AMD is currently at work on its next-gen of RDNA GPUs, also known as Big Navi. In the meantime, it looks like it had some more left to give in its first-gen RDNA lineup, as it has just unveiled its RX 5300 graphics card.
The RX 5300 is an entry-level offering featuring the same core as the RX 5500 XT. Based on the Navi 14 GPU, the card has 22 CUs, i.e. 1408 stream processors. It’s configured with a base clock of 1448 MHz and a boost of 1645 MHz. This takes it to a peak performance figure of 4.63 TFLOPs in comparison to the 5 TFLOPs that the RX 5500 XT offers.
The card features 3 GB of GDDR6 memory, with a speed of 14 Gbps per pin in a 96-bit bus, totaling up to 168 Gbps. The TBP is 100W with a single 8-pin connector. Connection options are HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4. The expected price is around $150. It is likely to be lower since this card is slotted below the RX 5500 XT, which costs $169.
