In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5500 4GB.

The RX 5500 has a 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5700 XT, but the RX 5700 XT has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 5500. As a result, the RX 5700 XT exhibits a 43 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the RX 5500. 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 65 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5700 XT, but the RX 5700 XT has 32 more Render Output Units than the RX 5500. As a result, the RX 5700 XT exhibits a 49.3 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 less than a year after the RX 5700 XT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance 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 RX 5700 XT 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 RX 5700 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5700 XT has 224 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5700 XT is massively better than the RX 5500.

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB has 2560. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the RX 5700 XT is 3170. The RX 5700 XT having 1481 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5700 XT delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 5500.

The Radeon RX 5500 4GB requires 110 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB requires 225 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 5500 and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 5700 XT. The RX 5700 XT requires 115 Watts more than the RX 5500 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 5700 XT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 5500.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5500 4GB is an entry-level graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series, announced on October 7th, 2019.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1408 shader processing units, [xx] TMUs and [xx]] ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1670 MHz and goes up to 1845 MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX 5500 4GB comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR6 video memory through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 110W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
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 Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the first (1.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.

Architecture
The Navi 10 XL GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5. This variant of the Navi 10 XL GPU features 40 Compute Units activated, offering 2560 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1605 MHz base clock speed and up to 1905 MHz with boost clock, making it an estimated 15% faster than a Radeon RX Vega 64. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 2080.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1605 MHz, rising to 1905 MHz with boost clock enabled.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 225W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 8+6-pin connector.

Performance
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, which is available for $599.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 2070.
System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
