The upcoming marketing information about the AMD Radeon RX 5500 shows some of what we can expect from the budget 1080p graphics card that AMD has officially called a & # 39; Performance & # 39; tier graphics card.
Marketing material for AMD Radeon RX The 5500 has revealed the specifications and positioning of the Navi 14 GPU Based Graphics Card
The mid-range card marketing material revealed on the web has now been revealed. no mention of an RX 5500 XT. Marketing material also shows that the RX 5500 is based on 7nano-meter "Navi 14" silicon, and has a total of 22 RDNA configuration units, which means it has a total of 1,408 stream processors.
The chip also features a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory bus that will pair with either 4 GB or 8 GB running at a speed of 14 GB per second, yielding a whopping 224 GB / s of memory bandwidth. GPU clocks are marked for a 1670 MHz "speed of play" and an 1845 MHz clock increase, while no clock is listed in marketing information.
Marketing information shows a graph comparing the RX 5500 to the GTX 1650, so this means that AMD expects this card to outmatch the GTX 1650. This card is shown to be able to outmatch the GTX 1650 in the most common games like Devil May Cry 5, PlayerUnknown BattleGrounds. Devil May Cry 5 ran on the RX 5500 passing 100 frames per second which then released the GTX 1650 which enabled it to run the Devil May Cry 5 at under 100 frames per second. PlayerUnknown's BattleGround ran up to 30% better compared to the GTX 1650.

Some of the features are:
- Radeon Software Adrenaline
- This is the software Radeon uses to update and overclock the graphics card.
- Radeon Anti-Lag
- Anti-Lag reduces input latency on this driver, providing a fast response time.
- Radeon Image Sharpening
- This allows for GPU lifting to deliver crips looking for visuals.
- FidelityFX is a collection of post-process effects that combines many different effects with fewer shader passes to free your GPU for the best experience you require.
- AMD Radeon FreeSync Technology
- FreeSync Technology features HDR-ready drivers that allow 4K resolution of 60 frames per second but require a DisplayPort 1.4 port on your monitor. (there are currently 900+ FreeSync monitors to choose from).
Also, it is interesting to note that AMD officially called the card a & # 39; Performance tier solution aimed at the GeForce GTX 1650. The performance tier is right below the tier enthusiast line that includes the Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon VII. The Radeon RX 5700 is competing against the GeForce RTX 2060 for $ 349 US while the Radeon RX 5500 series is expected to sell for around $ 150 US but will fight against the GTX 1650 series cards.
This shows a huge performance gap in the AMD line of The Navi cards with no response between the cards for the GeForce GTX 1660 series. The $ 200- $ 300 US market is fully open and current led by the NVIDIA mainstream Turing GeForce GTX 16 series cards. When the RX 5500 is available for sale, until it's competitively priced every penny!
