Radeon RX 6500 XT review  

The release of the Radeon RX 6500 XT is now official and the graphics cards are available. The item was originally listed at 199 dollars / 215 EUR, but at street price fetching close to $250-300. Never in history has entry-level performance been more costly. These cards are fitted with merely 4GB graphics memory, based on a 64-bit wide bus and a sniff of Inifinity Cache (16MB L3). Tied towards a PCIe Gen x4 link (3.0/4.0) this card performs at RX 570/580 performance levels as long as you stick to Full HD. The card are thus positioned as a max 1920×1080 offering and will include a GPU based on NAVI24.  The Navi 24 GPU-based graphics cards are manufactured on a 6nm process and have a maximum of 4 GB of gddr6 memory and yeah; are connected through a very restricted 64-bit memory interface. The 4 GB GDDR6 RAM is buffered by a small 16 MB Infinity Cache though. The series card is projected to perform at the performance marker of the RX 570 XT  (Polaris) and GeForce GTX 1060. The RX 6500 XT features 1024 stream processors. Numerous board partners have stated their own variants and setups of the card. We’ve mapped the major specs below to help you see what to expect.

NAVI24

The Navi GPU 24 is manufactured using TSMC’s 6 nm process, just as rumors had suggested. The Navi 24 chip should be the last of this generation’s chipsets. While doing so, the chip also serves as AMD’s first consumer product to be manufactured on a node smaller than 7 nanometers. Navi 24 has a chip area of approximately 107 square millimeters, which is sufficient room for “up to 16” compute units to be turned on at the same time. This would result in a total of 1024 computational cores or shader processors. Compared to the size of Navi 23, which powers the Radeon RX 6600 cards, Navi 24 is roughly half the size of Navi 23. For their part, the Navi 24 video cards should be viewed as an inexpensive way to get started with AMD’s RDNA2 graphics architecture, however as stated, the asking price is 199 USD, with the market indication 300 USD. A 16 MB Infinity Cache, as well as up to 4 GB of GDDR6 RAM, will be available on a 64-bit memory bus. Thus, the GPU concentrates its efforts on low-cost PCs and games in 1080p resolution.

In this particular review, we’ll look at the Fighter model from Powercolor. However the reference the RX 6500 XT is a two-slot card with a full-height design. This card has a half-height, single-slot design and a single fan, which is similar to the also announced RX 6400. The cards contain a single DisplayPort and HDMI port.
