How well can the Radeon RX 5600M run games
27 Jul 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 5600M is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2021. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon RX 5600M runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 656 games in todays list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 5600M performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Dying Light 2 and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 88 FPS, Medium: 70 FPS, High: 47 FPS and Ultra: 34 FPS. We proceeded to look at Battlefield 2042 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a playable 40 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Dying Light 2 will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 67 FPS, Medium: 53 FPS, High: 36 FPS and Ultra: 26 FPS. Next we have Battlefield 2042 running on Radeon RX 5600M which is predicted to get L: 56FPS, M: 43FPS, H: 38FPS, U: 31FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Forza Horizon 5 is predicted to get L: 131FPS, M: 103FPS, H: 69FPS, U: 50FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon RX 5600M is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5600M graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5600M in your PC? Upgrade time for this GPU is currently placed at 2 years

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5600M? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 5600M then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q as this is better than 778 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 28% better performance as well.
