Exclusive third party GPU partner of AMD the XFX has secured the brand naming certificate by EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) for it’s upcoming GPUs under it’s proprietary crypt letters and numbers. Easy way to identify GPU generation and performance tier models you have to look at how XFX did make the cryptic letters and digits with Radeon RX 5700 series before. Following new numbers might surprise you a bit because XFX just tends to secure future naming patents to sell in Eurasian countries. Surprisingly, XL extension is added for each GPU which is meant to be Light version of XT cards as you have seen in “Navi 10 XL” chip for RX 5700.
Detailed names can be decrypted by using XFX method applied onto RX 5700 XT making it as “RX-57XT828D6”. XFX takes out “00” to leave it short for SKU listing in retailer websites. So from EEC database anyone might guess precisely that RX99XT is obviously RX 9900 XT. Following models meant by XFX are RX 6500 XT, RX 6600 XT, RX 6700 XT, RX 6800 XT, RX 6900 XT, RX 7500 XT, RX 7600 XT, RX 7700 XT, RX 7800 XT, RX 7900 XT, RX 8500 XT, RX 8600 XT, RX 8700 XT, RX 8800 XT, RX 8900 XT, RX 9500 XT, RX 9600 XT, RX 9700 XT, RX 9800 XT and RX 9900 XT. Few models possess “XL”, “A”, “M” and “P” extensions.
Looks like AMD is sticking with generational sequencing numbers till RX 9000 series cards. Just similar to HD 2000 till HD 8000 series including mobile GPU models of last decade. Best part of this naming scheme is the specific accurate pattern chosen for each segment such as entry level 500, mainstream 600, midrange 700 and high end 800/900 suffixes. Amazingly, this EEC certificate is valid untill 31st December 2025. Solid long term preparation from AMD and XFX is well executed for another 5 years. Anyhow, grain of salt must be taken by own snap readers untill stronger leaks will show up from AMD driver source codes or any trusted benchmarking websites.
