AMD announced in early October the new card RX 5500 series based on the 7nm process, RDNA architecture, navi core, including the desktop and mobile versions, but has not been officially released. Now, a leak edifice of a suspected promotional material from AMD details the specifications and performance of the RX 5500 series.
The RX 5500 is based on the Navi 14 core, has 22 computing units, 1408 stream processors, core frequency desktop game 1670MHz, acceleration 1845MHz, mobile game 1448MHz, acceleration 1645MHz (base frequency not mentioned), with 128-4/8GB GD6DR memory frequency, equivalent to 1Hz4G, bit2GB.
The card typical power desktop version 110W, mobile version 85W, requires a single 8-pin auxiliary power supply, support PCIe 4.0.
The competitor’s positioning is the NVIDIA Turing family’s lowest-end model, the GTX 1650, which claims to be a 49% lead in the performance of the 3A popular game, and a 37% average performance for mainstream e-racing games – a level that feels appropriate for the GTX 1660 Super.
However, the material does not list the legendary premium RX 5500 XT, which is said to have all 24 computing units and 1,536 streaming processors.
It’s also worth noting that in the product line layout, the Radeon VII, which is said to have been discontinued and delisted, is still on the list, but Polaris’s RX 590/580/570 is gone, leaving only RX 560/550, and it looks like polaris, which has been out for years, is finally retiring.
