AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
The Radeon RX 5600 XT is an AMD GPU that was released in January 2020. This GPU is very good at gaming with a score of 43% in our PC benchmark.
The Radeon RX 5600 XT has 6 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 328 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 192 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 5600 XT GPU core runs at a frequency of 1130 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1560 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 5600 XT supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 150W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
