AMD's Radeon RX 5500 challenges Nvidia in the budget gaming and mobile markets
This month, MSI plans to release Radeon's first RX 5000-powered gaming notebook, the MSI Alpha 15. The Alpha 15 will utilise a Radeon RX 5500M to deliver more gaming performance than Nvidia's competing GTX 1650 (mobile). More notebook makers are expected to adopt AMD's RX 5500M in the coming weeks/months.
In the notebook market, AMD plans to deliver gamers more performance than Nvidia's GTX 1650 Mobile, perhaps making the RX 5500M the GPU of choice for mobile gaming PCs. Ultimately, we will have to wait and see how well these Navi-powered mobile systems are priced before we can call AMD a victor here.
MSI's Alpha 15 will release with an AMD FreeSync display that supports 1080p at 144Hz, and RGB illuminated the keyboard and uses an AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor.
HP, Lenovo, and Acer all plans to release gaming systems with AMD's RX 5500 series GPU in the coming weeks/months.
AMD's Radeon RX 5500 series of graphics cards will be added to the company's new Radeon "Raise the Game" GPU bundle. This will allow purchasers of Radeon RX 5500 GPUs or systems to gain access to a free copy of Borderlands 3 or Ghost Recon Breakpoint. This offer will be available until December 31st 2019.
Sadly, AMD has not specified when standalone RX 5500 series graphics cards will be made available. All that AMD has told us is that they are coming in Q4.
At this time, we know that ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire and XFX are all working on custom Radeon RX 5500 series graphics cards. So far, AMD hasn't mentioned Radeon RX 5500 XT or 5600 series graphics cards to members of the press.
