First performance information of the Radeon RX 5500 graphics card has emerged



With the release of the Radeon Navi generation of gaming graphics cards, AMD has introduced a new 7nm RDNA GPU architecture that is at first glance better than the previous GCN, both in terms of lower power consumption and higher operating frequencies.

Last month, AMD introduced the Radeon RX 5500 Navi based model, which should replace the current RX 570 and RX 580 Polaris mid-range models. Although this ticket has not yet been released, the first unofficial results have emerged. They show that the RX 5500 reaches the performance level of the RX 580, earning 12111 points in the 3D Fire Strike test (RX 580 - 12,744; GeForce GTX 1660 - 12525).

In terms of power consumption, the Radeon RX 5500 has significantly reduced the amount of power it needs, consuming 133W when loaded in games, which is significantly lower than the consumption of the RX 580 (207W), and almost equals that of the competing GTX 1660 (128W).


In terms of gaming performance, the following results were noted: 1080p Tomb Raider - RX 5500 delivers 59 fps, RX580 65 fps, and GTX 1660 69 fps. In the 1080p Far Cry 5 test, the RX 5500 records 72 fps, the RX 580 75 fps, and the GTX 1660 85 fps.

As we can see the new "mainstream" Radeon Navi representative records a significant reduction in consumption, providing nearly the same level of performance as the Polaris predecessor. The launch of new RX 5500 models is planned for next month.
