In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500M 4GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB.

The RX 5500M has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 560. This results in the RX 5500M providing 45.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 5500M has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RX 560. This results in the RX 5500M providing 25.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 5500M was released over a year more recently than the RX 560, and so the RX 5500M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 560.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 5500M has 2048 MB more video memory than the RX 560, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The RX 560 has 112 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500M, which means that the memory performance of the RX 560 is massively better than the RX 5500M.

The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500M is 1506 and the actual shader performance of the RX 560 is 1306. The RX 5500M having 200 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the RX 560 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The RX 5500M transistor size technology is 7 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 560. This means that the RX 5500M is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 560.

The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB requires 85 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 5500M and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 560. The RX 5500M requires 10 Watts more than the RX 560 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 5500M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the RX 560.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB is an entry-level laptop graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000M Laptop card series. It was announced on October 7th, 2019.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1408 shader processing units, 88 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1375 MHz and goes up to 1645 MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX 5500 XT comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR6 through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 85W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070M. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2019 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this Radeon RX 5500M 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range R5 Ryzen processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 5500M 4GB.
Overview
\\r\\Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

\\r\\nGPU
\\r\\nIt equips a GPU Codenamed Polaris 21 which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

\\r\\nMemory
\\r\\nThe GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, 7GHz effective.

\\r\\nPower Consumption
\\r\\nWith a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

\\r\\nPerformance
\\r\\nThis graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 560 Asus Dual Fan OC 2GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1080p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. It may struggle with the latest high-end AAA titles due to the limited available VRAM.

\\r\\nSystem Suggestions
