AMD announces the new Radeon RX 5600 XT, touting it as the ultimate 1080p gaming card

Along side the new Ryzen 4000 series mobile CPUs, AMD also announced a new graphics card at CES 2020 called the Radeon RX 5600 XT.

It's based on AMD's RDNA architecture and is built using a 7nm process. Looking at its specifications, we can see that it's closely related to the Radeon 5700 XT since the two share the same number of cores.

Here are the Radeon RX 5600 XT key specifications:

  • 36 compute units
  • 2304 cores
  • 1375MHz game clock
  • Up to 1560MHz boost clock
  • 6GB GDDR6 memory

In terms of positioning, the Radeon RX 5600 XT will fill the considerable gap – in terms of both price and performance – between the Radeon RX 5500 XT and Radeon RX 5700.

AMD also calls it the ultimate graphics card for 1080p gaming and showed off performance figures against NVIDIA's comparably-priced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

AMD says the Radeon RX 5600 XT will be available from 21 January 2020 and will be priced at US$279 (~S$378).
