AMD Graphics Partner ASRock Unveils Radeon RX 5600 XT Specification


Rumors circulating recently that the AMD Radeon RX 5600 series graphics cards are coming very soon may well prove to be correct as GPU partner AMD ASRock accidentally leaked information and specifications for an upcoming RX 5600 XT SKU.

Just over a week ago the guys at VideoCardz got a tip from Reddit user _rogame that AMD’s new cards are likely to offer a 30% performance improvement over the Radeon. RX 5500 XT with leaked information appearing on the 3DMark database of an alleged Radeon RX 5600 XT SKU with 12 Gbps memory at 1500 MHz clock speed and 6144 MB memory capacity. L It was speculated that it would be the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT since the company hasn’t released a 6GB card in years.

These rumors have all but been confirmed now, with VideoCardz having detected a leak from ASRock itself listing a datasheet for the OC Radeon RX 5600 XT Challenger D 6G card, which we can now assume will be released in the very near future. and includes 2304 stream processors like the Radeon RX 5700 non-XT cards.

As previous rumors suggested, the leaked specification of the Radeon RX 5600 XT Challenger D 6G OC actually includes 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM with 12 Gbps of bandwidth and 192-bit memory bus. The base frequency which reads 1235 MHz base, 1460 MHz boost, and 1620 MHz game clock is also listed in the ASRock specification. Since this is a factory overclocked card, the game clock is most likely the result of internal ASRock overlocking.

Another thing to note in the ASrock 5600 XT specification is the listing that says “2sd Gen 7nm GPU ”, which further fuels rumors that the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT will be based on a refined RDNA architecture of AMD Navi 2x. However, this could just be how ASRock refers to all Navi GPUs with Vega 20 being considered Gen 7nm, so this rumor may well turn out to be far from the truth.

KitGuru says: Looking at the potential specs of the Radeon RX 5600 XT, it appears to be placed much closer to the RX 5700 series and could provide a practical alternative for overlock to compete with mid-range Nvidia cards such as the 2060 and 2060 super maybe. What do you think of this information and how do you expect the RX 5600 XT to compare to Nvidia’s offerings?
