AMD launches new Radeon RX 5500 and Radeon RX 5500M graphics cards”

Now, we're finally seeing AMD's Navi graphics processors show up in the mobile space, as they'd previously only been available as desktop graphics cards.

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 series provides up to 37 percent faster performance than competing chips, according to AMD.

Now that AMD has planted its feet firmly in the market for midrange 1440p PC-gaming cards, with the release of the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT graphics cards, the company is now focusing on players in the 1,920-by-1,080-pixel (1080p) set.

All three new Radeon RX 5500 series cards are based on the Navi 14 GPU and made on the 7nm process, with 6.4 billion transistors - up from the 5.7 billion transistors on Polaris 10 which is on 14nm.

In addition to the welcome performance against previous gen parts and competitor products, the Radeon RX 5500 series comes with the newest Radeon technologies such as RIS, AMD Fidelity FX, Radeon Anti-Lag, plus compatibility with lots of FreeSync and FreeSync 2 HDR monitors. In a laptop with the RX 5500M, a 30 per cent performance advantage was observed. Whereas the laptop variant's base clock is expected to be up to 1.4 GHz and its boost clock is said to touch 1.6 GHz.

As for price, we should be expecting the Radeon RX 5500 XT for $149 while the RX 5500 should come in at $129.

The MSI Alpha 15 will be the first laptop to include a Radeon RX 5500M, paired with a quad-core Ryzen 7 3750H processor and a Full HD Display with a 144Hz panel. Meanwhile shiny new desktops / laptops from the likes of Acer, HP, MSI and Lenovo will start to ship with Radeon RX 5500 GPUs inside starting next month.

Lastly, AMD has also revealed the first gaming benchmarks for this new series.
