    The issue with AMD offering at comparable prices is the fact their drivers suck ass. Why would buy AMD when your games constantly crash

    i guess my main concern is i think amd likes prices high like this
    when the 400 series came out the 480 was $240 MSRP
    since it took them so long to come out with another mid range offering nvidia completely raised the prices of the mid range
    and now amd can sell their "new generation" of mid range 480 series cards at nearly 2x the price
    the 1070ti came out years ago and the 5700 barely beats it, sometimes doesnt, but costs almost $100 more

    The price difference between the 5600XT and the 5700 is as low as 20€ over here in germany. So choosing the 5600XT over the 5700 is hard, especially when you're comfortable flashing your 5700 with the XT BIOS.

    • Titan Mechanism
      Titan Mechanism Month ago

      I really don't understand why AMD just took the 5700 and left 2 VRAM chips off. The 5600XT should been closer to the 5500XT which should've been cheaper.

    I've been seeing a lot of people complaining about Nvidia and / or AMD after this whole RTX 2060 price drop / 2060 KO release and AMD's 5600 XT Bios update. All I could think was thank you to both for making each other match price / performance. I like both companies but think AMD's cards and BIOS's left a lot to be desired and NVidia was overcharging because...well they could. To see them fight a little over our dollar(s) doesn't bother me a bit. When two guys who are trying to sell you something start fighting.....don't interrupt.

    Good choice of title. No idea if someone wants to play on these lvls why not bought a vega 56/ 1660 long time and enjoying it for years...
    Worth to mention 350 used to be the price of highend GPUs.... good old times..
    Imho wasting any dollar before NVidia comes out with 7nm and Big Navi is on the market is stupid.

    I want to see 5600M and 5700M where Navi really shines and power consumption improvements matter in laptops. Yet so much after CES they are still nowhere, just like no 4800H zen 2 laptops either... All this form a company who could dominate all gaming/performance laptop market using their console unified APU tech. Noone else have that strong CPU+GPU as they do.

    What is this card's value proposition against the GTX 1660 Super? I know, it's not the same price bracket but the GTX 1660 Super already made the 1660 Ti (the card against which the 5600 XT was originally meant to compete) obsolete from a value perspective. So how do they stack up against one another?

  • Bobby Frags
    Bobby Frags 2 months ago

    Greg, I don't see many even commenting on how late AMD is to this generation. The RTX 2060 is just over a year old. While I'm glad AMD is adding competition and is on par with a 2060, but it took AMD a year to do so. And, Ampere is out in a few months. AMD is 3/4 of a generation behind. Nvidia is lowering the cost of the 2060, which is easy to do given its been on the market for a full year.
    If AMD truly wants to compete with Nvidia, they need to be more timely to the party. AMD releasing cards just before Ampere seems short sighted.

  • SonnieSlim1

    Competition looks like last minute vbios updates that screw their partners and shitty driver updates that screw their customers?

    • SonnieSlim1
      SonnieSlim1 2 months ago

      @Greg Salazar it has since they have to rush to update their products and many of the first batch weren't updated so users will have to update them themselves and not everyone will even know about this and will get a card 10% slower. Hell some partners are choosing to not even update the vbios at all. So you got all these different 5600xts on tbe market and consumers won't know until it's in their hands if it's got the update or not
      Hell gamers Nexus even mentioned this and they sent cards home with their staff and reported tons of weird issues and bugs with the card. It's pretty widely known amd is having driver issues with their cards.

    • Greg Salazar
      Greg Salazar  2 months ago

      What are you talking about? The vBIOS updates haven't screwed over their partners. And the driver's have been fine on my end. Not sure what you're complaining about. Would you rather have this extra performance or not? Lol.

    Don't forget Nvidia actually reduced the price of 2060 for $300 for a Day just before the ryzen 5700 launch but Amd hiked the price & nvidia kept the price of 2060 as it was .I actually bought 2060 for $300 brand new .but after few days all partners raised the price again as amd 5700 was $400

    Sapphire has some great cards, though they might be on the thick side and nearly block a third PCI-e slot, but they have a great build quality. My RX580 Ntiro+ is just a great card overall, completely silent in general use and reasonably quiet under full load.

    • Eulogy

      They do basically block that third slot because the fan needs room to breath.

    The funny thing is, i dont know why AMD dont just release the 5600 with the new bios out of the gate, its like the only thing NVIDIA ever do to amd release, price cuts. They should have seen it coming from a mile away.
    If they announce with the new bios there wont be 1st batch of gpu coming with outdated bios out of the gate like this.. Messy release AMD.

      If money is not a problem, then 2080 Ti or 2080. AMD Vega 64 may be better choice on AMD side. You can also use rx5600 to rx5700xt cards. You need more VRAM to work with 4K and 8K videos. 8GB VRAM will be sufficient for 4K work most probably. Nvidia is the better choice in Linux. You need Studio version to utilize multiple GPU. AMD ryzen 7 3700x with 5600xt or rtx2060 (both 8GB VRAM) and 32GB RAM will make decent 4K editing machine. For 1080p AMD ryzen 5 3600 with 1660 Super and 16GB RAM will more than enough.

    Nah this was the VBios that they intended AIB's to ship with their more expensive variants. AMD got shafted basically. At least we know now why Nvidia kept up with the 2060 so they could have a ready source to combat this card. Expect most 2060's to fall in price to cover off against the more expensive SKUs, also think that there will be some bargains on 1660Ti's as it becomes EOL.

    Hi Greg, just watched this vid. Very well done. One thing I noticed is that you have a Dark Rock Pro4 in your pc. I have the same cooler. I also have 4x8 Trident Z's. It kind of sucked that with the outside fan on the Pro 4 that you really could only see 1 memory stick. So for the heck of it I took the outside fan off the Pro 4. To my surprise the cpu temp only went up 1c at gaming load. Did not try any other benches. And the fan speeds stayed the same. I am leaving that fan off as I like the look of the system much better with the ram showing. I believe there are a couple vids on Utube showing the diff in 1 fan vs 2. Have a great day. Subbed.

      Probably fine at stock 5700XT settings, too. Main advantage of buying the branded card seems to be more leeway for undervolting or overclocking.

  • taymr

    For the encoder alone and easy software/drivers. The 2060 wins. If you don’t care about that and want a card that will last, 5600 xt hands down.

      @Yizus Crist im from an esport perspective. I really couldnt care about ray tracing or whatever. I turn off adaptive sync, all other nonsense to reduce input lag and get high fps.

    • Yizus Crist
      Yizus Crist 2 months ago

      The next GPU generation (influenced by new consoles) seems like is going to include Ray tracing.
      I would wait a for next generation, the RTX 2060 doesn't have a lot of power to run Ray tracing decently and the 5600 xt doesn't have a technology to work with Ray tracing.
