SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced the AMD Radeon™ RX 5500 XT graphics card, harnessing the power of the groundbreaking AMD RDNA gaming architecture, up to 8GB of memory and innovative AMD Radeon™ Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition features to unlock the next level of high-performance 1080p gameplay.

The latest addition to the AMD Radeon™ RX 5500 series graphics offerings announced in October, the AMD Radeon™ RX 5500 XT graphics card is optimized to deliver high-performance 1080p AAA and esports gaming. Built on industry-leading 7nm process technology, supporting high-bandwidth PCIe® 4.0 technology and available with either 4GB or 8GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory, it provides up to 13 percent faster performance on average in today’s top AAA games than the competition1, and delivers up to 60+ frames-per-second (FPS) in select AAA games3 and up to 90+ FPS in select top esports titles4.

“Today more than 64 percent of gamers play at 1080p5, and they expect high framerates with high-fidelity graphics, low latency and fully immersive gaming experiences,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. “We designed the AMD Radeon™ RX 5500 XT graphics card with these gamers in mind, bringing the horsepower and power efficiency of AMD RDNA graphics architecture at an accessible price so gamers everywhere can enjoy blistering framerates and crisp visuals in their favorite titles.”

  • AMD RDNA Architecture – Built from the ground up for superior performance, scalability and power efficiency, and designed to power the future of gaming, AMD RDNA gaming architecture provides up to 1.6X higher gaming performance-per-watt than Radeon™ graphics cards based on the prior-generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture6.
  • AMD Radeon™ Anti-Lag7 AMD Radeon Anti-Lag significantly decreases input-to-display response times, including making Overwatch up to 22 percent more responsive8 and offering a competitive edge in gameplay.
  • AMD Radeon™ Boost9 – Delivers up to a 20 percent performance boost during fast-motion gaming scenarios in PUBG by dynamically reducing image resolution, increasing framerates and fluidity, and bolstering responsiveness with little to no perceptible change in image quality10.
