In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Sapphire Nitro+ SE 8GB are massively better than the Nvidia Riva TNT2 Pro.

The RX 5500 XT was released over three years more recently than the Riva TNT2 Pro, and so the RX 5500 XT is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Riva TNT2 Pro when running the latest games.

The RX 5500 XT has 8160 MB more video memory than the Riva TNT2 Pro, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 5500 XT also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 5500 XT has 253.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Riva TNT2 Pro, which means that the memory performance of the RX 5500 XT is massively better than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT Sapphire Nitro+ SE 8GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Riva TNT2 Pro has 2. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 5500 XT is 1689 and the actual shader performance of the Riva TNT2 Pro is 0. The RX 5500 XT having 1689 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 5500 XT delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Riva TNT2 Pro.

The Radeon RX 5500 XT Sapphire Nitro+ SE 8GB requires 135 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Riva TNT2 Pro. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 5500 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 5500 XT Sapphire Nitro+ SE 8GB is an entry-level graphics card which is part of the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series. It was announced on October 7th, 2019 and released on December 12th, 2019.

Architecture
It is powered by the 7nm Navi GPU, which has 1408 shader processing units, 88 TMUs and 32 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 an 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 135W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
The Radeon RX 5500 XT Sapphire Nitro+ SE 8GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. Its direct competitor is the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2020 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX 5500 XT 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 5500 XT Sapphire Nitro+ SE 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 5500 XT 8GB.
The RIVA TNT2 was a graphics processing unit manufactured by Nvidia starting in early 1999. The chip is codenamed "NV5" because it is the 5th graphics chip design by Nvidia, succeeding the RIVA TNT (NV4). RIVA is an acronym for Real-time Interactive Video and Animation accelerator. The "TNT" suffix refers to the chip's ability to work on two texels at once (TwiN Texel). Nvidia removed RIVA from the name later in the chip's lifetime.
