    It would be dissapointing for 5600xt to have 6gb vram while 5500xt having 8gb. Its probably wrong.

    That and one detail more.
    Hope that 5600 has 256 bus width, or at least 196, 128 bus is a limiting factor.

    Unless it is the only solution for a proper difference below 5700 in price. Perhaps it is the direct competitor in everything with Nvidia 1660ti/2060/s series, both in muscle and... weight :confused: Interesting rumor though, I cannot recall amd ever used 6gb ram or 192bit bus.:eek:

    Who knows. Those card will be in the price bracket where, aside from the GPU chip itself, if you give something, you need to take something else away. However, AMD has quite a long history with 8GB, so it's hard to say. But then again, the recent years haven't been good for AMD's Radeon group, so continuing like they always have isn't necessarily the right answer.

    Even as a marketing decision they can't go wrong either. Gtx/rtx low end gpus are selling like hotcakes despite being 6gb so many years. So, you cannot consider that truly as a prohibiting factor.

    If I were looking to buy one of these cards I would wait for the 5600 XT for the 192-bit memory, if true.

    That or at least a 5800XT

    Pretty much. Fingers crossed for it, even thou I won't move from my 5700xt to 5800xt. Nevertheless, 5900xt seems interesting (as it will come with ray tacing capability).

    Well you are talking about next year's gpus. Not kinda fair comparison nor equal anticipation. It's still 2019 in here. :p

    Your saying that cause of our wish to get a stronger GPU?
    2019 Nvidia released their 2080 Super version, we defintly need something from AMD that holds up at 4K while beating team green at the price.

    After so many years I realized that my main PC is most of the time either idling or doing some CPU intensive tasks, gaming is less frequent.
    So, If I buy a graphics cards, I have to undercoat it heavily or by design has a low power consumption in idle.
    For me this card may seem a very interesting pick.

    It would be nice, but since that level of performance is in the extreme minority they are going to continue their sound business plan of prioritizing the most purchased of the line-up first. Not to mention they are refining it more and getting better yields first, it might be best for them to jump ahead to the next arch to go against nvidias 7nm monsters next year for the high end.

    Playing games at 1080p doesn't need 8gb of ram, that's why a 1650 Super 4gb, and 1660 Super 6gb outperform their 8gb counterparts. There's no point in having large amounts of memory on cards that aren't even capable of utilizing all of it.

    after years i realised that overclocking on the hardware i buy ((normally mid range)) it normally gives me no noticeable difference ... so nowadays i do little tweaking ...on that though i might as well fire up benchmarks and start clicking down the voltage and leave it 1 click before i loose performance :p
