Big shout out to Gigabyte for providing the beauty we get to highlight today! We have in our hands the Radeon RX 5500 XT GAMING OC 8G. Here we go head first into the next step for AMD tech. The Navi GPUs are the first AMD GPUs to use the new RDNA architecture. The compute units have been redesigned to improve efficiency and instructions per clock. It also offers higher performance, lower latency, and less power consumption compared to the previous series. Navi also features GDDR6 support. The card meant to be an entry level card that isn’t going to break the bank while giving back a decent amount of performance. As we know from the other card from Gigabyte with the windforce cooling this card is going to have great cooling. Hopefully we can squeeze a few more MHz out of this particular card. We will get to that later in this review. Until then enjoy all features and spec of this card!
