    Phoronix: AMD Announces Navi 14 Based Radeon RX 5500 Series

    AMD today lifted the lid on the Radeon RX 5500 series as their first Nav 14 based graphics card. This is the soft launch with no units shipping yet but expected to starting in November...

    Is this strictly going to be an OEM-only GPU and not available to the general public?

    And.

    bridgman Can you find the person who wrote the "Cautionary Statement" and teach them the location of the enter key. I'm dyslexic and 5 lines in that just becomes word salad and a real struggle.

    Intel Corporation’s dominance of the microprocessor market and its aggressive business practices may limit AMD’s ability to compete effectively
    Dammit, AMD. How am I supposed call shenanigans in the Intel thread when y'all post that?

      If
      Radeon RX 5500 series should offer comparable performance to the Radeon RX 570 Polaris
      , what would be the advantage over simply buying an RX 570 ? Will it be cheaper ? Run cooler ? Very curious as to what this card will bring to the table…

        Should be way more efficient than the rx570. Also amd has really horrible spread with several chips needing high voltages.
        I have to limit mine to 60% of the max powerdraw so it won't crash under Linux (OS drivers, would need to
        Switch kernel for the closed source ones) . Windows is fine, means I am back to dual booting since I replaced my Nvidia card.

            Nice, but I hope they will release a version also with passive cooling that I can put in parents computers, because for their needs, (browsing, watching videos on Youtube or with Kodi) it will be great to have the GPU silent.

              That is a really good question, hopefully we can get an in-depth review from Micheal. I especially would like to see comparisons of general workstation loads, engineering and science loads too. Of course we have to wait for software to catch up !!

              off the top of my head though these should be true:

              1. Lower power usage for a given performance.
              2. Better video encode/decode hardware.
              3. Compute is likely a wash.

              actually I’m hoping that the video decoder handles the latest standards. Will need to review the release information but this all alone can make Navi worthwhile.

              a bit of an update, the linked press release does nothing for me. There are few details and too much focus on 1080p. The releases seems to ignore that 4K is even a thing. Is AMD marketing out of touch again?

                Well, it most likely won't handle AV1, at least the RX 5700 (XT) does not.

                And with only RX 570 like performance it should be a little bit cheaper.

                  Maybe to be more competitive with the NVIDIA GTX 1600 series.. with low power consumption..?
                  Any way,
                  I think that the RX500 is a very nice peace of hardware, very good OpenCL 2.0, the problem is that is not a universal card( because it needs PCIe 3.0 atomic operations supported in the CPU and in the motherboard, to be compliant.. ).

                  This requirement in not good( PCIe 3.0 atomics.. ),
                  Maybe the RX 5500 series don't have that limitation..?

                  After all Nvidia cards are universal, you can trow a recent Nvidia card into a pcie 1.1/PCIe 2.0/PCIe 3.0 and it will work there, this is something very very valuable when people buy hardware, Nvidia got it right..
                  Sometimes you do have old machines around you, and if they work well, why should you be in need to change that..( some times they even make part of a bigger implementation, and you don't want to mess too much there, or you end in the need for a new set of projects with down times and losses, guaranteed.. )?!
                  right, you change the hardware that brakes( ..and here is were NVidia got it right.. ).

                    Why are you saying RX 570, when amd's own slides tells it should be 12% faster than RX 480?
