In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500 4GB are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon RX 5500M 8GB.

The RX 5500 has a 502 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RX 5500M. This results in the RX 5500 providing 64.3 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 502 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 5500M and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 5500 providing 16 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 5500 was released less than a year after the RX 5500M, 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 5500M 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 5500M also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5500M has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 5500, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5500M is noticeably better than the RX 5500.

Both the Radeon RX 5500M 8GB and the Radeon RX 5500 4GB have 1408 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the RX 5500 has 64.3 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate and 16 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate, but the RX 5500M has 32.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth. Overall, the RX 5500 has slightly better performance.

The Radeon RX 5500M 8GB requires 120 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 5500 4GB requires 110 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 5500M and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 5500. The RX 5500M requires 10 Watts more than the RX 5500 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 RX 5500.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5500M 8GB is an entry-level laptop graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series. It was 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 1717 MHz and goes up to 1845 MHz when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX 5500 XT comes with a 8GB 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 [xx]W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5500M 8GB 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 8GB 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 8GB 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 8GB.
