Notes

You'll notice that the Sapphire RX 5600 XT Pulse is listed twice. The first is with the specs that it was shipped at, in its regular OC mode, and these speeds reflect what kind of performance you will see from the cheaper cards.

The second results are with the card flashed to the faster BIOS made available by AMD late last week. Lastly, given how the RTX 2060 has disrupted this launch, we have also benchmarked the now-£275 MSI Ventus XS OC on the latest drivers, to see how it fits into the congested £250-£300 landscape.
