In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500 4GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX Vega 11.

The RX 5500 has a 607 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX Vega. This results in the RX 5500 providing 111.8 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 5500 has a 607 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX Vega, but the RX Vega has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 5500. As a result, the RX Vega exhibits a 14.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the RX 5500. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

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

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB and the Radeon RX Vega 11 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RX Vega has 185.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the RX 5500.

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX Vega 11 has 1536. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 1188. The RX 5500 having 501 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5500 delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX Vega.

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

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB requires 110 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon RX Vega 11. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 5500 and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega. The RX 5500 has been recommended a PSU with 100 Watts more than the RX Vega. The difference is significant enough that the RX 5500 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX Vega.
