AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT review – with the last-minute BIOS boost to an efficient RTX-2060 killer?

AMD made an interesting move at the last moment and shifted the Radeon RX 5600 XT into a new performance class virtually overnight via BIOS upgrade. This review will answer whether this goes well and whether one can beat the now targeted opponent in the form of the GeForce RTX 2060 6GB. Spoilers I can at this point however already once that the power consumption will offer a surprise. At least in direct comparison to the GeForce RTX 2060. Crowbar or moneybox? We'll settle that today, I promise.

The Radeon RX 5600 XT with the new BIOS doesn’t quite make it to the GeForce RTX 2060 in Full-HD, but at least almost. If you look at the BIOS, which was still up to date until Thursday, you not only see a serious performance increase, but it also reflects the results from the Reviewers Guide, where they were still proud to beat a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the smaller Super-Susi. The faster clocked memory is definitely worth it here.

The Vega cards can gain astonishingly in the higher resolution, while the two RX 5600 XTs literally go swimming with less memory clock. The card with the new BIOS can now even beat the GeForce RTX 2060 by a narrow margin. Moreover, the graphics memory is already very scarce and the two smaller GeForce GTX win at least in compensation with the somewhat better memory management.
