Following the RX 5700 and RX 5500 series, AMD will release the RX 5600 Series, the first model of the RX 5600 XT, in mid-January. Based on previous exposure, the RX 5600 XT is expected to use the THIN version of the RX 5700 Navi 10 core, with computing units switched from 40 to 30, stream processors from 2304 to 1920, while the memory width was reduced to 192-bit, with 6GB GDDR6 memory, and 8GB version sepsis This.
Today, Asrock quietly launched an “RX 5600 XT Challenger D 6G OC” with no product map, but the specifications are already on the line, and it’s a surprise.
Asrock’s specifications show that the RX 5600 XT has 2304 stream processors (40 cells), which is exactly the same as the RX 5700!
The memory width is 192-bit, with 6GB GDDR6, the equivalent frequency of 12GHz, while the core frequency reference 1235MHz, game acceleration 1460MHz, maximum acceleration 1620MHz.
The core size is exactly the same as the RX 5700, and the frequency and memory specifications are reduced – it’s not clear what medicine selling in AMD gourds, so where does the RX 5700 go? The huge gap down and the RX 5500 XT directly is then filled by the RX 5600?
As for 8GB memory, although the RX 5500 XT has this version, the RX 5600 XT should not be there, otherwise it does not match the 192-bit bit width, using asynchronous memory and affecting performance.
In addition, Asrock’s card interface is an HDMI, three DisplayPort, and the use of a single 8-pin auxiliary power supply, RX 5700 is a universal 8 plus 6 pins and even 8 plus 8 pins, the system power recommended 550W can be satisfied, obviously the new card will be a lot lower power consumption than RX 5700, It is expected to be around 150W.
