Following its recent reveal by AMD, further details of the Radeon RX 5500 range of budget GPUs have been spilled online, which will be firmly targeting Nvidia’s GTX 1650, aiming to outdo that rival product by some considerable margin.
The leak is apparently genuine, with presentation materials shared on Reddit which come directly from AMD’s marketing system (somehow). They show that the RX 5500 series slots in below the RX 5700, and above the existing RX 560 graphics cards, seemingly replacing the RX 570/580/590 GPUs which are no longer mentioned in the product stack.
- AMD Radeon RX 5700 vs RX 5700 XT
- AMD’s graphics cards are crushing it, beating out Nvidia
- These are the best graphics cards of 2019
The RX 5500 range are ‘performance’ GPUs targeted at mainstream gamers and esports titles; essentially 1080p gaming in general, as we already know.
