AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and 5700 Navi playing cards. Dan Baker/Digital Developments
AMD positioned its new Navi RX 5700 playing cards towards Nvidia’s RTX 2060 and 2070, however they turned out to be fairly stable rivals for the brand new RTX 2060 Tremendous and 2070 Tremendous. Now there are rumors of a brand new RDNA-based card within the works that’s slightly decrease down the spectrum. An RX 5600 might be underneath improvement and if and when it launches, it may go face to face with Nvidia’s finest non-RTX graphics card, the.
Leaked specs of a brand new card AMD is engaged on come from CompuBench (through The Inquirer) and present a card that’s based mostly on the Navi 14 GPU — a lower-end various to the Navi 10 used within the RX 5700 XT and 5700. It has 24 compute models (12 lower than the 5700) for a complete of 1,536 stream processors. It has a excessive most increase frequency of 1,900 MHz, however pairs the GPU with simply 4GB of GDDR6.
Contemplating that AMD already has aggressive playing cards for Nvidia’s midrange RTX playing cards, it is sensible that any kind of RX 5600 would compete with Nvidia’s extra modest GTX GPUs. AMD’s current RX 500-series playing cards do an inexpensive job there already, with the RX 580 and 590 providing credible competitors to the GTX 1660 Ti and, whereas the RX 570 is a much more succesful card than the GTX 1650.
The 1660 Ti does very often pip AMD playing cards with a couple of further frames per second, although, so we’d count on the RX 5600 to focus on that Nvidia card at a aggressive worth. The 4GB of GDDR6 is of gentle concern, because the 1660 Ti’s 6GB of GDDR6 may give it a stiff benefit in some video games. Contemplating the RX 590 and 580 have 8GB a bit, too, we may see the RX 5600 fall behind them in some eventualities, relying on sport necessities.
There isn’t any indication presently about when any such graphics card may launch, so we’ll want to carry off for now on making any type of agency judgments about its potential capabilities. However we might be stunned if AMD didn’t flesh out its RDNA-GPU line in 2019, as two fashions for a brand new technology could be very restrictive in comparison with the generations of graphics playing cards it has launched up to now.
