10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the Radeon RX 5600 6GB graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games.

All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

How well will the Radeon RX 5600 6GB run 2022 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. 805 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 5600 6GB can run Battlefield 2042 at 1080p and saw it return playable frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 95 FPS, Medium: 75 FPS, High: 50 FPS and Ultra: 36 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Back 4 Blood returns a good 60 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon RX 5600 6GB at 1440p with Battlefield 2042, which got a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 72 FPS, Medium: 57 FPS, High: 38 FPS and Ultra: 27 FPS. We then checked out Back 4 Blood which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 120FPS, M: 94FPS, H: 64FPS, U: 45FPS. And another popular game was Dying Light 2 that returned L: 97FPS, M: 76FPS, H: 51FPS, U: 37FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 5600 6GB is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5600 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5600 6GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5600 6GB? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the Radeon RX 5600 6GB.

Radeon RX 5600 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

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

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

This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 36 Compute Units activated, offering 2304 Shader Processing Units, 128 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 12% slower than a Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB. This puts its predicted performance at roughly the same as a GeForce GTX 1660 Super.

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 one available 8+6-pin connector.

AMD Radeon RX 5600 6GB competes with GeForce GTX 1660 Super which is available for $329.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5600 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.
