The GPU is right now with new spec basically an RX 5700 without 2 GB's of GDDR6 and 112 GB/s of memory bandwidth less.

It will be 5-9% slower in games than RX 5700, depending on how memory bandwidth prone the game will be.

Sapphire Pulse is the only one GPU so far with the new spec and it is 99% my next GPU.

So why not just get the 5700 because you're gonna need that extra 2gb.

Because its 70$ more expensive?

Is it worth it? No. Simply - no. RX 5600 XT Sapphire Pulse will be on the same level as Vega 64, in games.

For 279$ MSRP with 10$ margin for AIB GPUs there is simply no other GPU, that gives you equal value.

It killed everything between GTX 1660 and RX 5700 XT in price/performance segment. AMD did tremendous job with this GPU.

Harumpf. My XFX Reference RX 5700 (blower) model, was only $290 + tax from BestBuy. I realize that the blower models being fire-saled may not be available any more, but... RX 5700 for $290, or RX 5600 XT for $280? Seems like a no-brainer in my case.

If they can get the RX 5600 XT down to $260 territory, now we're talking.

You do realize that those same sales will be for RX 5600 XT, right? ;)

Is it equally magical deal when you get RX 5700 for 350$ + tax? :)

"Same sales"? Not really, because a RTX2060 is just the better buy for $299.

Unlike the 5700 with 8GB and more rasterizing performance the 5600XT has no advantage over the 2060 and saving $20 doesnt look so good when you missing so many features.

Your perception on this forum is that if you say something about Nvidia GPU, its 100% sure, that AMD will have better product, so its obvious choice compared to Nvidia ;).

Sapphire RX 5700 Pulse is 12% faster than RTX 2060. RX 5600 XT Sapphire Pulse will be 7-8% slower than that very Sapphire model, while costing 289$, while drawing the same amount of power as RTX 2060. So I don't know what math you use, but its a clear winner. Even EVGA KO variant which was designed by EVGA to cut on the price is actually 309$.

Everything says that RX 5600 XT is better buy, even the fact, that you had to chime in ;).,

It's not like AMD will miss you as a customer.

What are the missing features that your talking about?

Not to take sides here, because I don't give a damn about either AMD or Nvidia, but the fact remains that Rtx Turing has RT/DXR and VRS support. Things that the next gen consoles will have. They are important.

Then you overclock the 2060 and it will beat the 5600 by a good margin.
Add the better features and the 5600 should be $250 at best.

If you're in the US Best Buy had dual fan XFX 5700 for $300 couple of times. Unless 5600XT will go for <$250 on sales it's just better to wait for $300 5700 card.
Where I live there are no sales on any of the GPUs. RX 5600 XT will be a godsend to us.

Eh, I'm not sure how it kills the whole segment when the 1660Super is $230-250. We're basically stuck again for top end 1080p performance costing $280-300. Same as last year with nvidia's turing and the same as 3-4 years ago with Pascal and Polaris. If a $70 jump turns you off, why does a $50 one for the 5600xt not?

But my thought at this point is, if I'm spending $280-300 for a card, I might as well find a deal on the next rung up to hopefully get a card with some legs. I have found it amusing that reviewers and manufacturers as per usual tout 1440p 60hz as doable with these 6gb cards. For now anyway, in a year though?

Generation Upsell continues on. Where the only interesting thing to talk about is price/perf unless someone tries to justify rtx/dlss.

Are you still sure about this, considering that RX 5600 XT is on average faster than RTX 2060 while being cheaper and more eficient? ;)

With new BIOS, RX 5600 XT is(almost...) the best value, overall.

The 5600XT seems like a good option for 1080p but it also depends of the price of the 2060.

If NVIDIA plan was just to drop prices to get in the 5600XT reviews and then never hit those prices again, it might have backfired.

On the other hand the 5700 isn't much faster but 2GB extra of vram makes it a better 1440p card.
