AMD introduces Radeon RX 5600 and 5600 XT


of Antonio Funes
With the AMD Radeon RX 5600 and RX 5600 XT, the US company presented two new graphics cards at CES 2020 (Las Vegas). While the Radeon RX 5600 XT will be available to retail consumers from January 20, AMD offers the Radeon RX 5600 only for manufacturers of complete PCs.

AMD has the new graphics cards Radeon RX 5600 and RX 5600 XT presented, This our colleagues from PC Games Hardware also report, It was already clear beforehand that there would be a Radeon 5600 series. Because there is already a Radeon 5500 and 5700 series, so there was a gap that still had to be closed. Shortly before Wehnachten, we had put a special online for the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT including general graphics card buying advice. The fact that AMD is using CES 2020 for the launch was also suspected in advance.

AMD Radeon RX 5600 and RX 5600 XT

Since it is an official presentation of AMD, are already the technical data of the two new graphics card models clear. Just like the Radeon 5500 series and contrary to the 5700 series, only the XT version of the Radeon RX 5600 will also be available individually. The AMD Radeon RX 5600 is reserved for companies that install the bolide in pre-fabricated PCs. For us, the Radeon RX 5600 XT is particularly interesting – it works like the AMD Radeon RX 5700 (XT) with a Navi 10 GPU, but with a few drawbacks. With a bandwidth of 288 GB / second, the graphics memory is also significantly slower than the larger brothers, which offer 448 GB / second. For this, the Radeon RX 5600 XT should of course be offered more cheaply than a Radeon RX 5700 – but what is the situation here and who is considered a competitor?

Release on January 20 for around 280 euros

AMD is quoting a price of $ 279 for the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT, presumably this will also be the euro price. The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT would be significantly more expensive than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super, which is available from 230 euros. The discontinued RTX 2060 from Nvidia is available from 300 euros, the newer RTX 2060 Super costs more than 380 euros and is no longer available as a competitor. At AMD, however, the cheapest model of a Radeon RX 5700 is available in-house at AMD. So it will be very exciting to see how the Radeon RX 5600 XT performs and what prices will show up after the release for January 20. We will also release a special for the new AMD graphics card after the release.
