How well can the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB run games
14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2020. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 928 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card gets a good frame rate from Baldurs Gate 3 with 67 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Microsoft Flight Simulator which returns a good 63 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Phasmophobia which we saw getting a strong 84 FPS.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB ran Baldurs Gate 3 to a reasonable performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 134 FPS, Medium: 105 FPS, High: 71 FPS and Ultra: 51 FPS. Another game tested was Microsoft Flight Simulator, L: 127FPS, M: 100FPS, H: 67FPS, U: 48FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Phasmophobia, which returned L: 168FPS, M: 132FPS, H: 89FPS, U: 64FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB running at 1440p is probably one of the better high resolution gaming options on the graphics card market. You can consider pushing most games up to 4K with this gpu and Ultra 1440p is going to be a regular occurrence for gaming today.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB, which is 25% more powerful and can run 991 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5800 XT which is 22% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 990 games from the most demanding games today.

Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 6GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT MSI Mech 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-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 Mech 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.
