XFX Radeon RX 5600 XT Thicc II Pro review: A good graphics card in a weird place
The XFX Radeon RX 5600 XT Thicc II Pro is a good $300 graphics card that suffers from AMD’s disjointed launch for the Radeon RX 5600 XT . AMD pitched its $280 GPU as a rival to Nvidia’s identically priced GeForce GTX 1660 Ti .

The eleventh-hour change indeed made the RX 5600 XT competitive with Nvidia’s RTX 2060, but AMD’s partners had already designed their lineup around the original specifications.
