With the release of the Radeon Navi gaming graphics card generation, AMD has brought the new 7nm RDN architecture of graphics processors, which at first glance is better than previous GCNs in terms of lower power consumption energy and achieving higher functional frequencies, reports Wccftech.
Last month AMD introduced a model based on the Radeon RX 5500 Navi, which should replace the current RX 570 and RX 580 Polaris models. Although this card has not yet been launched in the market, the first unofficial results have been unveiled. They show that the RX 5500 achieves the performance level of the RX 580, reaching 12111 points in the 3D Fire Strike test (RX 580 – 12,744; GeForce GTX 1660 – 12525).
In terms of consumption, Radeon RX 5500 significantly reduces the amount of power it needs, which consumes 133W when loaded into games, which is significantly lower than the RX 580’s (207W) consumption, and is almost equal while competing with GTX 1660 (128W) model.
In terms of gaming performance, the results were as follows:
- 1080p Tomb Raider – RX 5500 offers 59 fps, RX580 65 fps, and GTX 1660 69 fps.
- In the 1080p Far Cry 5 test, the RX 5500 reaches 72 fps, the RX 580 75 fps, and the GTX 1660 85 fps.
As we can see, the new “mainstream” representative Radeon Navi marks a significant reduction in consumption, providing almost the same level of performance as Polaris’ predecessor. The launch of the new RX 5500 is scheduled for next month.
