listing of PowerColor's RX 5600 XT models, as a 6GB graphics card requires a memory bus size of this calibre. It also fits neatly between the 128-bit bus of the RX 5500 XT and the 256-bit memory bus of the RX 5700 series. 

The RX 5600 XT will compete with Nvidia's GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1660 Ti, sitting within a price range of between £200 and £260. Any higher or lower would place this graphics card too close to RX 5500 XT and RX 5700 territory. 

AMD's RX 5600 XT is expected to be revealed in January 2020, with PowerColor's recently revealed RX 5700 ITX design likely forming the basis of the company's baseline RX 5600 XT, assuming the graphics card is indeed a cut-down RX 5700 series GPU.  

Gigabyte have also had several RX 5600 XT series graphics cards listed on the ECC website

AMD wth are you doing? Why release a weaker card with 8GB then follow it up with a faster card with 6GB of memory?

Just shooting yourselves in the foot. It'll confuse people and decreases your pricing power.Quote

Nvidia is constantly releasing GPUs because they can and they have. AMD GPU division doesn't. They barely scraped 3 GPUs and went in "Just release something" panic mode. Doesn't matter if it makes no sense we need to release something to be in the news.Quote

Well, there are 4GB RX 5500 XT cards.

This is not as bad as Nvidia, who released their GTX 1060 3GB when the GTX 1050 Ti has 4GB of VRAM and no 2GB option. Nevermind the fact that the 6GB model also featured more CUDA cores, making the GTX 1060 name hugely misleading IMHO.

I wouldn't call it shooting themselves in the foot, but it is confusing.Quote

In theory they could make 12GB and 16GB versions of the 5600XT and 5700XT too, someone probably will for the weird HPC edge cases where that makes sense(Like the 16GB Polaris cards), but at the end of the day if you want a bus width between 128-bits and 256-bit you've gotta take a 192-bit bus and suddenly your GDDR chips need to come in multiples of 3 whether that fits with your stack or not.Quote

Exactly. In most situations memory bandwidth trumps capacity. The RTX 2080 Ti doesn't have 11GB of VRAM because games need it, it's because a GPU that strong needs that much VRAM to offer enough memory bandwidth over a wide bus.Quote
