The RX570 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 [xx]W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
The Radeon RX 5500 8GB been built as a Low/Mid performance graphics card for 2019. 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 5300 XT 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p.
