AMD Radeon RX 5300 Silently Arrives on AMD WebsiteAugust 30, 2020
AMD recently updated the product list on its website and added a new graphics card in the form of the Radeon RX 5300.
We’ve seen rumor articles about an entry-level Radeon card over the interwebs. The rumored entry-level Radeon graphics card has a theoretical gaming performance that surpasses that of the Nvidia’s reigning entry-level king, the GTX 1650. The rumored Radeon entry-level card was said to be a cut-down version of the Radeon RX 5500 XT.
Some of the details of the rumors were correct and some were way off, but today AMD has put all the rumors to rest, as it formally reveals the Radeon RX 5300 on its website. At a glance, the similarities of the RX 5500 XT and RX 5300 are striking, as both of them have the same number of ALUs at 1408 and texture units at 88. The difference between the two is found in the amount of VRAM. While the RX 5500 XT has two available variants, the 4GB and 8GB, the RX 5300 is inferior with only one variant available that only has a 3GB VRAM. The two AMD graphics card are also different when it comes to speed, memory bus, and memory bandwidth with the RX 5500 XT leading in all categories.
While the other RX 5000 series graphics cards are available now in the market as individual components, the RX 5300 will most likely be inside the pre-builts of AMD’s partner brands, just like the Radeon Pro RX 5300M and Radeon Pro RX 5500M on Apple’s new MacBooks.
