The Red Dragon RX 5600 XT Benchmarked with 50 games vs. the RTX 2060 Founders Edition & vs. the ASUS X3 RX 5600 XT EVO OC
BTR received and benchmarked a Red Dragon RX 5600 XT 6GB ($289.99 MSRP) review sample from PowerColor versus the ASUS RX 5600 XT EVO OC 6GB ($309.99), and versus the RTX 2060 6GB Founders Edition ($299.99). Although these cards are designed for Ultra 1080P, 50 game benchmarks were also run at 2560×1440 to stress them beyond their limits.
We posted our Tuff Gaming X3 ASUS RX 5600 XT EVOC OC 6GB review in January where it solidly beat the GTX 1660 Ti and the Super, and nothing has changed since then. The new vBIOS updated the memory from 12Gbps to 14Gbps, and every Red Dragon RX 5600 XT for sale already comes with the faster 14GBps memory. Although its MSRP is $289, Amazon and Newegg are each selling the Red Dragon RX 5600 XT for $299. Newegg has the better deal since they include a game bundle with RE3, Monster Hunter World, and 3-month XBox PC game pass. The GeForce competitor to the RX 5600 XTs ($279-$309) are the entry level RTX 2060 ($299) video cards.
The PowerColor Red Dragon RX 5600 XT 8GB
Although there is no AMD reference design, the Red Dragon RX 5600 XT 6GB shares the same specifications including the maximum Boost clock, but its game/Boost clock is set higher at 1560MHz/1620MHz which is also 10MHz faster than the ASUS RX 5600 XT EVO OC.
The Red Dragon specs look great and it should be a good match up versus the RTX 2060 Founders Edition, and versus the ASUS RX 5600 XT EVO OC, a bigger and a more expensive card.
