Sapphire PULSE AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6G GDDR6 detailed review

Sapphire PULSE AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6G GDDR6 Review Verdict The Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT is no doubt one of the only RX 5600 XT cards you should get since it features better build quality and can handle higher memory clocks. The fact that the RX 5600 […]

AMD’s new RDNA-based Radeon RX 5000 graphics cards have turned out to be quite an improvement over their GCN cards. The RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 have proven themselves to be quite competitive with NVIDIA’s graphics cards and have even bested the competition in a lot of video games. The RX 5600 XT is very close to the RX 5700 in terms of specifications and is expected to be just as good. However, the budget RX 5500 XT which came out about a month ago turned out to be a little underwhelming. It was powerful but NVIDIA has so many cards competing in the segment that the RX 5500 XT has had a hard time establishing a proper footing. This is especially true for the budget card in India given how the local pricing was a little higher than expected. Hopefully, AMD has taken into account while deciding the price of the RX 5600 XT.

The Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT that we have here is the absolute souped-up version from among all the partner cards. ASUS, PowerColor and MSI reportedly have similar configurations and there’s more to be said about “configurations” with the RX 5600 XT. Let’s take a closer look at the Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT.

The configuration of the RX 5600 XT GPU is the absolute same as the RX 5700. It’s the exact same GPU with slightly lower clocks for the reference model. The only physical difference is that the memory has been reduced by 2 GB and accordingly has a reduced bus-width owing to the fewer memory chips connected. The memory bandwidth is rated for 288 GB/s at reference specs but that changed after the “bait-and-switch BIOS upgrade”. However, not all partner cards can meet the higher specs that is made available due to the BIOS upgrade so there will be plenty of performance differences between partner cards in the market.
