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.

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.
