AMD Radeon Pro W5500: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon Pro W5500 sales 10 February 2020 at a recommended price of $399 . 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 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 224.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is single-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x8 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 125 Watt.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 23.48% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.
