Initially, the adapter has only 6 GB
We have already seen how the GeForce RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 video cards were soldered with additional memory. Now enthusiasts have reached the Radeon RX 5600 XT 3D card.
The authors of the channel Paulo Gomes took the adapter of 2020, which is initially equipped with only 6 GB of memory with a 192-bit bus. Native memory chips of 1 GB each were replaced with 2 GB chips. A 12 GB version of the RX 5600 XT or some kind of related card with such parameters never existed, but a BIOS modification allowed the final solution to work.

Unfortunately, the authors did not conduct any volumetric tests. They just launched the Superposition Benchmark, upscaling the resolution to 10,240 x 4320 pixels to put more stress on the 3D map. As a result, the modified adapter showed a result more than twice as high as the regular version of the RX 5600 XT.
