There are a fair few new AMD cards on the market in the last few months, with just about every major brand pushing a new RX model to market. From the affordable RX 5500 series, the mid-range 5600 series and the slightly faster mid-range 5700 series. However, today we’ll be focusing on a new RX 5500 XT from Gigabyte. It’s designed to be a more affordable card, but since we’ve tested a couple of these before, it does has some strong competition from both MSI and Sapphire. How does it stack up? Let’s find out!

The card comes pretty well equipped, as do just about every other Gigabyte Windforce 3X equipped graphics cards. Gigabyte has been using this cooler design for so long that it’s rumoured to have been built by the Romans. That being said, we know it’s robust, we know the design is decent, and we know that Gigabyte can keep the price down and a strong warranty. So while they’ll change the design slower than the Porche 911, they know that if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.
