Team Red has finally seen fit to flesh out the mid-range of its Radeon RX 5000 series, launching the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB in stores worldwide.
The RX 5600 XT released a couple of days ago to the public, on 21st Jan and it seemed that the RX 5600 XT Sapphire Pulse 6GB got to the shelves before it had received its bios tweaks, the ones that would improve its clock speeds over the reference RX 5600 XT. The new BIOS update will see a clock speed increase of 55MHz on the game clock and 120MHz on the boost clock, when in performance mode.
A slew of unannounced high-end AMD Radeon graphics cards have just popped up on the official EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) regulatory website. We’ve known for some time that AMD has higher end Navi chips in the pipeline and this may well be our first sighting of them in the wild.
With the Early Access release of Surviving Mars franchise even exists. But development of the Paradox published title is progressing at a steady clip, including the launch of the new Update 3: Expeditions this week.
AMD is getting the big guns ready. An unreleased AMD Radeon RX graphics card has just popped up on the OpenVR benchmark results, comfortably outstripping the performance of a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
AMD has been earning all the headlines for its hardware reveals during the first week of this new decade but now it’s time to get back into the gritty business of software and games. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is the first big PC release of 2020, launching yesterday and rising rapidly to the top of the Steam charts. There has been significant backlash to Iceborne’s PC performance though, which is odd considering it’s just an expansion pack for Monster Hunter World.
Just as expected, AMD revealed the Radeon RX 5600 series to the world during its pre-CES 2020 showcase, along with a pair of new mobile graphics cards.
CES is always a great time for fans of technology, although it can be a little hit or miss in terms of gaming related goodies. For fans of AMD it looks as if it’s certainly going to be veering more toward hit than miss though with the annual AMD CES keynote set to offer us a glimpse at the future of high performance computing.
It’s looking pretty much nailed on that AMD will launch a AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB series.
Right now we’re probably about 10 months away from the launch of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett. The two brands are in lockstep, zeroing in on a holiday 2020 launch for Sony and Microsoft respectively. 
Not to be outdone by AMD’s FEMFX open-source physics-based CPU library, Nvidia has officially unveiled PhysX 5.0. The next-generation unified particle simulation framework will be available “soon” in 2020, offering the developers for all sorts of new physics-based deformation and liquid simulation.
