AMD has introduced its new Radeon RX 5500 Series graphics cards this week featuring RDNA gaming architecture to deliver the” ultimate in high-performance, high-fidelity 1080p gaming” says AMD. Powered by RDNA, the Radeon RX 5500 provides up to 1.6X higher gaming performance-per-watt than current Radeon graphics cards based on the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. “ For mobile gaming, a laptop configured with the Radeon RX 5500M GPU provides up to 30 percent faster performance on average than the competition, and delivers up to 60+ FPS in select AAA titles and up to 90+ FPS in select eSports games.”
Built on industry-leading 7 nm process technology and supporting high-bandwidth PCIe 4.0 technology, the new AMD Radeon products take advantage of powerful features to bring 1080p gameplay to the next level, including:
– Radeon Image Sharpening (RIS) – Brings crispness and clarity to in-game visuals that have been softened by upscaling and post-process effects in DirectX 9, 12 and Vulkan titles. When paired with Radeon GPU upscaling, RIS enables sharp visuals and fluid frame rates on high-resolution displays.
– AMD FidelityFX – Offers an open-source toolkit for game developers to add high-quality post-process effects to help make games look beautiful while offering the optimal balance of visual fidelity and performance. Available on GPUOpen, FidelityFX features Contrast-Adaptive Sharpening (CAS), which draws out detail in low-contrast areas while minimizing artifacts caused by typical image sharpening routines.
– Radeon Anti-Lag – Anti-Lag significantly decreases input-to-display response times, including making Borderlands 3 up to 23 percent more responsive with Radeon RX 5500 series graphics and offering a competitive edge in gameplay.
– Largest gaming display ecosystem – With over 950 supported monitors to choose from, gamers can enjoy stutter-free, tear-free gameplay with AMD Radeon FreeSync and Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR technology.
