AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT | RX 5600 : A Quick Primer!

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT and Radeon RX 5600 use the same Navi GPU as the Radeon RX 5700, with 10.3 billion transistors fabricated using the 7 nm process

The Radeon RX 5600 XT is essentially the Radeon RX 5700, with slower clock speeds and a 192-bit memory bus instead of a 256-bit memory bus.

The Radeon RX 5600 maintains the same slower clock speeds and 192-bit memory bus, but has some stream processors disabled.

They both have a lower TDP of 150 watts, 6 GB of GDDR6 memory, and have a PCI Express 4.0 x16 interface.

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Performance

AMD is targeting the Radeon RX 5600 XT at gamers who are looking to upgrade from 3+ year old cards like the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.

In their internal tests, it handily beats that 3.5 year old card by 55% on average – a significant performance difference.
