AMD Radeon RX 5500M vs AMD Radeon RX 5700M
AMD Radeon RX 5500M► remove from comparison
The AMD Radeon RX 5500M (or RX 5500 Mobile Graphics) is a mobile mid-range graphics card based on the Navi 14 chip (RDNA architecture) manufactured in the modern 7nm process. It features 1,408 cores clocked at 1,645 MHz (max. Boost, 1448 MHz max game clock) and fast GDDR6 graphics memory (14 Gbps).
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 RX5500M should be between the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q and the normal GeForce GTX 1660 Ti according to AMD. That means it should be best suited for Full HD (1920x1080) with high or maximum settings in demanding games. AMD states that the 5500M should be able to hit a performance of up to 4,6 TFLOPS (theoretical) versus 5,2 (+12%) of the desktop Radeon 5500. In our gaming benchmarks with the MSI Alpha 15, the RX 5500M however was slightly slower on average than the older GTX 1060 (mobile) and therefore between GTX 1650 and GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q.
The 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). In the MSI Alpha 15 the power consumption was clearly higher than the GTX 1060 and GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q and only slightly below a normal GTX 1660 Ti (measured in The Witcher 3 with an external monitor).
AMD Radeon RX 5700M► remove from comparison
The RX5700M is a mobile high-end graphics card for laptops. It uses the Navi 10 chip (like the desktop RX 5700 and 5700 XT) and therefore also the RDNA architecture. Like the desktop counterparts, the mobile RX 5700M uses dedicated GDDR6 graphics memory connected with a 256-bit bus. The performance is intended to be between the mobile RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 (3DMark 11 GPU score).
The Navi 10 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 TDP of the chip is rated at 120 Watt and therefore clearly lower than the desktop RX 5700 (150 Watt) but clearly higher than the lower end RX 5500M (85 Watt). Therefore, the chip is intended for big gaming laptops.
Beware, currently our information is based on leaks and rumors and may therefore change till the chip is officially announced (early 2020).
