In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon RX 590 8GB.

The RX 590 has a 284 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 5600 XT. This results in the RX 590 providing 40.9 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 RX 590 has a 284 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5600 XT, but the RX 5600 XT has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 590. As a result, the RX 5600 XT exhibits a 28.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 590. 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 RX 590, 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 RX 590.

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 RX 590 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX 5600 XT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 590 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5600 XT has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 590, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5600 XT is noticeably better than the RX 590.

Both the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB and the Radeon RX 590 8GB have 2304 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the RX 590 is 3560 and by the RX 5600 XT is 3560. Knowing that the shader performance of the RX 590 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The RX 5600 XT transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 590. This means that the RX 5600 XT is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 590.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB requires 150 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 590 8GB requires 175 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RX 5600 XT and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 590. The RX 590 requires 25 Watts more than the RX 5600 XT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 590 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than 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.
