Gigabyte Radeon RX 6500 XT 4GB Review

It’s new graphics card day! Well, sort of new, as it’s actually one of the more affordable models in the AMD Radeon range. So while it’s not going to be pushing the boundaries of innovation, it will hopefully fill an important void in the market right now. While I doubt this card will really sit at MSRP for long, graphics cards are just too damn expensive at the moment. There are a lot of gamers out there that simply need something in their price range, even if it’s not the high-end card they wish it was. With that in mind, the Radeon 6500 XT promises to be one of the more affordable cards on the market this year, while delivering reasonable performance for 1080p and 1440p gamers, which really makes up the majority of the market anyway. With it being a lower-end part, it’s likely that yields will be higher too, ensuring more hardware makes it to market.

Gigabyte has a promising looking card here, and with this being a more entry-level graphics card, it’s not going to use too much power, meaning you won’t need a huge PSU to run it. However, that also means it shouldn’t generate too much heat either, so the huge aftermarket cooler from Gigabyte should ensure it can hit those higher clock speeds pretty much all day long. The cooler is likely overkill, but if it delivers good performance, I can’t complain too much. The only concern is the VRAM, which is just 4GB. While this should be enough for 1080p, it isn’t exactly plentiful for those wanting to run more demanding games. However, given it’s a compromise that keeps the price down and reduces the cards appeal to crypto-mining, it’s a necessary evil right now.
