ASUS releases Radeon RX 5600 XT ROG STRIX TOP with 14 Gbps

ASUS is bringing a TOP graphics card model back to Radeon lineup.

ASUS Radeon RX reaches the TOP

It has been a while since ASUS released the TOP model for the Radeon series. This time, however, it was not really planned. ASUS basically made the same decision as MSI. Rather than update original models to full specs (in that regard it means 14 Gbps memory), they released a new card featuring not only higher GPU clocks but also memory.

This means that the RX 5600 XT ROG STRIX OC will be identical to the TOP except for the memory. MSI did the exact same thing with GAMING X, in fact, they sent out a GAMING Z BIOS to reviewers and told them to ‘rename’ a product they are reviewing.

It should theoretically be possible to flash a TOP BIOS into the OC model, especially since ASUS ROG STRIX has dual BIOS, but be sure that you know what you are doing. There might be a technical reason why ASUS wants a new SKU.

Either way, the RX 5600 XT from ASUS have identical game clocks of 1660 MHz in gaming mode and 1670 MHz in boost mode. As a reminder OC mode requires ASUS software. When it comes to AMD’s boost clock, originally RX5600XT cards from ASUS was 1640 MHz, but this has changed to 1750 MHz in gaming mode and up to 1770 MHz in OC mode (the highest so far).
