A lot of trouble for reviewers, AIBs, and consumers
AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT has officially launched and is available with a suggested price of $279, and while it manages to beat Nvidia's RTX 2060, AMD made quite a mess for reviewers, its own AIB partners, as well as consumers, by changing the specifications just a few days after the launch, and it will have a big impact on the market.
Higher clocks, faster memory
It appears that AMD gave its AIB partners a lot of freedom when it comes to RX 5600 XT specifications and some versions have been spotted with a higher game and boost clocks as well as faster 14Gbps memory.
Price drops in Europe down to €299
Although there is still no official price cut for the RTX 2060, the recent introduction of the EVGA RTX 2060 KO, has pushed other Nvidia AIC partners to lower the price down to $299.99, and the same thing is happening in Europe with the price dropping down to €299.
With $300 MSRP
While Nvidia is still officially waiting for the RX 5600 XT to launch, EVGA has launched a pre-emptive strike in the form of Geforce RTX 2060 KO, which will be available with an MSRP of $300, just $20 above the RX 5600 XT.
Coming on January 21st at $279
As expected and rumored earlier, AMD has officially announced the new Radeon RX 5600 XT at its CES 2020 keynote, and this 7nm Navi based card with 2304 Stream Processors and 6GB of GDDR6 memory will be available with $279 SEP on January 21st.
Comes with 6GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory interface
It appears that earlier rumors were spot on as a leaked specifications sheet from one of AMD AIB partners has pretty much confirmed all the specifications for the RX 5600 XT, including 2,304 Stream Processors as well as 6GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory interface.
