We had the opportunity to do a review on Gigabyte's RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G graphics card and I was impressed with the performance that this card gave me. The Radeon cards have improved(by a lot) since the last time I tested one(R7 and R9 variants of Radeon cards). Before we get into how to card performed let us look at what it has to offer specs-wise: the Gigabyte RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G has 3 Display Port 1.4 ports and 1 HDMI 2.0b port. It only needs one 8pin power cable to run all of this power that you would find on this card. For Core Clock it runs at 1560MHz(Game Clock) and 1620MHz on Boost, it also features (as the name suggests) 6GB GDDR6 gaming ram that can do 12000MHz, but if you do the firmware update on the card the memory clock will go up to 14000MHz!

Couple this with the PCI-E 4.0 x16 bus and you have one killer card and a card that is future proof! So with all of these awesome specs what can you expect gaming-wise from the card? When I ran 3DMARK Fire Strike I got a good solid 14904 compared to the MSI GTX 1660 Ti that came in at 13289.

When I loaded Shadow of the Tomb Raider I got a solid average of 77FPS on the highest settings(the only setting not activated is Raytracing as this is an Nvidia feature). Next, I called up Strange Brigade and ran the benchmark using the Vulkan drivers and I got an average of 133 fps on ultra settings and then also ran the DX12 version of the benchmark that came up with an average of 123fps also on ultra settings. The last game that I loaded up was Ashes of the Singularity - Escalation, here again, I tested the Vulkan and DX12 drivers using the "Crazy" Preset in the benchmark. On the Vulkan test, I got an average of 57.19fps and on the DX12 test an average of 55.07fps.

I am supprised by how good the performance is on my system and I can see how the Gigabyte RX 5600 XT can be a good consideration for a GPU update in your system build. I also loved the overall design of the board and the fact that there is only a splash of RGB on the card(and not completely decorated with it). The Radeon cards have improved since I last had a look at one(and that was back in the R9 380 days). I also loved the fact that the Gigabyte RX 5600 XT gave the MSI GTX 1660 Ti card a real run for it's money.

Overall I was pleased with the results I got out of the Gigabyte RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G, I could play my games at ultra(even tried playing Crysis remasted) and the pricing on it also makes it a worthwhile contender when looking to upgrade your GPU. It will give any 1660Ti card a good run of it's money. The 5600 XT will also benifit gamers that are upgrading to newer PCI-E 4.0 motherboards. Also with the new Range of cards that will soon be annouced you can look at some savings coming in the future to this card. I would give the Gigabyte RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G a 9 out of 10 and would recomend it to any gamer that wants good performance for the price that they are paying.
