[OCN LABS] The Perfect 1080P GPU? Ft. Gigabyte RX 5600XT Gaming OC




Hey hey OCNers, I am bluedevil. Today we are going to look at Gigabyte's RX 5600XT Gaming OC graphics card. As some of you may know, the RX 5600XT series was announced at CES 2020, which is not aimed for the ultra high end market, but more for the $300 segment of gamers that don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a GPU or any of the rest of the components of a build. So today we are going to find out how the Gigabyte RX 5600XT Gaming OC stacks up against a few other GPUs I have here, right after this.

Featuring AMD’s Navi 10 GPU, the RX 5600XT series is based on a 7 nanometer process, meaning it shouldn’t be too difficult to cool. Armed with 2304 unified shaders and a Pixel Fillrate of about 112 gigapixels allows the Navi 10 GPU to comfortably game at 1080P with it’s 6 gb’s of GDDR6. Now Gigabyte’s RX 5600XT Gaming OC has two revisions, well at least one with a BIOS update to increase core clocks from 1620mhz to 1750mhz. The BIOS update also manages to bump up the memory clocks from 12Gps to 14Gps, everything else essentially remains the same. Gigabyte had sent me REV 1, but this was just before we got hit with the human malware pandemic, so I will be doing a VBIOS update today as well. So this gives me the opportunity to see what exactly the performance difference was made to this particular RX 5600XT.

Featuring Gigabyte’s Windforce cooling, which sports three 80mm fans. The center fan actually spins in the opposite direction as the outside two fans. Having a fan spinning the opposite direction seems like it would introduce more air turbulence, but in all actuality, it aids in smoother airflow with better heat dissipation. Coupled with semi-passive fans, 5 direct touch heat pipes and ample amount of aluminum heatstacks, this Windforce design is no joke. Gigabyte also brings its Ultra Durable copper PCB design to the table as well as having solid capacitors, metal chokes, tier one memory, and lower RDS mosfets for longer life and better overclocking. Powering the Gigabyte RX 5600XT Gaming OC is a single 8 Pin PCIe connector alongside the PCIe Gen 4 connection. Just something to note here, while PCIe 4.0 is here, offering double the throughput of PCIe Gen 3, all modern GPUs haven’t even completely saturated PCIe Gen 3. Plus the only motherboards that have support for PCIe Gen 4 are AMD’s new X570 and B550 chipsets. So don’t let the PCIe Gen 4 support be the only reason to consider a newer GPU.

Okay looking at this 5600XT, the beastly Windforce 3X cooler takes up two slots as well as spanning the length of the card. A single element of RGB, the Gigabyte logo, keeps RGB subtle. On the back is a full metal backplate for added protection. Connection wise, three displayport 1.4 ports as well as an HDMI 2.0 port are present.

Priced at around $300 USD, the natural competitor of the RX 5600XT is the RTX 2060 from Nvidia. Unfortunately I only have a couple of RTX 2060 Supers to test alongside the RX 5600XT as well an RTX 2070 Super for a high end GPU. Testing will be done at 1080P as well as 1440P. So let’s get to those benchmarks and then we can discuss the results.

Test Bench PC
Asus Z370 Maximus X Code
Intel Core i7-8700K @ 5Ghz
Team Group Vulcan 500GB 2.5" SSD
HyperX Fury RGB 16GB DDR4-3733
Gigabyte RX 5600XT Gaming OC
EVGA RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra
Nvidia RTX 2060 Super FE
Nvidia RTX 2070 Super FE
EVGA P2 750w
Cooler Master TD500 Mesh White
EKWB AIO 360 DRGB



Benchmarks - Before and After VBIOS update

FarCry 5




CSGO




COD:WarZone




Temps



So running through those benchmarks and wow, it really seems when AMD GPUs are optimized, they hit really well. For example, in COD WarZone, at both 1080P and 1440P, the RX 5600XT bests the RTX 2070 Super. While other games, which the RX 5600XT performs decently well in, especially against both RTX2060 Supers as well as the RTX 2070 Super. At 1080P, AMD’s RX 5600XT is a beast, of which Gigabyte makes even better with their Windforce 3X cooling solution. This GPU never got above 70C, even with the higher power draw VBIOS.

So what can I say about Gigabyte’s RX 5600XT Gaming OC graphics card? Well for someone looking for a GPU to run a high refresh rate, 1080P monitor, which Gigabyte also has, seems to be the perfect pairing.

Alright guys, if you want to check out the Gigabyte RX 5600XT Gaming OC, links will be in the description below. Toss a like and a sub, it will be much appreciated.

I didn't realize that AMD did so well in the new COD, pretty sure when I went 2060 to 5700 to 2070 it was the other way around. Thought the 2060 had the 5700 at that point. Maybe I was mistaken.

But for someone who just plays COD and BF, the 5600xt looks like a good buy. Although I didn't have the greatest experience with the 5700.

AMD tends to get better with newer drivers, most likely the case.
