Targeting Nvidia’s GTX 1650

Further leaks about the Radeon RX 5500 range of budget GPUs have been spilt online.

Tech Radar reports that it is clear from what is out there that AMD is firmly targeting Nvidia’s GTX 1650, aiming to outdo that rival product by some considerable margin.

Presentation materials shared on Reddit which come directly from AMD’s marketing system and show that the RX 5500 series slots in below the RX 5700, and above the existing RX 560 graphics cards, seemingly replacing the RX 570/580/590 GPUs which are no longer mentioned in the product stack.

If the figures are right, AMD’s graphics cards giving Nvidia a good kicking and will be the best graphics cards of 2019.

The RX 5500 range are ‘performance’ GPUs targeted at mainstream gamers and esports titles; essentially 1080p gaming in general, as we already know. According to the materials, AMD is pitching this against Nvidia’s GTX 1650, and the GPU maker provided a bunch of comparative benchmarks to show how much faster the RX 5500 is in some popular games and esports titles at the intended 1080p resolution.

Using AMD’s benchmarking, the Radeon offering is up to 40 percent faster than the GTX 1650 in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and up to 75 per cent faster in Battlefield V. It’s also up to 52 percent better in Overwatch, and 37 percent quicker in Apex Legends.

The performance level seems to be pitched between the RX 580 and RX 590,which as mentioned, may be outgoing models now.

In this sort of war, pricing is key and we don't know that yet.
