AMD Radeon RX 5600M
Released in 2020, the Radeon RX 5600M is a GPU from AMD. According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a good card for gaming with a score of 32%.
The Radeon RX 5600M has 6 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 281 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 192 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 5600M GPU core runs at a frequency of 1035 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1265 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 5600M 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.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon RX 5600M are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 150 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
