XFX Radeon RX 5600 XT Overclocking Review

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.  Overclocking the video card has increased the power as we would have expected.  It is now reaching 281W total system power overclocked.  This is 6% higher than the power with the new BIOS applied, which is the new default performance of the video card. 

Considering we saw that plus higher performance gains with the overclock that small power bump is overall very efficient.  The power draw is still under the GeForce RTX 2060 FE despite the XFX Radeon RX 5600 XT overclocked video card being faster in every game.  That is power efficiency to a tee.

The temperature stayed very cool while we were overclocking with the fans at 100%.  This was to ensure temperature wasn’t an issue and make sure the thermal solution is sufficient for high overclocking.  We found that it is very sufficient for overclocking.  This video card is not being held back by temperature.  The overclocking potential is not being held back in any way.  Our overclock was not limited by temperature or thermal throttling.
