Average Bench: 50.1% (117th of 700)

Based on 2,907 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 743F Model: AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT

Whilst the drought in the GPU market continues, street prices for AMD cards are around 50% lower than comparable (based on headline average fps figures) Nvidia cards. Many experienced users simply have no interest in buying AMD cards, regardless of price. The combined market share for all of AMD’s RX 5000 and 6000 GPUs amongst PC gamers (Steam stats) is just 2.12% whilst Nvidia’s RTX 2060 alone accounts for 5.03%. AMD’s Neanderthal marketing tactics seem to have come back to haunt them. Their brazen domination of social media platforms including youtube and reddit resulted in millions of users purchasing sub standard products. Be wary of sponsored reviews with cherry picked games that showcase the wins and ignore the losses. Experienced gamers know all too well that headline average fps are worthless when they are accompanied with stutters, random crashes, excessive noise and a limited feature set. [Jan '22 GPUPro]

AMD should be embarrassed about this... unless the real reason for it's pitiful existence is so that team red cheerleaders can point at this and pretend to have an unbiased opinion worth listening to, in which case, it's a job well done!—Jan '22


AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it.—May '22

Not worth it as cards from 5 years ago preform better than this potato.—Jan '22

Literally just an rx 480 on 6nm, except it's priced the same as it was 6 years ago. Garbage for everything except strictly gaming, so this might be a good card for desperate gamers out there who need a gpu (not an upgrade!).—Jan '22

It's the best low budget card on the market one can buy new (it's the only one).

Brand new AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT, performing as a GTX 1650S, hoped to see better performance, the culture of work is excellent, temps also fine, but hurted for having only 4GB VRAM. For budget gamer playing 1080p it is good choice, but if you want strong GPU performance, avoid it. And I think that this card is slightly overpriced. For now, affordable as a new product assuming you got already PCIe 4.0 motherboard and CPU with Resizable Bar support. Otherwise, you won't be satisfied with this GPU for current price and it's crippled performance.

Short Review: My card doesn't even work, display drivers malfunction on Windows 10+11, Radeon Software makes it worse somehow Long Review: As someone with an OEM PC, I can't upgrade my 400w PSU since it's shaped rectangularly or fit most GPUs because the case is small, so I looked for a GPU that could possibly fit AND demand a lower amount of power. I thought this card would be my saving grace, as the performance is better than my older card as well (an OEM version of the RX 580 4GB, side note it performed more like a 570). Of course, though, this card was too good to be true. The display drivers are fudged up and I can't fix it with my minor technological skills so I gotta send this shyte back.—Apr '22

It reeks of OEM cards. Still really impressive what performance you can get with a shoestring as a memory bus.


15 months ago.

It's so bad that miners won't get it, and strong enough to run most games respectably, especially if you don't care about triple A games. Don't compare it to flagship cards, if only just for the price/performance vs what gpu scalpers want for stronger cards.

Sham product release, crafted to give AMD’s social media army a fake punch bag to beat on. The guys at AMD marketing must be on fire.

Horrible, according to this website, the 5500XT is 2% faster I know its not much this was supposed to be NEXT GEN HARDWARE (at the time.) worse failure than the rx 460.

Awful don't buy this card it's worst than cards released half a decade ago
