Amd rx 5600 xt delivers big speed boost to compete with nvidias price cut
It seems that AMD is trying to quickly increase the clock speed of the RX 5600 XT before its release this month. According to reports, this is a counterattack against Nvidia’s recent price cut of its RTX 2060, which means that the GPU battle in 2020 has begun.
Nvidia lowered the price of RTX 2060 to US$299 (£299). The UK is 275. This is about a 15% price reduction, and it seems AMD is a little worried. This may even mean that if AMD cannot reach the clock speed they seek in time, they will lower their prices on their own.
However, according to a Videocardz report, the price drop is currently out of AMD's focus. Instead, his answer was to improve the performance of the RX 5600 XT card before launching it.
AMD will reportedly achieve this by providing GPU manufacturers with a new BIOS, which will increase the Total Board Power (TBP) from 150W to 160W. This should mean that clock speeds can be increased and overall performance can be improved.
We even got more detailed information on the increase in report via Sapphire's RX 5600 XT Pulse graphics card. Previously, the card's clock frequency was 1,560MHz and 1,620MHz to increase the clock speed. Now, it appears that the graphics card clock frequency is 1,615MHz and 1,750MHz to increase the clock speed. The
memory clock now also appears as 14 Gbps, which is higher than 12 Gbps. But all other specifications remain unchanged.
Even with these graphics card changes, it is questionable where the 5600 XT enters the market with its competitors. In terms of competitive price or performance, is it enough to stand out? The
5600 XT was originally intended to be the answer to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, but now Nvidia has reduced the price of the RTX 2060, and the AMD card seems a bit less attractive in terms of price. It is now much cheaper than Nvidia's products. The question remains whether the performance is sufficient to make it attractive to consumers.
