According to a new report, AMD's Radeon team is preparing two new GPUs - the RX 5500M and the RX 5300M - based on the company's 7nm Navi (RDNA) architecture and aimed at the laptop market. The two new chips are looking to challenge Nvidia's lower-midrange mobile offerings like the GTX 1650 and the GTX 1050 Ti, respectively.
As per the report from Wccftech, the alleged specifications of the RX 5500M have also been revealed, and are as follows:
- 1408 RDNA stream processors,
- 1645MHz Core Clock (Boost),
- 7nm TSMC FinFET process,
- 14Gbps GDDR6 VRAM.
Sadly, the memory interface width hasn't been specified at this time, nor has the memory bandwidth been revealed. The memory capacity isn't stated either.
A performance comparison using 3DMark11 has been provided, which gives us a rough idea about how the two new chips should stack up against competing products.
From the above scores, it seems like AMD could have a couple of winners in its hand, as both the 5500M and the 5300M seem to outperform their respective competitors fairly easily. This is just a single synthetic DirectX 11-based benchmark, but it's still impressive nonetheless. This could finally enable AMD to improve its competitive positioning in the laptop GPU market that has long been dominated by Nvidia.
