Radeon RX 5500M – the new king of budget mobile gaming

Mobile graphics card Radeon RX 5500M, unlike its desktop sister, is already available for purchase. Of course, not separately, but as part of some laptops.

For example, the MSI Alpha 15 Gaming in the base version with a Ryzen 7 3750H processor and Radeon RX 5500M costs $ 1,000. Given that this is one of the first models, in the future more affordable options will clearly appear on the market.

In general, the Radeon RX 5500M is a competitor for the mobile GeForce GTX 1650. And although AMD itself claims that its new product is significantly ahead of the opponent, it is best to learn everything from third-party tests.

In this case, the situation is complicated by the fact that different laptops with different processors and other parameters are tested, but you can try to pick up similar devices with different GPUs.

NotebookSpec site just got a fresh review of MSI Alpha 15 Gaming, and a little earlier the review of HP Pavilion Gaming 15. The first one is based on a combination of Ryzen 7 3750H and Radeon RX 5500M, and the second – on Ryzen 5 3550H and GeForce GTX 1650. That is It is quite possible to compare.

As you can see, the Radeon RX 5500M is often really significantly ahead of the GeForce GTX 1650. More precisely, the new AMD is faster in four out of five games. But this is the case if you look at the average frame rate. But the minimum advantage of the Radeon RX 5500M is slightly less pronounced, since in PUBG there is parity between the cards.

But in general, of course, it is the Radeon RX 5500M in this pair that is the winner, and often the gap is very wide.
