Average Bench: 83.5% (88th of 714)

Based on 112,731 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 731F Models: AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT, ASUS Radeon RX 5600 XT

The 6GB AMD 5600 XT is a slightly cheaper, BIOS restricted, version of the 8GB 5700. The majority of 5600 XT’s should operate reasonably quietly as the single fan reference design was skipped for this release. Although the reference design is absent there are, however, several variants which range in performance between the GTX 1660S and the RTX 2060. Performance is more varied than usual because of last minute BIOS changes. The best versions of the 5600 XT (Sapphire Pulse) were distributed to reviewers (good luck finding one of these at MSRP). These models are capable, with BIOS updates, of performance that almost matches the RTX 2060. At $280 USD the higher performing SKUs could make sense for users that are happy to tinker with or return faulty hardware. During our GTAV testing reflection MSAA resulted in very poor, almost matt, reflection fidelity (the same bug appears on several Navi and Vega cards). Whilst playing Project Cars 2 our 5600 XT PC crashed several times. Given the vast number of software (and hardware) problems since day one of the 5000 series launch, it’s ironic that AMD’s latest 20.1.3 driver does not even offer an option to skip the installation of a boatload of new system shortcuts, gimmicks and other bloatware. [Jan '20 GPUPro]

I have had so many crashes with this card (driver timeouts specifically) that I'll never use AMD again. This includes CPUs and GPUs. If you do research, you'll see that it's not an uncommon issue over a wide variety of systems. I have tried everything to fix it including ensuring there's good power and cooling along with every imaginable tune.—Dec '21

I recommend using the AMD professional drivers for a bit more quality and stability. Obviously, Beta drivers deliver the latest performance improvements. It’s also good to check for vBIOS updates.—Jan '21

The XFX put out a great version of this card for not such a big price, and after a good overclock, I could even run the games at 1440p with decent performance!

Released 21st January 2020, this sub-300 GPU is aimed for 144fps+ 1080p gaming or 75fps 1440p gaming at that price. After you bought this card, make sure that you do VBIOS flash to gain 10% additional performance.

Really good for the price. Used it when I did the specs for a friend's new computer. We used two of them with crossfire. It works amazingly in his system.

Amazing card for value. Heard there were some crashing issues back in 2020 but with the latest Sapphire Bios + AMD drivers, its stability is rock solid.
