In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q.

The RX 5600 XT has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed but 40 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2080. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the RX 5600 XT manages to provide 35.4 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 5600 XT has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5600 XT providing 28.8 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 RTX 2080, 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 RTX 2080.

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 RTX 2080 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 RTX 2080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 has 96 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5600 XT, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 is massively better than the RX 5600 XT.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5600 XT is 2396 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 is 3224. The RTX 2080 having 828 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5600 XT.

The RX 5600 XT transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2080. This means that the RX 5600 XT is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2080.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB requires 150 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RX 5600 XT. The RX 5600 XT requires 70 Watts more than the RTX 2080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 5600 XT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2080.

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 The GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is a High-End laptop Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. As a Max-Q graphics card it is ideally suited for thin gaming laptops. However, this does impact performance. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: TU104-400A-A1 GPU The central unit runs at 735MHz and goes up to 1095MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 80W, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is fairly power hungry for a laptop graphics processor. Performance Performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q falls a long way short of the desktop GeForce RTX 2080. However, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is still a decently fast mobile graphics card which offers performance on par with a desktop GeForce GTX 1070. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560 x 1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
