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.

ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT Challenger D 8G OC

ASRock's mid-range Navi 14 contender features a dual-fan, dual-slot slot design along with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, a black shroud with yellow trim, and a silver backplate. The card will come with a factory overclocked to 1737 MHz and utilizes 3x DisplayPort connectors and 1x HDMI connector for display output. ASRock is also set to offer a 4GB variant of the 5500 XT Challenger D. As of right now, it is unknown whether or not ASRock will offer a Taichi or Phantom Gaming variant of the 5500 XT. Pricing is yet to be revealed.


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.


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.
