Radeon RX 6500 XT: Sparbrötchen
Your old graphics card is dying out because you’ve been hoping for better prices for five years? Your descendants keep complaining that Fortnite has been jerky since the last update? Rescue is near – says AMD. With the Radeon RX 6500 XT, customers are now waiting for an affordable mainstream graphics card. PCGH examines what the RX 6500 XT can’t do (it doesn’t).
The Radeon RX 6500 XT is designed to serve the widespread Full HD segment, but not the Triple A range. The focus is on titles that have been played millions of times, such as Apex Legends, Fortnite, Overwatch, World of Warcraft, and Farming Simulator. But even the most demanding titles like Far Cry 6, Horizon Zero Dawn, Resident Evil Village, and Halo Infinite & Co. It should work properly with medium to high detail and active upgrade. This seems reasonable, since the entire Navi 24 chip configuration includes just 1,024 FP32 ALUs and a 64-bit memory interface — half the equivalent of a Navi 23 as the Radeon RX 6600 XT. After all, high-end output allows for very high clock rates, the RX 6500 XT typically operates with more than 2.6 GHz – OC variants up to around 2.8 GHz.
