AMD RX 5700 series graphics cards will still be around after Big Navi launch

Current-gen GPUs aren’t going anywhere

AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards haven’t been discontinued, the GPU maker has clarified following the suggestion that production on these models has been ceased.

As you may have

seen earlier this week

, the rumor was that AMD has stopped making the RX 5700 and its

5700 XT

sibling ahead of the next-gen

Big Navi launch which is happening on October 28

, in a few weeks’ time.

However, in actual fact, this is not the case, AMD made clear in a statement to

Tom’s Hardware

: “We are continuing to produce the Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards, which deliver exceptional 1440p gaming experiences. We will continue to respond to market demand.”

Stock considerations

Of course, this makes sense, given that buyers will still want options other than the new RX 6000 range post-launch as 2020 rolls on. Despite AMD’s promises that

stock levels of the new graphics cards won’t be a problem

, and that it won’t run into the same trouble as Nvidia, it remains to be seen how supply and demand will work with the

next-gen RDNA 2 cards


Particularly if Nvidia’s stock issues persist and Big Navi GPUs are therefore being bought by more gamers because they’re effectively the only option.

We could also – fingers crossed – see some nice price drops with the RX 5700 graphics card as time rolls on.

Expectations are running high for AMD’s flagship Big Navi GPU

, which is expected to deliver performance pitched

somewhere between the RTX 3070 and 3080

; but obviously in terms of the battle against Nvidia, a great deal will depend on exactly how AMD prices its new graphics cards.
