I have a couple mid-range Ryzen builds and both have a GTX 750 Ti. I want to replace the two cards. I want to go AMD because I use Linux and don't want to install a proprietary driver. I also do not want to use an auxiliary 6 or 8 pin connector. I want the card to be bus-powered because both are in tiny ITX enclosures . I only play older games. Does AMD have a card that fits this criteria? Thank you.

They do have RX550/RX560 without any 6/8pin PCIe but that's as good as you can buy right now. MSI Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC for the 560 & various makers (Powercolor/ASRock/Sapphire/MSI/Gigabyte for sure) make ITX RX 550's with 2/4GB of GDDR5. Nothing NAVI based down there, even the 5300 OEM is 135W with a 6 pin.

Obviously more options if you can fit a bigger than ITX card inside.
