AMD released the RX 5500 series graphics based on the new 7nm Navi 14 architecture in early October, but has not been retail-listed, only appearing in OEM machines, while many laptops are starting to use the RX 5500M, and Apple’s new MacBook Pro is a special Pro 5500M. The RX 5500/5500M has 1408 stream processors, 128-bit 4GB GDDR5 memory, but in fact the Navi 14 core has 1536 stream processors, so it is widely expected that there will be an advanced version of the RX 5500 XT, all the power.
Now, JD Mall quietly put on shelves a number of RX 5500 XT, including the View Black Wolf Edition, Sapphire Platinum OC, Dylan Red Dragon, Yingtong Game Master OC, Asrock Challenger, has begun to accept reservations, will be officially sold on the same day as the double 12.
Specific specifications have not been announced, only that there are 8GB GDDR6 memory, some models also support fan intelligent start-stop technology.
RX 5500 XT is priced at 1499 yuan, the initial deposit of 100 yuan to 200 yuan or 10 yuan to 110 yuan, equal to the actual price of 1399 yuan.
Have to say that this price is a bit high, to know that gtX 1650 Super minimum has been killed to 1249 yuan, the highest is only about 1500 yuan.
To make matters worse, the RX 5500 performance and power consumption were not as good as the GTX 1650 Super, so they were waiting for the full RX 5500 XT to compete with the GTX 1650 Super at a low enough price.
Now, the RX 5500 XT is not only more expensive than expected, but according to the latest intelligence obtained bymedia, the RX 5500 XT is not actually the full version of 1536 stream processors, but continues with 1408, only to further increase the frequency and double the memory to 8GB.
So, what about the complete Navi 14 core? At least for now, Apple’s MacBook Pro is exclusive, so it’s clear that the RX 5500 XT is also a “castrated version” and it’s entirely a sacrifice made by AMD to take care of Apple’s big customer.
It is not known whether there will be a full version of the RX 5500 retail market in the future.
