AMD Launches Radeon RX 5600 XT For 279 USD – Up To 20% Quicker Than NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti

AMD has launched its NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti killer within the type of the RX 5600 XT. Boasting anyplace from 5% to 20% extra efficiency (relying on the sport in query) than the RTX 1660 Ti, the AMD Navi 10-equipped GPU goes to be retailing for USD 279 (roughly the identical worth as a 1660 Ti). Our evaluation of the RX 5600 XT has been delayed a bit due to the frequent BIOS updates, however relaxation assured will probably be going up quickly!

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT launched for USD 279

The story of the RX 5600 XT BIOS variations is absolutely attention-grabbing as properly. NVIDIA responded to the approaching launch of the RX 5600 XT by dropping the MSRP on its RTX 2060 (non-SUPER) by USD 50 and AMD responded with not one however two BIOS. In truth, we acquired a 3rd BIOS for the RX 5600 XT simply someday earlier than the critiques have been scheduled to go stay (due to this fact the delay).

The AMD RX 5600 XT options the Navi 10 XLE chip with 2304 cores. Clocked at 1560 MHz, that is the primary card to characteristic 6GB of GDDR6 reminiscence together with a 192-bit bus. The reminiscence clock is 12 Gbps for a lot of playing cards whereas some are delivery with overclocked recollections as properly. This implies you’re looking at a minimal bandwidth of 288 GB/s all the way in which as much as 336 GB/s. The TBP is 150W (and as much as 180W for the OC variants) and the MSRP of 279 USD places it useless heart of NVIDIA’s bread and butter budget-level lineup.

Coming to the reminiscence design, that is the place we begin seeing main variations between the Radeon RX 5700 and the Radeon RX 5600 XT. Whereas the Radeon RX 5700 rocks an Eight GB GDDR6 reminiscence with a 256-bit broad bus interface, the Radeon RX 5600 XT would rock a 6 GB GDDR6 reminiscence with a 192-bit bus interface. The Radeon RX 5700 additionally delivers a better 448 GB/s bandwidth, using the 14 Gbps DRAM dies whereas the Radeon RX 5600 XT will provide 288 GB/s bandwidth, using slower 12 Gbps DRAM dies. The cardboard would require a single Eight-pin energy connector and show outputs embrace a single HDMI 2.0b and triple DisplayPort 1.four ports.

The brand new BIOS that AMD launched not solely will increase the clock speeds of the graphics playing cards but in addition will increase the TBP. In some instances, the reminiscence clock velocity can also be elevated. Which means the efficiency ranges you’re seeing under are literally “conservative” and precise efficiency ought to be even increased. NVIDIA goes to be dealing with quite a lot of warmth with the launch of the brand new RX 5600 XT and that is one thing that outcomes from the truth that the corporate remains to be caught on the 16/14 node whereas AMD GPUs are manufactured on the 7nm node.

When it comes to efficiency, the cardboard outpaces the GTX 1660 TI which prices the identical at $279 and the GTX 1660 SUPER which is similar to the GTX 1660 Ti in efficiency at a worth of $229 US. Some early efficiency exams present that the cardboard does not have sufficient energy to rival the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 which makes issues for it a little bit onerous as EVGA has since released their new RTX 2060 KO version playing cards which begin at $279 US, the identical worth because the RX 5600 XT with out even factoring within the customized mannequin premium. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, then again, is as much as 20% sooner than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER whereas providing added options comparable to RTX, DLSS, and so on.
