Gigabyte’s newest GPU submitting with the Eurasian Financial Fee (ECC) has let slip about an AMD Radeon graphics card that can additional flesh out the RX 5000 sequence. Referred to as the RX 5600 XT, the GPU will sit between the prevailing RX 5700 and 5500 XT fashions, providing 6GB of GDDR6. We wouldn’t be shocked if this card will get an official unveiling at CES in January 2020.
AMD’s Navi graphics line launched in July 2019 with the RX 5700 and 5700 XT, debuting alongside the brand new Ryzen 3000 processors to a lot acclaim. Their new RDNA structure on a TSMC 7nm course of allowed for higher efficiency and effectivity than previous generations, and made them aggressive with Nvidia’s new Tremendous RTX playing cards. The RX 5500 debuted in December and offered stable competitors for Nvidia’s entry-level 16 sequence GPUs just like the 1650 Tremendous. The RX 5600 XT ought to compete with the likes of the GTX 1660 Tremendous and 1660 Ti, changing AMD’s Vega 56 within the product stack.
That’s principally speculative for now, however primarily based on present market positions for present AMD GPUs, it’s an affordable guess to make till we study extra concerning the specs and capabilities of the 5600 XT. What we do know, due to Gigabyte’s ECC submitting, through VideoCardz, is that the 5600 XT will include 6GB of GDDR6 reminiscence by default, however there will likely be scope for manufacturing facility overclocked variations. Gigabyte itself has listed two 5600 XTs, one a typical “Eagle,” mannequin, with the opposite an “Eagle OC” variant, suggesting some manufacturing facility clock enhancements.
Earlier studies from VideoCardz additionally urged that the 6GB of reminiscence can be paired with a 192-bit reminiscence bus. That will imply will probably be constructed on a cut-down Navi 10 GPU — the identical one discovered within the RX 5700 and 5700 XT.
Though we might want to wait to listen to extra earlier than we will actually decide the potential efficiency from this card, with CES 2020 simply weeks away, we probably gained’t have to carry out for lengthy. AMD is anticipated to debut new Ryzen 4000 CPUs for laptops (primarily based on the Zen 2 structure on the core of its Ryzen 3000 desktop chips) so a GPU announcement like this is able to go a great distance towards fleshing out its presence on the present. At CES 2019, we got a glimpse of the Radeon VII, the primary high-end GPU AMD had launched since 2017. Whereas that was a short-lived experiment forward of the 5700 XT’s launch, it nonetheless made waves. A 5600 XT would probably achieve this as nicely, at a vastly completely different value.
