AMD's RX 5500 GPU leaks onto the web

Rumour has it that AMD plans to reveal a new graphics card called the Radeon RX 5500 next week, at least according to Videocardz. If their reporting is correct, the graphics card will be available in both desktop and mobile systems, delivering a low-end alternative to AMD's Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards. 

It has been reported that AMD's new RX 5500 will feature 1408 stream processors, as well as a 128-bit memory bus and 4/8GB of GDDR6 memory. At this time the clock speeds of this graphics card are unknown. 

1408 stream processors give the Radeon RX 5500 GPU the same GPU core count as Nvidia's GTX 1660, which contains 1408 CUDA cores. This translates to 22 Compute Units on the Radeon RX 5500, which is around 45% fewer compute units than AMD's RX 5700 XT. 

Videocardz states that AMD's Radeon RX 5500 will be revealed on October 7th, which means that we can expect to hear a lot more about AMD's rumoured low-end Navi graphics cards soon.

This leak leaves a lot of questions to ask, like when will the RX 5500 be released? How much will it cost? And how will it compare to Nvidia's GTX 16xx series graphics cards? If these leaks are correct, we can expect to hear more on October 7th.
