AMD Radeon RX 5500 GPU to be launched on 7th October

It seems that Videocardz has received confirmation of desktop counterparts of Radeon RX 5500M and RX5300M. Radeon RX 5500M will be announced on the 7th of October.

AMD is going to hold a press call today where it is expected they will reveal some interesting facts about their new Navi graphics cards. A few weeks ago, AMD demonstrated Radeon cards against the old Polaris series. The Radeon series features 22 Compute Units that translates to 1408 stream processors.

However, we know that the upcoming AMD Navi graphics unit is built on the 7nm architecture process, so these Radeon chips might come with a better clocking. It seems that NVIDIA is going to get some serious competition from AMD.
