RX 5500 XT 4GB with i7-6700K benchmarks at Medium Quality settings

At 1440p, RX 5500 XT 4GB can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the RX 5500 XT 4GB is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. The price/performance ratio is excellent for RX 5500 XT 4GB against the competition in budget mid-range cards. With current 4096 MB RAM, the RX 5500 XT 4GB can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

The RX 5700 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest RDNA 1.0 set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the RX 5500 XT 4GB is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 169. AMD ’s xx00 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the RDNA 1.0 graphics card inside the RX 5500 XT 4GB, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 5500 XT 4GB consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 570, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Apex Legends, F1 2019, Forza Horizon 4, Hitman 2 at 60 fps to 65 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 62 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play World War Z, Battlefield V at 61 fps to 64 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 63 fps.
