AMD has launched the AMD RX 5300 graphics cards that are meant for the entry-level 1080p gaming market segment. This seems to be an OEM only model that has the same number of stream processors as the RX 5500 XT (1408). It also has the same D332 board design.
Talking about the specifications fo the newly launched AMD RX 5300. The graphics cards feature 3GB of GDDR6 memory and a 96-bit memory bus which is pretty odd. The memory runs at 14 Gbps and has a bandwidth of 168 GB/s which makes it 25% slower than the RX 5500 XT.
We do not have any third-party performance benchmarks of the AMD RX 5300 but AMD did post some benchmarks and you can check them out below:
If these numbers are indeed accurate then the AMD RX 5300 is going to be a great entry-level graphics card that provides decent performance at 1080p in pretty much any modern title. From what we can see here, the AMD RX 5300 is able to beat the Nvidia GTX 1650 which is also a very popular entry-level graphics card.
Pricing of the card has not been revealed yet but keeping in mind that you can buy the Radeon RX 5500 XT 4 GB for $169, the AMD RX 5300 is going to be cheaper and it is safe to assume that it is going to cost less than $150 US. T
he budget graphics card is going to need a single 8-pin power connector for juice. Which should make it ideal for budget builds.
For display output, you get HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4. The graphics card supports AMD Freessync support, Direct X 12 and Vulkan API. Other specifications are as follows:
- 22 Compute Units
- Up to 1645 MHz Boost Frequency
- Up to 1448 MHz Game Frequency
- 52.6 GP/s Peak Pixel Fill-Rate
- 144.8 GT/s Peak Texture Fill-Rate
- 9.26 TFLOPs Peak Half Precision Compute Performance
- 4.63 TFLOPs Peak Single Precision Compute Performance –
- 32 ROPs
- 1408 Stream Processors
- 6.4 B Transistor Count
Let us know what you think about this new addition to the AMD Radeon family of graphics cards and whether or not this is something that you might be interested in buying for a budget build.
