    Radeon RX 5700 reference graphic cards production discontinued by AMD


    A few days ago, French website Cowcotland reported that AMD has stopped producing its Radeon RX 5700 series reference graphics cards. After manufacturing all the AMD Radeon RX 5700 cards it needs, AMD has let vendors take the precedence. Many users will not be happy with this move but there is more to it.

    AMD released its statement as follows: “We expect there will continue to be strong supply of Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards in the market, with multiple designs starting to arrive from our AIB partners. As is standard practice, once the inventory of the AMD reference cards has been sold, AMD will continue to support new partner designs with Radeon RX 5700 series reference design kit.”

    Radeon twitter handle followers have noticed a series of 3rd party cards popping up like that of ASUS ROG STRIX model.

    It seems that enough supply of Radeon RX 5700 already exists to last for a while so AMD has stopped its production. It also makes sense to point out that if AMD believes that its reference cards would continue to have a high demand in future then only it is rational for the tech giant to continue production.

    According to reports, AMD is still dealing with Polaris cards so it might be the case that the company wants to prevent itself from running into the same situation with its reference Navi. It will be interesting to see how far the AMD Radeon RX 5700 parts will overclock with the discontinuation of reference models.

    As soon as the news broke out, many seemed to have assumed that’s the end of life for AMD graphics cards but that is not the case at all since we can see that it has no problem with the supply of 7nm chip. This also indicates that Navi will remain in the market until the next chip arrives.
