According to AMD representatives, the Radeon RX 5500 graphics card will rival the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 ($ 150) and will be available until the end of the quarter.
In the arsenal of AMD Radeon RX 5500, there are 1408 stream processors based on the RDNA architecture and a 128-bit memory bus. The video buffer is represented by four or eight gigabytes of GDDR6 with a throughput of 224 GB / s, the GPU frequency in dynamic overclocking reaches 1845 MHz, and the nominal power consumption (Typical Board Power, TBP) is 150 watts.
The reasons for delaying the release date are not reported. But what’s interesting: the source says that the Radeon RX 5500 will be at the level of the Radeon RX 580, although earlier the Radeon RX 480 was taken as a reference point. Not to say that the difference in performance between these models is large, but it does fit on average 10% in favor of the Radeon RX 580. In this regard, we can think that the Radeon RX 5500 will be slightly modified by the time sales start, and will be able to please with great speed. Perhaps this is what delayed the launch.
