AMD Radeon Pro 5500 XT: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

AMD started Radeon Pro 5500 XT sales 4 August 2020. This is a RDNA 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 7 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at designers. 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GB/s are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 224.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is an integrated video card. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 125 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 21.47% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
