Power and Temp
System power is measured at the wall in Watts and represents the total system load. Our power supply is a Seasonic Prime 1000W Titanium. Temperature is measured via GPUz and room temperature of the testing rig was at 71F while testing.
We added the total system power draw, GPU package temperature and Hot Spot temperature to our power and temp graph. With the new BIOS total system Wattage has increased from 242W to 266W. That is a 10% rise in power, for what comes out to around 4-6% performance increase. However, the power is still a lot less than the GeForce RTX 2060 which needs 8% more power to achieve the same performance as the XFX Radeon RX 5600 XT THICC II Pro with the new BIOS. In the grand scheme of things, even with this new BIOS, the Radeon RX 5600 XT still has great efficiency.
The temperature changed slightly because the fan speed was slightly higher. The Hot Spot was 1 degree hotter, but the overall package temp was lower and much better. This can easily change based on your fan profile curve, you can set a manual faster fan curve to reduce temps if that bothers you. The fan noise was nonexistent to us.
