GIGABYTE just gave the Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G a major, MAJOR performance boost!

Find out WHAT happened, and how YOU can enjoy this FREE performance boost too!

 

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.

In this table, we compare the specifications of the newly-boosted GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC with the original launch specifications, as well as the Radeon RX 5700, and the reference Radeon RX 5600 XT specifications.

This BIOS update totally changes the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC. It is much faster than the reference Radeon RX 5600 XT specifications.

In fact, it has higher texture and pixel fill rates than Radeon RX 5700! The Radeon RX 5700 only beats it in memory size, and memory bandwidth.
