AMD Radeon RX 5500 To Compete with the NVIDIA GTX 1660, Releasing on 7th Oct

According to VideoCardz, AMD is about to announce the mid-range RX 5500 that will compete with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660. The RX 5500 is expected to be announced on the 7th of October.

Leaked Specifications of the Radeon RX 5500:

The RX 5500 will run on a 128-bit bus and might feature memory of up to 8GB GDDR6. The card is expected to feature similar core counts to GTX 1660, giving it a slight edge over the GTX 1650.

When compared to its previous iterations, the Radeon RX 5500 is a significant upgrade over the Polaris based RX 560 with 22 compute units – 1408 stream processors and the 7nm Navi architecture.

Furthermore, AMD will also launch the mobile versions – RX 5500M and RX 5300M this month. This will offer a tough competition to NVIDIA considering the fact that the GeForce GTX 1650 is based on 12nm GDDR5 and the desktop version fails to beat the much older RX 570.

It is to note that NVIDIA is also planning to launch its mid-range GTX 1660 SUPER and GTX 1650 Ti later this month. This will make the budget graphics card segment more competitive than ever. Expect the RX 5500 to be priced competitively at around $180.
