  • AMD officially announces RX 5500 series, obliterates GTX 1650


    https://www.amd.com/en/products/grap...radeon-rx-5500





    Spoiler













































     








    VideoCardz is reporting that AMD is to announce the RX 5500 series as expected today, October 7th (I wonder why..).




    https://videocardz.com/82162/amd-ann...h-gddr6-memory




     








     




    They are apparently announcing 3 SKU's:




    Quote





    The RX 5500 series will feature three SKUs: the RX 5500M, RX 5500 and RX 5500 XT






    The RX 5500M has 4gb (Not confirmed whether GDDR5 or GDDR6 though), while the 5500 non-XT has 4gb GDDR6, and the 5500XT has 8gb GDDR6. There were rumors of a 3gb card, but it looks like those were untrue if this is anything to go by.




     




    They also suggest that this card competes against the lower-end Polaris and Turing cards:




    Quote





    Throughout the presentation, AMD compares its new graphics card to Radeon RX 480 and GeForce GTX 1650. The RX 5500 is meant to be better than both.






    I find this very very interesting. Is this a hint at the pricing? They couldn't, could they? If they price this alongside the 1650, WOW. I don't think any of us would have expected that.




     




    VideoCardz has also leaked the performance slides AMD is going to show (no resolution, but I assume it's 1080p in some form):




     








     




    That is some serious butt-whooping going on there. This is far ahead of the RX 570, which is about on par with the 480. It may well be that AMD can deliver what people wanted, a true RX 570 replacement. I'd imagine these numbers would put it around the 1660 performance. That is nearly 20% faster overall than the RX 480 there, while apparently being 1.6X the performance per watt, and well..I'm not even going to bother calculating the difference over the 1650 cause that is a huge gap.




     




    And by the way, the 5500 isn't the only one beating the 1650. The 5500M (Assuming that means a mobile part) is beating the full 1650 as well, despite being pitted against the 1650 mobile part. Now it remains to be seen: How are Nvidia going to respond to this? AMD have responded to a 1650 Super, they've countered that without it even being launched yet.




     




    If they price the 5500 at $150, then..the RX 570 successor has finally arrived. There's a new king in town. Budget buyers finally have something worth buying.




     




    EDIT: ITS OFFICIAL.









    Navi will also appear in laptops too! The 5500M will appear in a number of laptops, including MSI's Alpha 15 for $999:

    No official pricing details yet or release date however for the desktop parts. Also..there are no reference designs. All custom.




     




    You also get a free game with these cards. Either Ghost Recon Breakpoint or Borderlands 3! And Wccftech are reporting (grains of salt, not official) that the 5500 will launch at $130 and 5500XT at $150. Power consumption has also been revealed by AMD at 110w TBP for the 5500.

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.
