AMD Launches Radeon 5600XT GPU
Posted: August 17,2022
AMD expanded its NAVI series portfolio this week by unveiling the mid-range 5600XT discrete graphics card.
The card is currently retailing for $279 and sits comfortably between its cheaper 5500 sibling and the 2k-targeting 5700 and 5700XT models. However, future retail prices are likely to be determined by partner brands such as Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and Sapphire.
The card is based on the same successful RDNA 7nm architecture as its predecessors. It features 36 Compute Units and 2304 Stream Processors, much like the Radeon 5700.
However, the clock speeds differ. 5600XT features a standard ‘game clock’ of 1375mhz and a max ‘boost’ clock of 1560mhz and has a total of 7.19 teraflops of computing speed. It also comes with 6GB of GDDR6 ram memory, and its power consumption is rated at 150W.
AMD is hoping that the card will become the ultimate solution for gamers. The objective is to provide an unmatched experience for those gamers who plan to stick with FullHD resolution for years to come without having to reduce any graphics settings.
