AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Navi GPUs Rumored For October 7th Launch To Attack GTX Turing

Gigabyte Radeon RX 5700
It appears as though AMD is getting ready flesh out its Navi lineup with another SKU, the Radeon RX 5500 XT. According to leaked information, AMD will soon announce both desktop and mobile variants of the new part, which will primarily compete against NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1650 in the mid-range graphics card market.

Bearing in mind that none of this is official, it is said the Radeon RX 5500 XT will feature a Navi 14 GPU. If the leaked information is accurate, it will have 1,408 stream processors paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory, albeit on a 128-bit bus. This would essentially make it a replacement to the Radeon RX 560 in the mid-range segment. Here's how the two compare...
  • Radeon RX 5500 XT: 1,408 stream processors, 8GB GDDR6, 128-bit
  • Radeon RX 560: 1,024 stream processors, 4GB/2GB GDDR5, 128-bit
For reference, the Radeon RX 560 sports a 1,175MHz base clock and 1,275MHz boost clock. It's not clear what the clocks would be on the Radeon RX 5500.

Adding credibility to the leaked information, Gigabyte apparently submitted several Radeon RX 5500 XT SKUs to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). They include the following...
  • GV-R55XTGAMING OC-8GB
  • GV-R55XTWF2OC-8GD
  • GV-R55XTOC-8GD
  • GV-R55XTGAMING-8GD
  • GV-R55XTWF2-8GD
  • GV-R55XTD6-8GD
The listings at EEC seemingly confirm the Radeon RX 5500 XT will ship with 8GB of memory. And as is typically the case, Gigabyte (and others, presumably) will offer both stock and overclocked variants.

Incidentally, the EEC also now contains listings for a new GeForce GTX 1660 Super with 6GB, and a GeForce GTX 1650 Super with 4GB of memory, the latter of which might be what was previously rumored as a GeForce GTX 1650 Ti.

We'll keep you updated as new leaks and actual announcements emerge.
