PowerColor updates Radeon RX 5600 XT specs to 14 Gbps
Last week we reported that AMD has released a new vBIOS for Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card. The first board partner to quickly change the specs was Sapphire. The new BIOS increases TBP to 160W (from the original 150W). It also unlocks 14 Gbps memory speed, which was locked down by AMD for the initial Navi 10-based RX 5600 XT.
PowerColor has today confirmed in an email that the initial batch of cards will not have the new BIOS. It means that your card may not be 14 Gbps out of the box. PowerColor, however, says that new BIOS will be available for download and detailed instructions will be provided to update the card to newer specs.
The RX 5600 XT Red Devil now has much higher frequencies. From the initial 1570 MHz to 1660 MHz (game mode) and 1620 to 1750 MHz (boost mode).
