In 3DMark the SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 8G chimes in at 5173, slightly over the ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1650 SUPER O4G GAMING.  Not enough of a difference to show that 8GB is making any kind of performance difference here.  The overclocked ASUS ROG STRIX GTX 1650 SUPER O4G GAMING results in the fastest 3DMark score, followed by the overclocked SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 5500 XT 8G which is 4% faster when we overclock that video card.

  1. Nice review. The card tested as I expected it. The additional VRAM isn’t really needed as the card just can’t crunch the #’s quickly enough to do 1440p (where the 8Gb would come in handy).
  2. Just curious… would testing it on a system with PCIE 4.0 make a discernible difference in performance? Sapphire lists it as a PICE 4.0 supporting card.

    Unlikely, unless you were constrained purely by VRAM and it was having to cache out of local VRAM often, which doesn’t seem to be the case in our testing.

    However, we will re-run benchmarks and test directly PCIe 3.0 versus 4.0 in the future. We have many good articles planned, and that is one of them.
