XFX RX 5600 XT THICC III Ultra Review

WEB: XFX MSRP: USD 329.99 | ZAR 5,849 | AUTHOR: Neo


Following the RX 5700 XT review we have yet another entry using the NAVI10 GPU in the XFX RX 5600 XT Thicc III Ultra. A silly name for a card which provides the best performance at this price point par none. These days R6,000 / $349 doesn’t buy much GPU performance, but with the XFX RX 5600XT it seemingly does. This graphics card provides what I deem unmatched performance for FHD and in some rare instances QHD gaming.

AORUS RX 5700 XT 8G Review

WEB: AORUS MSRP: USD 449.99 | ZAR 9,840 | AUTHOR: Neo


The Aorus RX 5700 XT, much like all other NAvi10 graphics cards represents AMD’s most advanced and most power efficient GPU to date, even if it isn’t their fastest sometimes. Afterall, as much as AMD has been putting up a strong fight and some might even say winning in the CPU arena. The firm hasn’t fared as well when it comes to their graphics cards. However, with the RDNA GPUs, AMD has made huge strides in closing the gap between itself and its primary competitor.
