General info

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
2.number of transistors

6400 million

5700 million

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
5.Is dual-GPU
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
AMD Radeon RX 580
The graphics card contains two graphics processing units (GPUs). This generally results in better performance than a similar, single-GPU graphics card.
6.warranty period

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Radeon RX 580)

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
7.Has air-water cooling
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
AMD Radeon RX 580
The graphics card uses a combination of water and air to reduce the temperature of the card. This allows it to be overclocked more, increasing performance.
8.width

180mm

241mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
9.height

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT)

142.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Performance

1.GPU clock speed

1607MHz

1120MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
2.floating-point performance

5.2 TFLOPS

6.1 TFLOPS

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
3.pixel rate

59 GPixel/s

42.9 GPixel/s

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
4.GPU memory speed

1750MHz

2000MHz

The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
5.texture rate

162.36 GTexels/s

193 GTexels/s

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.
8.GPU turbo

1845MHz

1266MHz

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.

Memory

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other apps.
3.RAM

8GB

8.1GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
4.memory bus width

128bit

256bit

A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.
Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.
6.Supports ECC memory
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
AMD Radeon RX 580
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Ports

1.has an HDMI output
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
AMD Radeon RX 580
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
Newer versions of HDMI support higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions and frame rates.
Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.
More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
Allows you to connect to a display using DVI.
Allows you to connect to a display using mini-DisplayPort.

Features

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
4.Supports multi-display technology
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
AMD Radeon RX 580
The graphics card supports multi-display technology. This allows you to configure multiple monitors in order to create a more immersive gaming experience, such as having a wider field of view.
5.load GPU temperature

73°C

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (AMD Radeon RX 580)

A lower load temperature means that the card produces less heat and its cooling system performs better.
6.supports ray tracing
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
AMD Radeon RX 580
Ray tracing is an advanced light rendering technique that provides more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games.
7.PassMark (G3D) result
