AMD launches Radeon RX 5600 XT at 279 USD

Today AMD launches its latest Radeon RX graphics card, the RX 5600 XT. 

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT – Navi 10 for masses

The Radeon RX 5600 XT is a third Navi-10 desktop model in RX 5000 lineup. This card features 2304 Stream Processors, so just as many as RX 5700 non-XT. This is undoubtedly, a very interesting decision by AMD, especially considering the price.

AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT features 6GB of GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit interface. The official specs put 12 Gbps memory cap on the cards, but board partners can now boost that number to 14 Gbps. This increases the bandwidth from 288 Gb/s to 336 Gb/s,

The RX 5600 XT has a game clock of 1375 MHz. The official boost clock is 1560 MHz, but again, AIB cards will go up to 1750 MHz, depending on a cooling solution and pre-configured graphics power. The TBP for 5600XT is officially 150W but there are models going up to 180W (Gigabyte Gaming OC).

The RX 5600 XT is available starting from today (January 21st) for 279 USD but of course, custom models will cost slightly more.

A new BIOS

Shorty after NVIDIA announced a new price for GeForce RTX 2060 non-SUPER, AMD responded by providing better vBIOS for their board partners. The specs announced at CES 2020 are the minimum set of specifications and board partners can change them if they wish to.

The new BIOSes obviously change a lot. From a 10 to 20% increase in clock speeds, higher memory bandwidth, but also higher TGP and, as a result, new fan profiles.

The following table shows recent BIOS updates. Some of these are not yet available, but we know they are coming. It is expected that the initial batch of RX 5600 XT cards will carry old BIOSes, while models produced later will feature updated specs.
