AMD 's new mainstream graphics cards and mobile GPUs will be coming to midpriced gaming systems just in time for the holiday shopping season. The Radeon RX 5500 and 5500M are based on the same Navi 7nm architecture as the higher-end RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT. They'll go head-to-head with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 and 1650 in systems designed for fast 1080p gaming. They roughly replace the Radeon RX 570/580 in the lineup.

It has 4GB of GDDR6 memory (compared to 8GB for the desktop GPU) as well as a lower clock speed, so expect accordingly slower performance.

There will be cards from third parties by the end of the year -- from Asus , Gigabyte, MSI, Sapphire, XFX and the rest of the usual suspects -- but AMD really sees the GPUs being used in for preconfigured systems. In November they'll debut in an HP Omen Obelisk and Pavilion line, Lenovo Legion T530 and IdeaCentre T540. An Acer Nitro 50 is also slated for December.
