AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT OpenCL Benchmarks Leak Out: Slower than NVIDIA’s GTX 1650 Super


AMD’s Navi based budget GPU, the Radeon RX 5500 XT can’t be far from launch now. The Polaris replacement is expected to hit shelves in the coming days, and we’ve started seeing initial benchmarks. Keep in mind that these tests are purely synthetic and not the actual representation of the real-time performance. Just take them as a rough estimate. Today, the OpenCL tests of the Navi 14 card were shared on Twitter and we ran some comparisons with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650 and 1650 Super. Here are the results:

These are the Geekbench 4 benchmarks of the Radeon RX 5500 XT and the GTX 1650 Super. We can see that the former is an 8GB model while the latter has just 4GB VRAM. As you can see, the 1650 S has a small lead over the XT but keep in mind that this is the OpenCL bench, run on different platforms. The NVIDIA card leverages the CUDA platform while the Navi 14 GPU uses AMD’s APP API. The deltas will not also only be due to the hardware but the software and API deficits too. Let’s look at the Geekbench 5 test:

The GTX 1650 Super retains a small lead over the 5500 XT in Geekbench 5 as well. However, given the small delta in the scores, I expect these two cards to trade blows in most titles. Which of them comes out on top will depend on the pricing and of course the in-game performance figures.

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
