AMD Radeon Pro 5500M vs AMD Radeon Pro 5300M

AMD Radeon Pro 5500M

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon Pro 5500M

The AMD Radeon Pro 5500M is a mobile mid-range graphics card based on the Navi 14 chip (RDNA architecture) manufactured in the modern 7nm process. It features all 24 CUs of the chip (=1,536 shaders) and therefore 2 more CUs than the similar named mobile Radeon RX 5500M and desktop RX 5500. However, the clock speed of the GPU and memory is reduced by quite a bit in the Pro models. It was announced in the high end models of the 2019 Apple MacBook Pro 16 with 4 or 8 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory.

The Navi 14 chip uses the new RDNA (Radeon DNA) microarchitecture which is a successor the the GCN instruction set. It features a new processor design, a multi-level cache hierarchy and an improved rendering pipeline with support for GDDR6 memory.

The performance of the Pro 5500M is said to be up to 2.1x compared to the old Radeon RX 560X (predecessor). Although the GPU has two more CUs than the Radeon RX 5500M, the slower core clock speed leads to a 13% slower peak performance according to AMD (4 versus 4.6 TFLOPS). Therefore, the gaming performance should be slightly below the Radeon RX 5500M which was about 1.9x faster than the Pro 560X (Alpha 15 vs MBP15 2019) in games under Windows. Compared to Nvidia GPUs, the performance should be between the GeForce GTX 1650 and GeForce GTX 1060.

The similar RX 5500M chip is specified with a TDP of 85 Watt and therefore 20 Watt more than the slower clocked Radeon RX5300M. In games the power consumption of the chip ranges between 64 and 105 Watt (Ghost Recon gameplay recorded with HWInfo64). However, according to AMD the Pro 5500M is rated at a TGP of 50 Watt and may therefore use selected chips.

AMD Radeon Pro 5300M

► remove from comparison AMD Radeon Pro 5300M

The AMD Radeon Pro 5300M is a dedicated mobile mid-range graphics card for laptops. It uses the new Navi 14 chip (RDNA architecture) which is produced in 7nm. The Pro 5300M was announced in the entry level Apple MacBook Pro 16 in late 2019 and features 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM. Compared to the similar named Radeon RX 5300M, the Pro 5300M features different specifications with 20 instead of 22 CUs and the full 128 Bit memory bus but reduced clock speeds.

The Navi 14 chip uses the new RDNA (Radeon DNA) microarchitecture which is a successor the the GCN instruction set. It features a new processor design, a multi-level cache hierarchy and an improved rendering pipeline with support for GDDR6 memory.

The RX5300M competes directly with the GeForce GTX 1650 and should offer a similar gaming performance. Therefore, we expect the Radeon Pro 5300M to offer a similar performance. The faster Radeon Pro 5500M in the higher end versions of the MBP16 is faster and compares against a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

The mobile RX5300M is specified with a TDP of 65 Watt (versus 85W of the RX 5500M). The "Pro" version however is specified at 50 Watt TGP and therefore the same as the faster Radeon Pro 5500M.
