In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5300M are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4GB.

The Radeon RX 5300M has a 277 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M395X, but the R9 M395X has 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon RX 5300M. As a result, the R9 M395X exhibits a 4.5 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon RX 5300M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon RX 5300M has a 277 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M395X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon RX 5300M providing 8.9 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 Radeon RX 5300M was released over three years more recently than the R9 M395X, and so the Radeon RX 5300M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the R9 M395X when running the latest games.

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 R9 M395X has 1024 MB more video memory than the Radeon RX 5300M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon RX 5300M has 64 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M395X, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon RX 5300M is much better than the R9 M395X.

The Radeon RX 5300M has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon RX 5300M is 1322 and the actual shader performance of the R9 M395X is 1259. The Radeon RX 5300M having 63 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon RX 5300M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 M395X.

The Radeon RX 5300M transistor size technology is 21 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 M395X. This means that the Radeon RX 5300M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 M395X.

The Radeon RX 5300M requires 85 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M395X 4GB requires 125 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the Radeon RX 5300M. The R9 M395X requires 40 Watts more than the Radeon RX 5300M to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 M395X may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon RX 5300M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5300M is an entry-level laptop graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000M series.

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

The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1445MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

The RX 5300M comes with a 3GB 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.

The Radeon RX 5300M 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 5300M 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 5300M is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range Ryzen 5 processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 5300M.
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (CGN).

Radeon R9 M395X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Amethyst XT which is a Third Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Tonga XT GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R9 380X.
Amethyst XT has 32 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

The Central Unit is Clocked at 723MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 125W, it is suited for very large laptops.

Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M295X 4GB.
Performance is Comparable to the desktop Radeon R9 280. Therefore, even GeForce GTX 970M is still faster.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M395X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
