AMD Radeon Pro W5500M vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh
Comparison of graphics card architecture, market segment, value for money and other general parameters.
General performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU core base clock and boost clock speeds, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider their benchmark and gaming test results. Note that power consumption of some graphics cards can well exceed their nominal TDP, especially when overclocked.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Radeon Pro W5500M and GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh 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). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus, if the video card is inserted into a slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
Parameters of memory installed: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors have no dedicated VRAM and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on the reviewed GPUs. As a rule, data in this section is precise only for desktop reference ones (so-called Founders Edition for NVIDIA chips). OEM manufacturers may change the number and type of output ports, while for notebook cards availability of certain video outputs ports depends on the laptop model rather than on the card itself.
APIs supported, including particular versions of those APIs.
Advantages of AMD Radeon Pro W5500M
Much newer (10 February 2020 vs 29 January 2019)
Finer manufacturing process technology (7 vs 12 nm)
Advantages of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh
Wider memory bus (192 vs 128 bit)
More pipelines (1920 vs 1408)
Higher memory bandwidth (264 vs 192 GB/s)
Lower power consumption (65W vs 85W), meaning that the rival with higher TDP might require a better cooler or other thermal solution.
So, which one is the better GPU?
Technical City couldn't decide between AMD Radeon Pro W5500M and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh. We've got no test results to judge.
Be aware that Radeon Pro W5500M is a workstation card while GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile Refresh is a notebook one.
