AMD has released the budget segment card, the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT to counter its opponent the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super. Today we will compare RX 5500 XT Vs GTX 1650 Super & see whether the 5500XT is worth it or not.
Specifications of RX 5500 XT Vs GTX 1650 Super
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 is a bit powerful GPU than the non-super GTX 1650 version and also it has GDDR6 VRAM memory type instead of GDDR5 like in the GTX 1650.
This card was launched for budget category market especially those who cannot build a high-end gaming pc yet they want to play modern AAA titles with good frame rates at 1080p with decent at least medium to high settings.
Obviously, the card is based on the latest “Turing” architecture from Nvidia this year but it has not the dedicated hardware built-in for ray tracing.
- 1280 CUDA Cores.
- Boost clock speed is 1725MHz.
- The base clock speed is 1530MHz.
- The memory speed is 12Gbps.
- 4GB of GDDR6 VRAM.
- 128-bit memory interface.
- Memory bandwidth is 192GB/s
- 100W is the power consumption of the reference cards.
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
Well, you guys know that AMD is trying hard to capture the GPU market just like it has done in the past couple of years in the CPU market with its counterpart Intel. AMD now has more than 80% percent market capture in the CPU department.
They are trying to make new generation cards with the latest technology and features but still, they are lacking behind just because of price to performance ratio in some budget cars like this in the 5500XT.
AMD’s older cards are now getting some very good discount that you can ignore many newer cards whether it is from AMD or Nvidia just because the price to performance gap is much higher in older cards right now.
- Based upon the latest RDNA architecture from AMD.
- It uses 7nm FinFet architecture.
- It has 22 computer units.
- The game frequency is 1717MHz.
- Boost frequency is up to 1845MHz.
- Memory speed (effective) is 14Gbps.
- It has two variants 4GB and 8GB.
- Uses GDDR6 memory.
Comparison between AMD Radeon RX 5500XT Vs Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 Super
Well, there is no comparison between these cards as between RX 5500 XT Vs GTX 1650 Super, the GTX 1650 Super becuase the 5500XT clearly wins in almost every category here, but just in case if in near future Nvidia brings some amazing update in there drivers then might be the gap can be close.
Here are the benchmarks:-
In the last, between RX 5500 XT Vs GTX 1650 Super, I will not suggest any of the cards because you can get better ones because there are insane discounts are going on especially for Indian guys. The older cards either from Nvidia or AMD both have the same amount of discount almost 50% percent on their MSRP.
You can get AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB in 11k – 12k easily right now in India. The card is on sale right now. But if they are not in stocks & you want to choose between RX 5500 XT Vs GTX 1650 Super then the obvious answer goes with GTX 1650 Super because of the power consumption and also the drivers are better on Nvidia for other works, I mean other than gaming the drivers are much more good on the Nvidia side.
