Experienced gamers avoid AMD for a reason... A bus company with drunk drivers can’t win long term users with paid reviews.

Good enough for the price (225 euros in my case)

Wait, my Radeon AMD RX 5500-XT has 2 fans. What's with this single fan???

Too expensive for the performance you get. Terrible value if you're looking to upgrade from a Polaris card.

My rx 5500 has more fans therefore i think that its better than the gtx 1650 super. Rx 5500 is quite amazing

Judging by the benchmark scores, this GPU may or may not be an overclocked or little bigger cousin of the original RX 5500.

Filled with driver issues, and the 8GB model is similar to a 1660, nearly 1660S in price!

Got the 8gb vram variant for Christmas as an upgrade to my Quadro k620. In that matter its amazing and has made gaming much more enjoyable. but against things like the rtx 2080 it would get crushed and it doesn't do very well with splatting (49 fps avg.). It makes sense as when it launched it was made for more of a cheaper gaming rig. The msrp for the 4gb vram variant was $170 and the 8gb was $220 but with the shortage of chips it rose to $700 at the time of writing this. Not worth the price anymore but if you got one before prices increased you got yourself a pretty good gpu

AMD's new 1080p GPU, the RX 5500 XT, comes with two versions: 4GB and 8GB. The 4GB model is retailed at $169, and the 8GB model for $229, respectively. Supposedly, it rivals against NVIDIA's GTX 1650 Super, which retails at $159. According to benchmarks, the GTX 1650 Super and the RX 5500 XT have relatively the same performance, but more user samples are needed to get an accurate comparison. Price-wise, the GTX 1650 Super is a much more better value than the RX 5500 XT. However, Polaris cards are still being sold by retailers and have a much lower price than the GTX 1650 Super and the RX 5500 XT. For starters, getting an RX 590 for 8GB VRAM and an RX 580 is a better value if you can find one cheaper than the GTX 1650 Super; if not, then the GTX 1650 Super. Unfortunately, despite it being a low power-consumption GPU, the GTX 1650 Super beats it in terms of power consumption. I was astonished when AMD released their RX 5700 series in the market, but I was disappointed when their RX 5500 series was released.
