AMD Radeon Pro W5500: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon Pro W5500 sales 10 February 2020 at a recommended price of $399. This is 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 good gaming and benchmark performance at 35.00 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of Radeon Pro W5500's architecture, market type and release date.
Radeon Pro W5500's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of Radeon Pro W5500's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Radeon Pro W5500's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed on Radeon Pro W5500: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on Radeon Pro W5500. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by Radeon Pro W5500, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of Radeon Pro W5500. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good Radeon Pro W5500 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 99% minimum and 94% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
