14 Oct 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. All games with system requirements of DirectX 12 or lower are met by this card.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB is at running the more popular games of 2020. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. 763 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Microsoft Flight Simulator and saw it deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 125 FPS, Medium: 99 FPS, High: 67 FPS and Ultra: 48 FPS. We proceeded to look at Phasmophobia to see how that compared and saw that it returned a good 63 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Microsoft Flight Simulator to see how the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB dealt with it. It scored up a playable series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 96 FPS, Medium: 75 FPS, High: 51 FPS and Ultra: 36 FPS. Next we looked at Phasmophobia which was reasonable with a 48 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at FIFA 21 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 124. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB we get the impression that it is more than capable at running this screen resolution. 1440p Ultra across almost all modern games is going to be fairly standard with this GPU. We would consider moving this hardware up to 4K screen resolutions for PC gaming today.

How many years will the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 5500 XT Gigabyte OC 8GB?

This PC hardware upgrade performs 21% better and can run 825 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 30% better and can meet 927 of their recommended requirements.
