With the newest additions to the Radeon family, AMD is bringing its advanced RDNA gaming architecture and industry-leading 7nm process technology to legions of mainstream gamers worldwide in exciting new form factors and systems.
When compared to the GTX 1650, AMD states its RX 5500M will perform about 30% faster in gaming.
While we've yet to see how the Radeon RX 5500 performs in the real world, landing a laptop win like this out of the gate is a huge deal for AMD. It also apt enough that the laptop, the MSI Alpha 15 is also the first model to be rolled out under the equally new series. So, it makes sense for AMD to conk two birds with a single driver release. So, you'll be able to use AMD latest features including Radeon Image Sharpening for increased detail, FidelityFX's post-processing effects, and Anti-Lag to reduce input-to-display response time on your gaming monitor. The 5700 and 5700 XT are both great cards for their price, and soon, the RX 5500 will be joining their ranks. While AMD gets a lot of attention for its high-end cards, these new GPUs are decidedly mid-range, boasting support for resolutions up to 1080p and framerates that fall between 60 and 90 FPS depending on the game. Equipped with a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS-level display with 144Hz refresh rate, the display panel apparently has native support for AMD Radeon FreeSync technology.
AMD has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards.
Better yet, this notebook clocks in at a very attractive price, costing just $999 for a version with 8GB of RAM, or $1099 for a 16GB model. The Radeon RX 5500 graphics cards are expected to be available in Acer Nitro 50 PCs beginning in December 2019.
Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but the cards and laptops with the mobile versions of the RX 5500 are expected to launch sometime in Q4 2019.
