Lenovo “Accidently” reveals AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT 4GB for the Legion T5 Gaming PC
Twitter user KOMACHI_ENSAKA located a file from a few days ago, mentioning that a 4GB GGDR6 memory-laden AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT card would be an alternate option to the newest Legion T5 PC by Lenovo.
Legion T5 gaming system confirmed to launch with AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT 4GB onboard
The file has mysteriously disappeared from the Internet, removed by Lenovo themselves. However, through the magic of Internet caching through Google Cache, the file is still available. The missing document reveals that the newest AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT will offer 4GB GDDR6 memory along with an HDMI 2.1 port and a DisplayPort 1.4a port.

We see in the following document that it also lists the predecessor to the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT, the Radeon RX 5500 GPU, and reveals major differences between the two lines. The newest AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT GPU version will receive the newest display connectivity with the current RDNA2 structure. It also reveals that the max resolution is set to 7680 x 4320 @ 60Hz in both graphic ports, as well as utilizing DirectX 12 technology.
The card would not be able to operate in any mining algorithm, especially ETH. The top model will feature a TDP slightly above 75W and as such, will require external power connectors to boot. The card is expected to launch in mid-January so expect an announcement at CES 2022.
The card is expected to aim at the entry-level segment with MSRPs of sub $200-$250 US. Since the Radeon RX 6600 series is already positioned in the premium 1080p gaming segment, expect the Navi 24 GPUs to be aimed at the entry-level 1080p gaming market. But given that AMD has raised the prices of RDNA 2 GPUs and alerted its AIB partners to do the same too, the entry-level market may end up in another mess for budget builders trying to get on something after years of wait.
What appears to be lacking from the above information is the detailed configuration of the graphics card and some other minor specifications. From previous leaks, it has been reported that the card will showcase the full Navi 24 GPU technology packed with 1024 Stream Processors.
