In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500M 4GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M.

The RX 5500M has a 564 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 770M. This results in the RX 5500M providing 56.1 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 5500M has a 564 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 770M. This results in the RX 5500M providing 24.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 5500M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 770M, and so the RX 5500M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 770M when running the latest games.

The RX 5500M has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 770M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 770M has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 770M has 96.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500M, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 770M is massively better than the RX 5500M.

The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770M has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500M is 1506 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770M is 779. The RX 5500M having 727 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5500M delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 770M.

The RX 5500M transistor size technology is 21 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 770M. This means that the RX 5500M is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 770M.

The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB requires 85 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770M requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 5500M. The RX 5500M requires 10 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 770M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RX 5500M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 770M.

GPU Mini Review

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

It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1408 shader processing units, 88 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

The central unit runs at 1375 MHz and goes up to 1645 MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

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

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 85W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

The Radeon RX 5500M 4GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070M. 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 Radeon RX 5500M 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 5500M 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 5500M 4GB.
GeForce GTX 770M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Kepler GK106-N14E-GS-A1 which has 5 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 960 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 811MHz.

The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.

GeForce GTX 770M is essentially a fast GeForce GTX 675MX.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly better than the older GeForce GTX 675MX.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Powerful Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 770M.
