AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT (Desktop)

The AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT is a fast upper mid-range gaming graphics card for desktops. It uses the Navi 10 chip (RDNA architecture) and is manufactured in the modern 7nm process. It features 2,304 cores (36 CUs - compute units) and fast GDDR6 graphics memory (14 Gbps). The clock speed is specified by AMD at 1,365 - 1,875 MHz (base - max).

The Navi 10 chip uses the new RDNA (Radeon DNA) microarchitecture which is a successor the the GCN instruction set. It features a new processor design, a multi-level cache hierarchy and an improved rendering pipeline with support for GDDR6 memory.

The performance of the RX 5600 XT is slightly better than a Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060. That means it should be best suited for Full HD (1920x1080) and for less demanding games QHD (2650x1440) with maximum settings. 

The TDP of the RX 5600 XT is specified at 185 Watt and the energy efficiency should be similar to the RTX 2060 desktop GPU.
