AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Custom Variants Pictured and Detailed - Arriving on The 12th of December
AMD has positioned it's Radeon RX 5500 against the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650, and with that, the RX 5500 has shown a performance lead of up to 50% in multiple titles. Considering the RX 5500 XT is rumored to retain the same number of stream processors, the RX 5500 XT should bring higher clocks to the table to potentially bring the fight to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1660. As of this time, rumors have been circling of a December 12th release date for the 5500 XT, and potentially the release of a 5600 XT in January of 2020.
In terms of complete specifications, the 5500 XT features 1408 stream processors which means that there are 22 CUs or compute units featured on the card. It also packs 88 TMUs and 32 ROPs with clock speeds rated at 1670 MHz base, 1717 MHz game, and 1845 MHz boost clocks. The card manages to deliver up to 5.19 TFLOPs of compute performance at 110W. There's also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory featured on the card that runs across a 128-bit bus interface, delivering a cumulative bandwidth of 224 GB/s.

ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT Challenger D 8G OC
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT GAMING OC
GIGABYTE is preparing a triple-fan 5500 XT variant to be known as the RX 5500 XT GAMING OC. This graphics card will feature GIGABYTE's WindForce 3X cooler, though, because of this, consumers may not see an AORUS variant of the 5500 XT from GIGABYTE, simply because a triple-fan cooler should already be enough for a mid-range GPU such as the 5500 XT, and the AORUS brand is typically used on upscale, premium graphics cards. The 5500 XT GAMING OC is a factory overclocked GPU with a frequency of 1737 MHz and will be available in both 8GB and 4GB variants. 3x DisplayPort connectors and 1x HDMI connectors may be found onboard. Pricing is yet to be revealed.
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT OC
The GIGABYTE 5500 XT OC is positioned a step below the 5500 XT GAMING OC featuring a dual-fan cooler, a black and silver shroud design, and similarly to the 5500 XT GAMING OC, carries 3x DisplayPort connectors and 1x HDMI connector and will be available in either 4GB or 8GB variants.
