Defunct Radeon RX 5900 XT and unreleased Intel platform. There is an interesting testing of components that are not yet available for sale



Video cards of the Radeon RX 6800 line are already well known to us, but today information has appeared on the Web that indicates that the older model was originally conceived as a Radeon RX 5900 XT.

Recall that the RX 5000 line is limited to the RX 5700 XT model – there are simply no more efficient first-generation Navi cards. Probably the current RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT were originally going to be named RX 5900 and RX 5900 XT respectively.

The fact is that the source got hold of somewhere a prototype of ASRock’s RX 5900 XT video card, and this is almost a copy of the serial RX 6800 XT Phantom Gaming card. Initially, it did not work to launch the unusual adapter, since there was no support from the driver, but the BIOS firmware from RX 6800 XT Taichi fixed everything. As a result, the source was able to conduct tests.

Of course, the results were as close as possible to the regular RX 6800 XT, but what is interesting is that the system also contained an engineering sample of an Intel Rocket Lake processor and an ASRock Z590 Pro4 motherboard. That is, all three main components are unreleased, which is quite interesting.
