It looks like the upcoming Radeon RX 5600 XT is going to slot in nicely between the RX 5500 family and the higher-end RX 5700 family. It has all but been confirmed that the card will feature 6GB of GDDR6 memory, and rumors point to those chips being 12 Gbps (1500 MHz clock). New benchmarks found of this card put its performance some 30% ahead of the RX 5500 XT which would make its performance on-par with AMD’s RX Vega 56 and very close to the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti.
It is being speculated that AMD could be using the same Navi 10 dies that they used in their RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 and disabling one of four Asynchronous Compute Engines (ACEs). By disabling the a single ACE the Navi 10 hardware would go from 0 RDNA Units, 2,560 Stream Processors (SPs), 160 texture mapping units (TMUs) and 64 render output units (ROPs) to 30 RDNA CUs, 1,920 SPs, 120 TMUs, 48 ROPs. AMD could price the RX 5600 XT in the $249 range.
