In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5500 4GB.

The RX 5500 has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed but 16 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2070. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the RX 5500 manages to provide 10.8 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 260 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2070, but the RTX 2070 has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 5500. As a result, the RTX 2070 exhibits a 36.8 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 RTX 2070, 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 RTX 2070.

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 RTX 2070 has 4096 MB more video memory than the RX 5500, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2070 has 224 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2070 is massively better than the RX 5500.

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB has 2304. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2070 is 4216. The RTX 2070 having 2527 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5500.

The RX 5500 transistor size technology is 5 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RTX 2070. This means that the RX 5500 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RTX 2070.

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB requires 110 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB requires 225 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 5500 and a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the RTX 2070. The RTX 2070 requires 115 Watts more than the RX 5500 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 5500.

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super. 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 RX 5500 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 5500 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 5500 4GB.
Overview The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the 12nm Turing Architecture and is considered a great 1440p video card. This is a dual-slot graphics card with a dual-fan thermal design using TORX 3.0 fans for improved airflow and optimised heat dissipation. This video card uses Zero Frozr to eliminate fan noise in low-load situations, and also has RGB Mystic Light lighting, and anti-bending backplate. This video card has great overclocking potential. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed TU106, more specifically the TU106-400A-A1 variant which means factory overclocks are permitted. This is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing (RTX) technology. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes and 32 RT Cores for ray-tracing. GPU The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1830 MHz in Boost Mode, providing a large 13% overclock when compared to the reference model. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 225W, it requires at least a 550W PSU with one available 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector. Performance The GeForce RTX 2070 offers performance in between the GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, albeit also boasting ray-tracing and DLSS support. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 2070 MSI Gaming Z 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.
