Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5500XT 4GB Review

Overclocking

Sapphire’s PULSE RX 5500XT comes with a slight advantage over the ‘stock’ Radeon RX 5500XT specifications.

Under load, we see the core is able to hit around 1860MHz while the memory hums along at 14GHz effective.

We’ll be using AMD’s latest Radeon Software to do our overclocking here.

You’ll get the usual warnings that overclocking may cause instability and so forth.

We can use a quick button to auto overclock the memory.

It ends up at 1860 MHz for us.

A quick benchmark confirms this for us.

Next up we’ll try to the auto GPU core overclock, which lands at 1990 MHz.

A benchmark shows this level out about 1941MHz, but it does spike into the upper 1900 MHz range initially.

We have to go to manual mode to get both.

Combined, we get a jump of around 200 points in Time Spy, not bad at all.
