In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q.

The RX 5600 XT has a 210 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RX 5600 XT providing 53.6 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 210 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RX 5600 XT providing 29 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 RTX 2060 was released less than a year after the RX 5600 XT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q and the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX 5600 XT has 24 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5600 XT is slightly better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 2275 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5600 XT is 2396. The RX 5600 XT having 121 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5600 XT delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The RX 5600 XT transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2060. This means that the RX 5600 XT is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q requires 65 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Gaming 6GB requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RX 5600 XT, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the RTX 2060. The RX 5600 XT requires 85 Watts more than the RTX 2060 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 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q is the low-power variant of the RTX 2060 Mobile and is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is considered a great price to performance graphics card. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 975 MHz and goes up to 1185 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1375MHz, or 11GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 65W the RTX 2060 Max-Q is averagely resource-intensive and will fairly significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
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.
