MSI registers six RX 5500 XT graphics cards, which includes overclocked GPUs


Far more AMD RX 5500 XT graphics cards have appeared in the EEC database, with MSI registering six unique versions of the mainstream Navi GPU, which includes certain overclocked SKUs. Although the listing was published currently it does bear saying that it also involves references to GTX 1650 Ti SKUs also, and the most current, extremely trusted, rumours carrying out the rounds recommend that there will be no such card. The GTX 1650 Super will reportedly take its spot in the Nvidia GeForce steady.

AMD has nominally currently released the RX 5500-series cards, but has carried out so in a rather strange manner. It has opted to concentrate initially on an OEM launch for the mainstream Navi GPUs, supplying an RX 5500 card in a single MSI laptop, with other technique integrators building RX 5500-primarily based desktop PCs.

There has been no certain mention of the release of standalone RX 5500-series cards apart from the guarantee that they would arrive later on this year to challenge for a position in our finest grapics card list. We’ve extended anticipated there to be an RX 5500 XT as effectively as a decrease-spec RX 5500 card, even though AMD has only pointed out a solitary reduce-down GPU that does not utilise all the Navi 14 chip’s cores.

Gigabyte has currently taken the step of listing its personal overclocked RX 5500 and RX 5500 XT SKUs, but with a different main AMD graphics card companion placing the XT on the board, with MSI registering so quite a few of them, that appears like pretty strong confirmation that after we do get card for the DIY crowd there will be a complete-spec GPU on the cards also.

‘On the cards.’ Geddit? I’m wasted on you lot…

RX 5500 RX 5500 XT
GPU Navi 14 Navi 14
Lithography 7nm 7nm

Memory up to 8GB GDDR6 up to 8GB GDDR6
Memory interface 128-bit 128-bit
Transistors six.4bn six.4bn
Die size 158mmtwo 158mmtwo

The base RX 5500 GPU sports just 1,408 RDNA cores with 22 compute units. But the initial database entries we’ve noticed for the AMD Navi 14 GPU, and the official chip renders themselves, all show a graphics processor with up to 24 compute units and consequently 1,536 RDNA cores.

We nonetheless do not know what the pricing is going to be either on the desktop RX 5500 or the extra completely featured RX 5500 XT, but if we’d have to guess it is going to extremely significantly rely on how the AMD cards execute against the upcoming Nvidia GTX Turing Super cards – the GTX 1660 Super and GTX 1650 Super – and how group GeForce price tag their new mainstream GPUs also.

We’ve heard from sector insiders that there will not be critical production of RX 5500-series graphics cards till November, so it could be pretty late into the year prior to we see standalone GPUs formed from the Navi 14 silicon.
