A Trip down memory lane.

upon launch i didnt like the 5600xt, it came out messed up, and it was for us UKHOTDEAL users, the offer price of the ebuyer/ccl ebay voucher codes 5700.

for prebuilt buyers they have been great though, the whole packages ive put on here have been more value though out, then getting a 5700, palicomp have some nice 5600xt builds on here atm, really worth looking at..

for us self builds, the 5700 in this market is +£££ this puts this very much in contention for new self builds looking at a £260ish card price.

unless you really want rtx (rtx 2060, which wouldn't do rtx great anyway), no
Can't speak for this card but my power colour Rx 580 is noisy as hell!!!
price of 2060 is £300 so for £32 extra then no for the gamer,

(someone will be thinking ^ handon, u said in ur prebuilt get the 2060 dual fan over a 5600xt inside that prebuld = thats cos they was charging +10 more only).... but £32.... for this varient between this n that giga dual fan. keep to this for self builders.

And conversely their Vega 56 Dragon (which I have) is, quite rightly IMO, generally regarded as one of the very best Vega 56 cards. So, it is definitely worth checking out specific card models rather than just assuming the 'big' brands are going to be better quality.

well powercolor are company what do listen to feedback, and the rx580 has been out for sometime, so improvments have come on.

2ndly the red dev of 5700xt is one of the most finest gpu there is, and the red drag is a great cheaper alt to that on that line too and at better cost, this 5600xt is also newer too then all.

Unless you don't want to deal with the driver issues facing the 5xxx cards, which I could see being worth any amount of money.

There have certainly been deals on the 2060 the bring it close/under this price, personally, I wouldn't buy either of the cards till the 3xxx from NVIDIA and the AMD response happens (very soon, before September). But if you need a card right now, I'd still skip AMD right now, their drivers are a mess, again.
I do feel, DLSS should be taken into consideration also, especially with newer releases. This could potentially give even an RTX 2060 massive gains against amd. Very good deal though. Voted Hot!

But barely anything supports it. DLSS 2.0 is seriously impressive but there's hardly any games. Pity it can't run at a driver level and run on any game. And I'm sure more and more games will support it. But so far it's practically nothing. Still it is pushing me to the big green monster when card prices settle a bit.

Agree. Supply issues have driven up the cost of components all over and I guess because people are bored they will just keep paying over the odds. I’m just making do for now, not in a rush.

Give it a few months, a massive recession is currently underway. Folk who still have a job will have ample choice at bargain prices.
There were driver issues but they have mostly been ironed out. Bought the 5700 Powercolor OC model for €314 couple months ago and its been a great card with no issues so far. Max temp 80, usually stays around 72.

I'm not in a rush anyway but that's why I wouldn't be buying at what I consider over-inflated prices now. Also GPU pricing could be affected by the memory prices increasing across the board.

I think you'll find it's not just the GPU market... You see there's this worldwide issue at the moment. You might've seen something on the news about it. It's sort of affecting more than just the GPU market right now.

Just looking for that "Time machine" comment for you btw.
I’ve got the Sapphire version of this, hard locks on pc every few days, not just me it seems. Shame as I always liked AMD but next card is going to be Nv now as its too much hassle waiting for fixes.
aknife24/05/2020 00:16

today, probably not but 5700XT's were at £300-320 a couple of months ago, no use if you need a card today but world events are clearly pushing the GPU prices up.

If you can wait its probably worth waiting if you think the global situation will improve and you dont need to upgrade today.
The Radeon 5600 came out back in 2010
Cant AMD come up with new names to avoid confusion on used sales like eBay?
I have this exact card. No crashes yet and its near silent in use.
The drivers are much better now. Also XFX card a little cheaper here if you prefer.
amazon.co.uk/XFX…Z8Z
Got this exact card in January on launch and paid this for it also.
I'm very happy with the card performance wise and good value for money in that respect - it's good to game on.
Really awful drivers, I mean terrible - it'll randomly blackscreen / crash easily once or twice a day. There have been improvements since launch, but considering this is a nearly £300 piece of kit it really is a bit of a joke.
I wouldn't buy it again - me in January should have got a 2060 SUPER but right now? personally I'd hold out a little bti longer for Nvidia's new cards to give me some more choice / deals.

We can get a rough idea of how it will compare though. If we ignore ray tracing. Which is fair, seems the RX 5600 XT doesn't do anyways.

In the game control with the highest quality DLSS @ 1080p, which is pretty close to native visually an rtx 2060 averages over 100fps. Compared to a RX 5600 XT, which is in the 70s mostly.

As it stands though, in raw performance over a wide variety of games, the rx 5600 XT beats the 2060.

I personally just ordered an RTX 2060 though. The performance is fairly close to an RX 5600 XT to the point of me, not caring about the difference and hopefully DLSS will take off, which means it will beat the 5600 XT and then you have ray tracing, which is a bonus feature, generally speaking. Although DLSS does make ray tracing useable. For the price difference and looking into the future an RTX 2060 seems the better buy if you need a GPU right now. You then also have better drivers for nvidia.

Saying that, AMD drivers do get better over time and performance normally improves compared to nvidia. You can see that in the past with the RX 580 compared to a Gtx 1060. So assuming DLSS doesn't take off and you don't care for ray tracing. The RX 5600 XT is better and its cheaper right now.

Yes. Using letters. That was the HD5600. This is the RX 5600 XT. If you see one simply named 5600 on ebay for £20 then it's safe to assume it's not this. Only a moron would make that mistake.

Anything you recommend specifically ? It's the red dragon one. It just gets insanely loud at 60c. Modification to wattman can help with it but only a temp fix really.
Had this card, red devil version, absolute nightmare with random crashing owing to the drivers.
From first hand experience I can say that 5600xt is not worth the hassle. Too many driver issues, black screens, crashes etc. I have returned my Sapphire Pulse 5600xt which is meant to the best of the lot and which I got for £269 before prices went crazy. In my opinion 5600xt is massively overclocked and unable to handle the power draw. You may get some extra FPS to compete with 2060 but stability is out of the window. The card runs fine in the original "silent bios" which tells its own story. Spend the extra 30-40 and get the 2060.

Returned the GPU this morning, and now in market for a 1660 super (great value) or RTX 2060 if I can find one for around 300ish. The driver problems are not sorted out and if you want to go by "youtube reviewers" then you are welcome to burn your fingers like me. These so called experts havent a clue and they peddle unproven tech for sake of views and sponsorships.

I mean, in this thread, how many different people need to chime in before you believe them? 5 accounts in this very small thread about horrible first hand driver experiences. There's smoke. There's fire. Why bother? They are neck and neck with the 2060 regular for roughly the same price, based on who's on sale and who isn't. Why would ANYONE touch this bug riddled card?

If you trust a company that gives thousands of users issues with a £280 product for months after release i dont know what to tell you. Sure, the XTs are magically fixed, after the 5700 has been a nightmare for 8months.
SCAN is also offering it at the same price, if you have their free shipping perk.
