1408 Cores, 8 GB GDDR6, $199

AMD or should I say, its board partners, launch their custom Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics cards today. Featuring the Navi 14 GPU, the Radeon RX 5500 XT aims to offer best-in-class 1080p AAA gaming performance while it competes against NVIDIA’s entry-level GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, a $159 US graphics card which comes in 4 GB flavors only.

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Custom Graphics Cards Officially Available – 4 GB Starting at $169 US, 8 GB Starting at $199 US

The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT is a very important graphics card that is placed in a super competitive segment. Taking up the battle with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, the RX 5500 XT will not only compete against the upgraded Turing offering, but also the Radeon RX 590 which is currently being sold at discounted prices and has a really good price to performance value. Still, the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT packs a lot of crunch for a little beast that it is.

Our review of the MSI Radeon RX 5500 XT Gaming X will be live tomorrow as we only got hands on the drivers yesterday. With that said, you can find some really impressive custom designs of the RX 5500 XT such as the Gaming X from MSI which we just mentioned above. All of the models come in reference and factory overclocked flavors, offering better cooling designs than the reference OEM model.

The 8 GB model is launching at an MSRP of $199 US which is close to the $229 US of the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER while the 4 GB model is launching at an MSRP of $169 US which is $10 US higher than the $159 US GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER (4 GB). In terms of performance, the 4 GB variant has performance that matches the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER while sipping in more power. The 8 GB model should offer slightly better performance than the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER with its higher frame buffer uplifting the performance in games with high-res textures.
