SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) ‚ÄĒ Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announ¬≠ced the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series gra¬≠phics pro¬≠ducts, harnes¬≠sing ground¬≠brea¬≠king RDNA gam¬≠ing archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re to deli¬≠ver the ulti¬≠ma¬≠te in high-per¬≠for¬≠mance, high-fide¬≠li¬≠ty 1080p gaming.

The AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series includes the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 gra¬≠phics card that will be available in desk¬≠top PCs from lea¬≠ding manu¬≠fac¬≠tu¬≠r¬≠ers and gra¬≠phics cards from board part¬≠ners, as well as the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500M GPU for note¬≠book PCs. Top sys¬≠tem pro¬≠vi¬≠ders world¬≠wi¬≠de are embra¬≠cing the new pro¬≠ducts, with HP and Leno¬≠vo‚ĄĘ plan¬≠ning to offer Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 gra¬≠phics cards in their high-per¬≠for¬≠mance desk¬≠top gam¬≠ing PCs begin¬≠ning this Novem¬≠ber, and Acer plan¬≠ning to offer sys¬≠tems with the cards begin¬≠ning this Decem¬≠ber. In addi¬≠ti¬≠on, later this month MSI is expec¬≠ted to launch the world‚Äôs first gam¬≠ing note¬≠book powered by AMD Ryzen‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ces¬≠sors and Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500M GPUs.

‚ÄúBased on feed¬≠back and insights from glo¬≠bal gam¬≠ing com¬≠mu¬≠ni¬≠ties, gamers rank gra¬≠phics as the most cri¬≠ti¬≠cal com¬≠po¬≠nent for speed and per¬≠for¬≠mance,‚ÄĚ said John¬≠son Jia, seni¬≠or vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent and gene¬≠ral mana¬≠ger, Con¬≠su¬≠mer Busi¬≠ness of Intel¬≠li¬≠gent Devices Group, Leno¬≠vo. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs why the Leno¬≠vo Legi¬≠on‚ĄĘ T730 and T530 gam¬≠ing towers and the Ide¬≠a¬≠Cent¬≠re‚ĄĘ T540 Gam¬≠ing desk¬≠top pack in AMD‚Äôs latest Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX gra¬≠phics ‚Äď satis¬≠fy¬≠ing play¬≠ers‚Äô need for high-fide¬≠li¬≠ty visu¬≠als and light¬≠ning-fast frame¬≠ra¬≠tes to ful¬≠ly immer¬≠se into their gameplay.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúMSI Alpha 15 is a new chap¬≠ter for us, and we‚Äô¬≠re exci¬≠ted to part¬≠ner with AMD to com¬≠bi¬≠ne the latest 7nm tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy found in the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500M GPU and MSI‚Äôs gam¬≠ing DNA for our gamers,‚ÄĚ said Charles Chiang, CEO of MSI.

With the newest addi¬≠ti¬≠ons to the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ fami¬≠ly, AMD is brin¬≠ging its advan¬≠ced RDNA gam¬≠ing archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re and indus¬≠try-lea¬≠ding 7nm pro¬≠cess tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy to legi¬≠ons of main¬≠stream gamers world¬≠wi¬≠de in exci¬≠ting new form fac¬≠tors and sys¬≠tems. Powered by RDNA, the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 pro¬≠vi¬≠des up to 1.6X hig¬≠her gam¬≠ing per¬≠for¬≠mance-per-watt than cur¬≠rent Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ gra¬≠phics cards based on the Gra¬≠phics Core Next (GCN) archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re3.

The AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series was built from the ground up to deli¬≠ver incre¬≠di¬≠ble 1080p gam¬≠ing, high-fide¬≠li¬≠ty visu¬≠als and ultra-respon¬≠si¬≠ve game¬≠play. Opti¬≠mi¬≠zed to deli¬≠ver incre¬≠di¬≠ble expe¬≠ri¬≠en¬≠ces on the hot¬≠test games, the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 gra¬≠phics card pro¬≠vi¬≠des up to 37 per¬≠cent fas¬≠ter per¬≠for¬≠mance on avera¬≠ge than the com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠ti¬≠ve pro¬≠duct in sel¬≠ect titles at 1080p1. For mobi¬≠le gam¬≠ing, a lap¬≠top con¬≠fi¬≠gu¬≠red with the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500M GPU pro¬≠vi¬≠des up to 30 per¬≠cent fas¬≠ter per¬≠for¬≠mance on avera¬≠ge than the com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠ti¬≠on, and deli¬≠vers up to 60+ FPS in sel¬≠ect AAA titles and up to 90+ FPS in sel¬≠ect eSports games4.

‚ÄúIt‚Äôs been incre¬≠di¬≠ble to see the respon¬≠se to our RDNA archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re from gamers world¬≠wi¬≠de, and now we‚Äôre brin¬≠ging the same high-frame¬≠ra¬≠te, dyna¬≠mic game¬≠play and advan¬≠ced fea¬≠tures to 1080p gam¬≠ing with the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series,‚ÄĚ said Scott Her¬≠kel¬≠man, cor¬≠po¬≠ra¬≠te vice pre¬≠si¬≠dent and gene¬≠ral mana¬≠ger, Rade¬≠on Tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gies Group at AMD. ‚ÄúAMD is com¬≠mit¬≠ted to deli¬≠ve¬≠ring incre¬≠di¬≠ble gam¬≠ing expe¬≠ri¬≠en¬≠ces to all gamers across all pri¬≠ce-points. Whe¬≠ther fight¬≠ing the Calyp¬≠so twins in Bor¬≠der¬≠lands 3 or batt¬≠ling to take back Auroa in Tom Clancy‚Äôs Ghost Recon¬ģ Break¬≠point, the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series allows every gamer to feel ful¬≠ly immer¬≠sed and lose them¬≠sel¬≠ves in the¬≠se beau¬≠tiful and com¬≠plex worlds.‚ÄĚ

Built on indus¬≠try-lea¬≠ding 7nm pro¬≠cess tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy and sup¬≠port¬≠ing high-band¬≠width PCIe¬ģ 4.0 tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy, the new AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ pro¬≠ducts take advan¬≠ta¬≠ge of powerful fea¬≠tures to bring 1080p game¬≠play to the next level, including:

 

    •  
    • Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Image Shar¬≠pe¬≠ning (RIS)5 ‚Äď Brings cris¬≠pness and cla¬≠ri¬≠ty to in-game visu¬≠als that have been sof¬≠ten¬≠ed by ups¬≠ca¬≠ling and post-pro¬≠cess effects in DirectX¬ģ 9, 12 and Vul¬≠kan¬ģ titles. When pai¬≠red with Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ GPU ups¬≠ca¬≠ling, RIS enables sharp visu¬≠als and flu¬≠id frame rates on high-reso¬≠lu¬≠ti¬≠on displays.

 

    • AMD Fide¬≠li¬≠ty¬≠FX ‚Äď Offers an open-source tool¬≠kit for game deve¬≠lo¬≠pers to add high-qua¬≠li¬≠ty post-pro¬≠cess effects to help make games look beau¬≠tiful while offe¬≠ring the opti¬≠mal balan¬≠ce of visu¬≠al fide¬≠li¬≠ty and per¬≠for¬≠mance. Available on GPUO¬≠pen, Fide¬≠li¬≠ty¬≠FX fea¬≠tures Con¬≠trast-Adap¬≠ti¬≠ve Shar¬≠pe¬≠ning (CAS), which draws out detail in low-con¬≠trast are¬≠as while mini¬≠mi¬≠zing arti¬≠facts cau¬≠sed by typi¬≠cal image shar¬≠pe¬≠ning routines.

 

    • Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ Anti-Lag6 ‚Äď Anti-Lag signi¬≠fi¬≠cant¬≠ly decrea¬≠ses input-to-dis¬≠play respon¬≠se times, inclu¬≠ding making Bor¬≠der¬≠lands 3 up to 23 per¬≠cent more respon¬≠si¬≠ve7 with Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 5500 series gra¬≠phics and offe¬≠ring a com¬≠pe¬≠ti¬≠ti¬≠ve edge in gameplay.
