AMD's latest GPU driver adds support for the Radeon RX 5500

More Navi Coming: AMD Unveils Radeon RX 5500, RX 5500M GPUs for Q4 2019 AMD Radeon RX 5500 takes on the GTX 1650 for entry-level gaming

MSI launched the new Alpha 15 today, which is the first laptop to include AMD's new Radeon RX 5500 series graphics. The new Radeon RX 5500 and Radeon RX 5500M GPUs are said to deliver the ultimate in high-performance, high-fidelity 1080p gaming.

Some displays may intermittently flash black when Radeon FreeSync is enabled and the system is at idle or on desktop.

The AMD RX 5500 XT and RX 5500 are coming to desktops and the RX 5500M will be coming to laptops. Both are built around a smaller Navi 14 GPU and take aim at 1080p gaming. AMD itself claims that the 5500 is as much as 37 percent faster than the GTX 1650.

AMD also compared the performance per watt of the RX 5500 to the older GCN-based RX 480, rather than the RX 580, touting a 1.6 times performance boost. MSI is expected to launch the MSI Alpha 15 laptop by the end of this month and it will be powered by the Radeon RX 5500M GPU.

The RX 5500M provides up to 30 percent faster performance on average than the competition. So, it makes sense for AMD to conk two birds with a single driver release. "Whether fighting the Calypso twins in Borderlands 3 or battling to take back Auroa in Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, the Radeon RX 5500 series allows every gamer to feel fully immersed and lose themselves in these lovely and complex worlds". So, you'll be able to use AMD latest features including Radeon Image Sharpening for increased detail, FidelityFX's post-processing effects, and Anti-Lag to reduce input-to-display response time on your gaming monitor. When paired with Radeon GPU upscaling, RIS enables sharp visuals and fluid frame rates on high-resolution displays.

The GPUs are intended for optimal 1080p gaming, and AMD promises significant performance improvements over Nvidia's offering in the mid-price range.

Regardless, the Radeon RX 5500 series looks to potentially offer renewed punch for AMD to throw in the budget to mid-range graphics card fight.

For Malaysia, the Alpha 15 apparently comes standard with 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM, 512GB NVMe PCIe solid state drive, and per-key RGB keyboard designed by SteelSeries.

Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but the cards and laptops with the mobile versions of the RX 5500 are expected to launch sometime in Q4 2019.
