AMD Radeon RX 5500 slides reveal stiff competition for Nvidia's GTX 1650

Last month, AMD revealed its Radeon RX 5500 graphics card, pairing GDDR6 memory with a 1080p-class graphics card to deliver competitive gaming performance. 

Sadly, AMD's RX 5500 has no release date, at least within the desktop market. ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX have all revealed plans to create Radeon RX 5500 products, but right now none of these graphics cards has been revealed. Furthermore, AMD has not released the MSRP of its RX 5500. 

Right now, the PC community lacks detailed information about AMD's latest RDNA-powered graphics card. Thankfully, the Reddit user juggies has revealed some AMD product slides for AMD's RX 5500, which should help shed some light on Radeon's upcoming product. Sadly, these slides don't detail the RX 5500's MSRP.

Performance-wise, AMD is targetting Nvidia's GTX 1650, promising between a 45% and a 85% performance advantage in "AAA"/"iconic game series" and a 27-38% performance boost in "esports"/"gamer favourites". 

This comparison leaves us expecting a GPU price tag that's similar to Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics card, which leaves us wondering how the RX 5500 will compare to Nvidia's GTX 1650 Super.

AMD advertises its RX 5500 and RX 5500M as VR-ready and with support for up to six displays when using a DisplayPort hub. These cards also support DisplayPort 1.4 with Display Stream Compression (DSC), enabling 4K 144Hz Compatability over DisplayPort 1.4. The RX 5500 will also feature a TDP of 110W.

This allows the RX 5500 to deliver a huge performance boost over AMD's previous low-power GPUs like the RX 560, offering a 2x boost in memory bandwidth and an increase in usable compute units. 

Given the TDP of AMD's RX 5500M graphics card, we can see this as a replacement for the Radeon hardware used in today's MacBooks, which would be a huge win for AMD. 

Sadly, while this information is useful, the two biggest questions surrounding AMD's RX 5500 remain unknown. How much will it cost and when will it release? Hopefully, AMD will have answers to these questions soon.

~50% more oomph than the 1650 would place it head-on against the regular 1660. Has to be pretty cheap indeed.Quote
