In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB.

The RX 5500 XT has a 542 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560. This results in the RX 5500 XT providing 144.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 5500 XT has a 542 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. This results in the RX 5500 XT providing 36.1 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 5500 XT was released over a year more recently than the RX 560, and so the RX 5500 XT is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 560.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 5500 XT has 6144 MB more video memory than the RX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 5500 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5500 XT has 144.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 560, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5500 XT is massively better than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 XT is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1318. The RX 5500 XT having 371 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5500 XT delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 560.

The RX 5500 XT transistor size technology is 7 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 560. This means that the RX 5500 XT is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB requires 130 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB requires 80 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 5500 XT and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560. The RX 5500 XT requires 50 Watts more than the RX 560 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 5500 XT may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB is an entry-level graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series. It was announced on October 7th, 2019 and released on December 12th, 2019.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1408 shader processing units, 88 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1717 MHz and goes up to 1845 MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX 5500 XT comes with an 8GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 130W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2020 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX 5500 XT 8GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 5500 XT 8GB.
Overview
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\r\nGPU
\r\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs. It has a small overclock to the boost clock speed of the RX 560, running at 1287MHz comparedto 1275MHz at stock clock speeds.

\r\nMemory
\r\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\r\nPower Consumption
\r\nWith a rated board TDP of 80W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\r\nPerformance
\r\This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 900p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

\r\nSystem Suggestions
\r\Radeon RX 560 Gigabyte Gaming OC 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. Higher resolutions will be an issue due to the limited 2GB of VRAM.. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
