AMD, as expected, today began selling its new mid-range graphics card Radeon RX 5600 XT. The card is positioned as a solution for “ultimate” gaming in 1080p resolution, and even before its release, it managed to make a lot of noise.
Radeon RX 5600 XT specs
The Radeon RX 5600 XT video card is built on the Navi 10 GPU with 2304 stream processors, 144 texture and 64 raster blocks. AMD has announced for this GPU the average frequency in games will be 1375MHz and the maximum boost frequency will be 1560MHz. There is also 6GB of GDDR6 memory with an effective frequency of 12GHz, connected via a 192-bit bus and have a bandwidth of up to 288GB/s.
It will be important to note here that in reality the AMD graphics card will be able to work with much higher clock speeds, and this applies both to the GPU and memory. Last week it became known that in response to the price reduction of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, AMD has prepared a new version of vBIOS for the Radeon RX 5600 XT. The new firmware increases the power consumption of the video card by 10 watts, and also pretty much raises the clock speeds. Sapphire has already confirmed this by updating the specifications of its Pulse Radeon RX 5600 XT.
RX 5600 XT or GTX 166p Super?
According to AMD, the new Radeon RX 5600 XT outperforms the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. AMD’s new product is capable of providing an average of up to 80fps in AAA games, as well as an average of up to 120fps in popular multiplayer games.
Release date and price of Radeon RX 5600 XT
