This should be an interesting month for Radeon fans. VideoCardz is reporting that AMD will introduce both desktop and mobile variants of its new GPU, the RX 5500, on October 7. It’s meant to compete against NVIDIA’s GTX 1650, offering up to 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.
This spec has already been confirmed by GIGABYTE’s RX 5500 SKUs, which have appeared on the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office. The naming scheme suggests that all RX 5500 GPUs could be “XT” models.
During the call, AMD has been using Polaris-based RX 480 for comparison. We do not know the price yet, but one could guess it will not be higher than 200 USD. The Radeon RX 5500 and Radeon RX 5500 Mobile will not be available till later this quarter (no exact date was given).
