The PC gamers world is segmented into many markets both locally and around the world. There is the gamer who is willing to spend a five-figure amount on a new computer, and on the other hand who wants hardware that will be able to want it even less.
After a wave of especially expensive video card launches for the amateur gamer, is coming AMD With a surprising launch of a fast, accessible and innovative product for the gamer segment that has not received too much attention in recent years - it ranges from $ 150 to $ 200.
Get to know the series Radeon RX 5500
This series of video cards is called a "series" because it contains two configurations in which theRadeon RX 5500. One is in the form of a video card for desktops and the other is in the form of a video card for computers Mobile. The goal is simple - smooth and high-quality gaming with FullHD 1920 × 1080 resolution, no less and no more.
And you have the technical details behind the interesting chip. The Radeon RX 5500 is built on the RDNA architecture it introduced AMD With the launch ofRadeon RX 5700 in July. Core This graphic is built on 7 Nm Bell Factory lithography TSMC, And contains 6.4 billion transistors.
God-Radeon RX 5500 contains 22 internal processing groups that are 1,408 consolidated processors. For comparison, theRadeon RX 5700 XT contains 40 processing groups which are 2,560 Processors United. Thus, this is a small core nearly half the size of the RX 5700 XT. This video card uses 4GB or 8GB's זיכרון GDDR6 type on 128BIT bandwidth. The choice of new memory over GDDR5 for example was also made so that the kernel can use unobtrusive bandwidth, and that the memory volume can be symmetrically adjusted to the desired volume of 8GB in the more select models. Of course available inventory of זיכרון New is important to the production line in the near future.
According to AMD, The new architecture allows up to 60% up to Watt performance compared to Radeon RX 480. According to performance data of AMD God-Radeon RX 5500 delivers performance that is on average higher than RX 480 by about 12 percent. So in fact, theRadeon The RX 5500 also outperforms the RX 580, the refresh generation of the RX 480 (which is about 7 percent stronger than it is). The performance of this video card is expected to be very close to the RX 590 and GTX 1060 6GB and not far from those of the GTX 1660. Of course only independent performance tests will paint the whole picture soon.
The core area of the RX 5500 is only 158 millimeters square. This is the smallest area ever for such a performance. Last time we saw space Core Graphically similar was the GTX 1050 with 132 square millimeter, only here performance is significantly higher.
So, how fast theRadeon RX 5500 compared to slightly more relevant video cards?
Although it has not yet revealed the official price of the Radeon RX 5500, both in the 4GB and 8GB versions, it does a direct comparison with the Geforce GTX 1650 of NVIDIA. This comparison is quite interesting, and not only because the RX 5500 is supposedly performing significantly higher, even in titles like Overwatch, which usually have the NVIDIA On top.
AMD has chosen to compare its new video card to one that costs only $ 149, reflecting the expected price tag of the Radeon RX 5500. Currently, we have been informed by AMD that the final price tag will be announced "in the near future". If you have to estimate, the 4GB version may cost similar to the GTX 1650 or $ 10 more, while the 8GB version will probably cost $ 20-30 beyond that. It is very likely that AMD is waiting for the announcement NVIDIA On the enhanced GTX 1650, essentially the GTX 1650 Ti at the same price tag.
The heat shell of theRadeon RX 5500 is set to 150 watts. We may find it contains an 6PIN or 8PIN power connector, depending on the manufacturer's design.
According to AMD, God-Radeon RX 5500 will not accept a reference version (default design), but will start selling directly with third-party models from many video card makers such as Gigabyte, Asus, MSI, Sapphire and-PowerColor. The video card availability has yet to receive an exact date, but it is expected to start selling in time for Christmas, which means that by mid-December it will be on the shelves.
The only way to find Radeon RX 5500 before that would be an OEM version within pre-assembled computers of manufacturers such as:
- Lenovo in Legion T530 and IdeaCentre T540 series
- HP from the OMEN Obelisk series and the Gaming Pavilion series
These laptops will be available in November.
For the first time in a long time, we have a double launch. God-Radeon RX 5500 also comes to its full glory for mobile. God-Radeon RX 5500M contains all the hardware that the desktop model contains, but its working frequencies have been lowered. Also, this model will come with 4GB's זיכרון GDDR6 Only, without 8GB quant configuration.
While the maximum turbo frequency of the desktop version is 1845Mhz, that of the mobile is only 1645Mhz. Of course, all this depends on the actual operating and power temperatures, as this frequency can change and be lower.
Even in the mobile world with the GTX 1650 for laptops NVIDIA Promise AMD A crushing victory in performance that will leave no one doubting which Core Graphic controls games. Here too we see a performance pattern similar to what we see in desktops.
It is important to note that the heat jacket of chip The mobile is 85 watts. This compares to the 50 watts of the GTX 1650. Thus, it is important to know that the war is mainly mobile model work at similar prices. The consumer will be able to choose a laptop that offers more powerful gaming but life battery Shorter averages when playing. Definitely an interesting product that somewhat refreshes the dryness created in the mobile gaming world at more accessible prices.
MSI Alpha 15 is the first laptop to useRadeon RX 5500M and will be available already this month. Another laptop that will launch in December and use the new graphics core is the Nitro 50 by Acer. At the beginning of 2020, we are expected to hear from other manufacturers that are incorporating the RX 5500M in various models.
Raise The Game 's Campaign AMD Continues and also includes the series Radeon RX 5500. Purchasing a video card on both the mobile and desktop versions wins the choice of Borderlands 3 or Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. This is a nice addition to those who want a way to save on buying games.
Feel free to stay up to date when we bring you extensive reviews on theRadeon RX 5500 and its actual performance against the competition. Is the course of launching such a product the right move for AMD? Do you see the potential for success for theRadeon RX 5500? We would love to hear in the comments!
