AMD recently launched 5700 and 5700 XT. These two GPUs having a 7nm process and competing Nvidia in 1440p GPU lineup. However, AMD is busy in processor making and grabbing Intel’s market share.

AMD announced its RX 5500 series for desktop and mobile use. The new RDNA architecture and 7nm process will provide solid base to compete in 1080p gaming. AMD is going to start filling new GPUs in the market. AMD did not reveal the number of upcoming new Navi based GPUs. This will allow AMD to cover the market below 5700 which is in the market approx $350.

Moreover, the primary goal is to target 1080p gaming. However, the announcement didn’t mean the retail RX 5500 series soon before or near Q4. Above all, today’s announcement represents OEM products. In addition, the OEM product will give similar performance as a retail version unless changed. Furthermore, don’t forget AMD also announced its version Radeon RX 5500M. The mobile version will have similar TDP, frequency, and performance as their desktop counterpart.

The Radeon RX 5500 series will also be qualified “Raise the Game” game deal. The RX 5500 series target gaming at 60 to 90 FPS. in addition, RX 5500 will get boost clock up to 1845Mhz and core clock up to 1717 Mhz. However, these will be 128-bit PCIe 4 GPU’s. Moreover, having features like Radeon Anti-Lag and image sharpening, it will also have 8GB DDR memory. The 5500 series will compete with Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU. AMD claims the series on average is 37 percent than Nvidia’s GTX 1650. The RX series will have around 150W power consumption and 5.2 TFLOPs throughput.

Furthermore, the series will also have new features like the Radeon media engine and display engine. In conclusion, AMD’s claim will be validated when third party benchmarks come after its launch.

Intel announced Intel Cascade Lake-X 10th-Gen high end desktop processors lineup which will launch in November. In addition, team blue’s core-x processors will start from just $590 for its model Core i9-10900X. However, the Core i9-9900X will cost around $989. These prices as compare to previous Intel’s HEDT model offers better price/performance ratio. As for AMD’s Threadripper third gen team blue’s announcement of it 10 gen HEDT processors will give a relief.
