This year will be a much quieter one for new graphics card releases, with NVIDIA leading the charge and continuing to dominate with the GTX 11 series that will usher in GDDR6, but what about AMD?

According to industry sources of mine, AMD will be releasing a new Radeon RX 500X series family, which should be around 5-6% faster than the RX 500 series. A new 'X' series makes more sense than a full push into the RX 600 series, as the RX 500X series won't be offering anything new.

AMD will reportedly be releasing the Radeon RX 500X series sometime in June-July, which should be able to counter the lower/mid-range graphics card market once NVIDIA stamps down again on the higher-end GTX 1170/1180 markets.

There's not much news here as the name of the card and 5-6% additional performance was the only thing I could squeeze out of my source.
