    AMD Working on the Radeon RX 5500 XT and 5600 XT

    When NVIDIA launched the GTX 16 series Super cards last month, it essentially cemented its position in the budget graphics card segment after taking care of matters in the top-end space. AMD has got two options in the midrange and upper midrange space in the form of the RX 5700 and the 5700 XT but that’s about it. The Polaris lineup in the budget segment is seriously disadvantaged compared to NVIDIA’s Turing offerings. According to Videocardz, team red is looking to fix it with two major product launches in the coming weeks.

    Firstly, the RX 5500 XT is expected to launch next week in two forms: a 4GB and an 8GB model. This gives AMD an advantage over the GTX 1650 Super which is limited to 4GB. We saw the card choke in games like Metro Exodus and Control which use 4GB+ VRAM. (Read that here)

    Another key factor is going to be pricing. For the Radeon RX 5500 XT to be competitive, it needs to cost less than the GTX 1650 Super or at worse the same. This means a price tag of less than 14K.

    Secondly, there’s also mention of the RX 5600 XT a rumored GTX 1660 Super competitor. This is the first mention of the card to date. Videocardz reports that there are at least two AMD partners working on the 5600 XT. It will reportedly have 6GB of GDDR6 memory and a 192-bus (same as the 1660 Super). This should put it right alongside the 1660 Super. A well-priced 5600X XT should help AMD retake the budget GPU space. It expected to launch in Jan 2020. The RX 5500, on the other hand, is expected to stay an OEM exclusive.
