Radeon RX 5600 XT vs Radeon RX 6600 benchmarks

In our benchmarks, the Radeon RX 5600 XT beats the Radeon RX 6600 in gaming performance.

The Radeon RX 6600 has a significantly higher core clock speed. This is the frequency at which the graphics core is running at. While not necessarily an indicator of overall performance, this metric can be useful when comparing two GPUs based on the same architecture. In addition, the Radeon RX 6600 also has a significantly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.

As stated by the manufacturer, the Radeon RX 6600 has slightly more memory with 8 GiB of memory compared to 6 GiB. If you're planning at playing games at high resolutions with high-quality textures, you will need a lot of memory.

In addition, the Radeon RX 6600 has a slightly lower TDP at 132 W when compared to the Radeon RX 5600 XT at 150 W. TDP (Thermal Design Power) measures total heat output from the chip.

According to the results of the hardwareDB benchmark utility, the Radeon RX 5600 XT is faster than the Radeon RX 6600.
