AMD has officially announced its latest mid-range graphics cards, the AMD Radeon RX 5500 series. This basically means that the red team will release three variants which are: RX 5500M, RX 5500 and RX 5500 XT. The first one is for mobile whereas the other two are for desktop.
The RX 5500 series will feature GDDR6 memory and a 128-bit bus. Thus, its theoretical maximum bandwidth will reach 224 GB/s. The RX 5500 will support up to 4GB of memory, whereas the RX 5500XT will support up to 8GB.
Moreover, AMD claims that the RX 5500 provides 1.6X performance per Watt over RX 480. Its chip will also have more transistors than Polaris 10 (6.4B vs 5.7B). Videocardz has shared an image with all the known specifications for the new RX 5500 and RX 5500XT. And while AMD promises that RX 5500 series will be available this quarter, there is no specific date yet or price.
