AMD’s RDNA architecture made quite the splash this summer with the launch of the Radeon RX 5700 family of cards, with the RX 5700XT bringing massive performance to the 1440p world at a great price. The problem is, most gamers don’t play at 1440p. If Valve’s Steam Hardware Survey is any indication, more than 75% of gamers are playing at 1080p or below, with around 65% of all gamers at 1920x1080p resolution. To capitalize on such a massive chunk of the market, AMD is releasing the next tier of the Radeon RX 5000 family with today’s launch of the Radeon RX 5500XT. Packing 6.4 billion 7nm transistors consisting of 1408 stream processors over 22 Compute units and 4GB of GDDR6 memory (with support for board partners to push this to 8GB), the Radeon RX 5500 XT is aimed squarely at the masses, and just in time to be a stocking stuffer for your favorite gamer in need of an upgrade. Let’s take a closer look!
