A new leak revealed to the public a little more about a competitor to AMD's graphics card – the Radeon RX 5500. Statistics show that this may alert Nvidia's cheaper models.
We have known for some time that a new AMD Radeon RX 5500 graphics card has been released, but the internal documentation has revealed some impressive technical specifications and also calls the product “the world's most technologically advanced 1080p gaming card”.
According to the documents, the AMD Radeon RX 5500 will provide 49% more performance on AAA game titles and 37% more performance on certain popular eSports titles compared to the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650.
That said, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super came up recently – it seems safe to assume that this document was produced before its announcement – so it will be interesting to see how this model behaves with the new RX 5500.
