The ASUS Radeon RX 5600 XT STRIX TOP uses the same cooler and PCB design as the RX 5700 XT STRIX OC, which makes this a massively overbuilt design. Thanks to a 10-phase GPU VRM paired with low voltages, the card is actually more power efficient than NVIDIA's Turing lineup.

is that price correct? Why would anyone get this when they could get a RX 5700 for $5 less?

Looks like about the same average performance as the 2060 and more efficient but costs $35 more.

For me gaming around 20 hours a week it would add about 23 cents a month to my power bill to run the 2060 or if I look at the cards lifespan of perhaps 4 years then $11 more on my power bill to run the 2060 for 4 years gaming.

More competition is always better for the consumers. I wanna see the power of the 2060 and the 5600 cut by half so that more laptops can have them instead of GTX 1660 .

Laptops either come with a 1,024-core GTX 1650 or the GTX 1660 Ti (both Max-Qs) for the ~$1,200 and under range.

I hope the upcoming 5600M/5700M are similar to this new RX 5600 XT at a similar price.

This STRIX is overpriced badly though. If anything, this should be $290 or such.

Looks like ASUS finally fixed the mounting pressure issues , Strix and Gaming X are by far the best coolers out there .

That VRM is obviously designed for a 5700XT or equivalent, and cheaper to re-use instead of designing it new for just the 5600XT.

Finally, that we are in a era where arguments, discussions and all that about VRM's could be put finally to rest. They are just build in a way that even 3 chips on one board could not still fully utilitize it's designed capacity.

ASUS RX 5600 XT: 2304 cores, 1670 MHz clock, 6 GB memory
RX 5700 XT: +11% cores, clock less -4% and 8 GB GDDR6
But average gaming consumption of ASUS 5600 XT ~ 142W vs 219 Watt for 5700 XT (+54%).

It's true?
+256 cores and +2GB GDDR6 adds +54% energy consumption :eek:

The cards run at vastly different voltages. To stabilize the higher target clocks of 5700 XT (2048 MHz), the voltage had to be increased (1.156 V)
Charts on the page before conclusion have that info

Did I see this right? A $45 premium over the Sapphire 5600XT Pulse for pretty much nothing except 6db less noise? I mean, a 6db reduction in noise is nothing to sneeze at, but this thing is way over-priced.

Then again, Wattman seems to be limited, but would something like Afterburner be able to push the cards further? In that case there would likely be more benefit, but that's still a pretty hefty premium.

As a known ray-tracing disbeliever - or rather 'everything-can-ray-trace', I am interested in results in Battlefield V, since it supports DX12 and ray-tracing - limited as it will be in the future. At several occasions, I used the argument that full real-time ray-tracing is about the worst possible case for gaming - the number of light sources, the number and type of reflexive surfaces and suchforth changes on-frame basis, and... I'll leave to readers imagination how well it will function... Stuff like one help raytraced from one omni light is typical example (that Star Wars screenshot that circles around) is about what the gamers can expect.

Could we please, get the alternate results for BFV with ray-tracing? Since 5600XT bets 2060 with significant margins, perhaps we can see how the 'wonders' of hardware-acceleration reduce this gap in 5600XT unfavourable scenario?

Jesus christ, this budget card matches my GTX 1080 and its called a 1080p card?

Why don't you look at temp?
Sapphire :
GPU = 73'c , Hotspot = 82'c , MEM = 76'c , VRM = 68'c
Asus :
GPU = 58'c , Hotspot = 63'c , MEM = 70'c , VRM = 48'c

Where do You see 6dB difference? Both cards are at 28dB in the charts.

Right, but it provided no significant improvement in the OC, but like I said, with Wattman.

Oh wow, I must have looked at a temperature instead of the noise on one. My bad...

Asus doing what they always do - overbuilding a mid-range product and putting a huge price premium on it. As always, this is too much of a premium and at 20% more expensive puts it in the price bracket of far more powerful silicon. No amount of lipstick will change the fact that this isn't a 5700-series card.

Buy the Sapphire Pulse, as always. Or, if you want more performance than that for the same money as this Asus, buy a 5700-Sapphire Pulse instead! :laugh:

Avoid like the plague, if this is anything like the RX 5700 version I had which lasted a week as it killed itself. Check out the hardware unboxed video on the 5700 version to see the fault with this cooler.
