In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB.

The Vega Frontier has a 415 MHz higher core clock speed and 112 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5600 XT. This results in the Vega Frontier providing 239 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Vega Frontier has a 415 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5600 XT and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Vega Frontier providing 26.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 5600 XT was released over a year more recently than the Vega Frontier, and so the RX 5600 XT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Vega Frontier.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Vega Frontier has 10240 MB more video memory than the RX 5600 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the RX 5600 XT has superior memory performance.

The RX 5600 XT has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Vega Frontier, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5600 XT is noticeably better than the Vega Frontier.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB has 4096. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5600 XT is 2396 and the actual shader performance of the Vega Frontier is 4260. The Vega Frontier having 1864 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Vega Frontier delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5600 XT.

The RX 5600 XT transistor size technology is 7 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Vega Frontier. This means that the RX 5600 XT is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Vega Frontier.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB requires 150 Watts to run and the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB requires 275 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RX 5600 XT and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the Vega Frontier. The Vega Frontier requires 125 Watts more than the RX 5600 XT to run. The difference is significant enough that the Vega Frontier may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 5600 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB is an mid-tier gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5.

GPU
This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 36 Compute Units activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1375 MHz base clock speed and up to 1560 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 20% slower than a Radeon RX 5700 8GB. This puts its predicted performance at roughly 20% faster than a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with 6GB high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 192-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 288 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 6GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 1080p Gaming. In some limited scenarios at 1440p resolution, 6GB video memory might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with available 8+8-pin connector.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB competes with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti which is available for $329.
System Suggestions
The Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2650 x 1480 but is ideally suited for 1920 x 1080. For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 1080p. We recommend a mid-tier CPU and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB is a Prosumer Graphics Card based on the Fourth (4.0) Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Vega 10 XT GPU offers support for HBM-2 Memory, DirectX 12.0 and Open GL 4.5. Vega 10 XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1600MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM2 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 2048-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 16GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
The Vega 10 GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming. The 16GB HBM2 framebuffer should be enough to prevent it bottlenecking performance in any AAA title at 4K.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 16GB is equal to the GeForce GTX 1080 in terms of gaming performance. However, it is primarily designed as a workstation graphics card and is not great value for money as a gaming GPU.
The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is available in two versions - air cooled and the more expensive water-cooled. Specs are otherwise identical. System Suggestions
Radeon RX Vega Nova 16GB HBM2 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
