In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB.

The RTX 2060 has a 197 MHz higher core clock speed but 8 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5500 XT. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the RTX 2060 manages to provide 14.3 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 RTX 2060 has a 197 MHz higher core clock speed and 15 more Render Output Units than the RX 5500 XT. This results in the RTX 2060 providing 26.8 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 less than a year after the RTX 2060, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 2048 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, 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 112.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5500 XT is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 has 1920. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 XT is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 3226. The RTX 2060 having 1537 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2060 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5500 XT.

The RX 5500 XT transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2060. This means that the RX 5500 XT is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2060.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 requires 150 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 RTX 2060. The RTX 2060 requires 30 Watts more than the RX 5500 XT to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RTX 2060 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RX 5500 XT.

The RX 5500 XT comes with a 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 [xx]W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-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 2019 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 GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card and considered a great price to performance graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 does support real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 47 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1365 MHz and goes up to 1680 MHz, in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of slower GDDR5 memory compared to the GDDR6 model, running through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1500MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with an 8-pin power connector. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
