GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G

When GIGABYTE announced their Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G, it was really just another overclocked version of the Radeon RX 5600 XT, no different from the SAPPHIRE PULSE RX 5600 XT we just reviewed.

But they just released a BIOS update that not only makes it much, MUCH faster… it also makes the Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G the fastest RX 5600 XT card currently available in the market.
