Released in 2022, the Radeon RX 6500 XT is a GPU from AMD.
According to our GPU Benchmark, this GPU is a good card for gaming with a score of 30%.
The Radeon RX 6500 XT has 4 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 140 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 64 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 6500 XT GPU core runs at a frequency of 2310 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 2815 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 6500 XT supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 107 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.
