Detailed Specs

AMD has its third Navi-based graphics card with the new Radeon RX 5600 XT, following the flagship Radeon RX 5700 XT and then the Radeon RX 5500 XT late last year. The new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card falls right in the middle of these two and will do battle for the $250-$350 market which is one of the most important markets for gamers.

We have a new GPU from AMD that is slightly tweaked to the specs here, something that happened in the days before the NDA release. Everything is the same apart from the TBP being increased 10W, up from the 150W on the deck here, to 160W.

Inside, the Navi GPU here has 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors, and up to 7.19 TFLOPs of compute performance. We have GPU clocks of up to 1375MHz for game clocks, and up to 1560MHz boost clock while the Radeon RX 5600 XT has 6GB of GDDR6 and a TBP of 160W.

AMD's new RDNA architecture is much more efficient over the previous-gen GCN architecture, with a 42% increase in performance over the Radeon RX 590 and 33% less power consumption. This results in a great gain of 2.1x the perofrmance-per-watt of the Radeon RX 590 for the new Radeon RX 5600 XT.
