AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT Specifications Leaked: NVIDIA RTX 2060 Killer?

AMD is looking to launch the second budge Navi card in the form of the Radeon RX 5600 XT, with an expected release sometime next month. Courtesy of well-known leaker, TUM_APISAK, we now know the complete specifications of the Radeon RX 5600 XT and looks like it’s going to be a GTX 1660 Ti after all.

Looking at the shader count, it’s clear that the RX 5600 XT will be a notch above the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and coming up on the RTX 2060 territory. The former has a higher core count than both and going by previous RDNA based cards, the Navi cores are more or less on par with NVIDIA’s Turing parts.

Memory Speed12 Gbps12 Gbps12 GBps

Considering that the GTX 1660 Ti is priced just below the $250 mark and the RTX 2060 costs north of $330, it’d be fair to think that the RX 5600 XT will retail for around $300. As for real-world gaming performance, it should offer performance more or less on par with the RTX 2060 (if not better).

Of course, NVIDIA’s lowest-end RTX card still features hardware-level ray-tracing and DLSS support, but that’s hardly relevant at this point. Moreover, the 2060 barely manages to run the RTX enabled games even with DLSS.

If AMD prices the 5600 XT well, then it’ll be just the break Radeon team has been looking to get in the graphics card market. This is where most sales occur and should AMD a healthy boost if they play it right.
