Street Price: £255 GBP - $279 USD
Having already released the RX 5500 and RX 5700, it was only a matter of time before we saw AMD push the RX 5600 out. Over in the NVIDIA camp we’ve seen a smattering of GPUs hit the market, covering all eventualities and price-points; a pre-emptive move which intended to deliver a crushing defeat in the mid-range GPU segment.
Prior to the RX 5600 XT, AMD claimed that their RX 5600 XT would easily compete with NVIDIA’s GTX 1660 Ti. Where the 1660 Ti struggled to achieve an average of 60 FPS at 1080p Ultra, the 5600 XT should pull through and deliver in excess of 60 FPS.
So, the RX 5600 XT can be regarded as the 1080p champion in AMD’s lineup – allowing gamers to max out on their detail preset at while still enjoying more than playable frame-rates. Today, we’ll be exploring what the Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT has to offer, with its factory overclock and Dual-X cooling.
Prior to the RX 5600 XT launch, NVIDIA dropped the price of the RTX 2060 to around the $299 USD marker, putting this particular card within reach in terms of pricing and possibly performance.
Can the RX 5600 XT take on the GTX 1660 Ti, and perhaps even the RTX 2060? Let’s find out!
