AMD unveils new entry-level graphics cards

AMD Navi 14 die shot

AMD Navi 14 die shot

The Radeon RX 5500 and RX 5500M are based upon 7nm Navi 14 GPUs and aim to bring RDNA gaming architecture to the mainstream 1080p gaming market on desktop and mobile, respectively. This series stands slightly below the previously launched RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 GPUs. But it's more surprising to see AMD make a stand in laptops with a standalone GPU, and not just Vega graphics tied to a Ryzen processor like it has for the past few years. As they compare cards from other companies, AMD says that its new desktop cards will offer up to "37% faster performance on average" over competing GPUs when playing games at 1080p, while the mobile version will offer up 30% faster performance. The Radeon RX 5500 series will usher in the very first mid-range graphics cards using next-gen GDDR6 memory, a big upgrade over the GDDR5 used on mid-range graphics cards right now. You'll also see some pretty significant performance differences against NVIDIA's GTX 1650: the RX 5500 hits 135 FPS in Overwatch compared to NVIDIA's 89 FPS, and it also outpaces the GTX 1650 by almost 50 FPS in Rainbow Six Siege. Whereas the laptop variant's base clock is expected to be up to 1.4 GHz and its boost clock is said to touch 1.6 GHz.

According to AMD's benchmarks, the RX 5500 delivers 92 FPS in Gears 5 and 60 FPS in Ghost Recon Breakpoint with both titles on medium settings in DirectX 11. Now, it finally has a way to take on NVIDIA when it comes to budget gaming notebooks.

Murray climbs over 200 places as Djokovic stays top in ATP rankings
Murray took the top seed to a second-set tie break in Beijing before his challenge ended in a 2-6 6-7 (3) loss. He committed nine unforced errors as Thiem stormed to a 5-0 lead (this time majority came off the backhand).

The RX 5500 line will be comprised of two main series: the RX 5500 series for desktops and the RX 5500M series for laptops. Equipped with a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS-level display with 144Hz refresh rate, the display panel apparently has native support for AMD Radeon FreeSync technology.

MSI announced a new gaming laptop with the Alpha 15.
