The AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT has been listed online at Chinese retailer JD.com, this more or less confirms that AMD will be launching an “XT” variant of the SKU very soon (by December 12th according to these listings). These product pages do not list specifications or anything like that, but they do confirm that we will see custom non-reference designs from AMD’s add-in-board (AIB) partners, including 8GB variants.
Looking at the listings there are two cards from Sapphire, one from XFX, and one from Yeston. The 8GB variant of the 5500 XT starts at RMB ¥1,499 including taxes, which is about $212 USD. You can reserve a card now for ¥100 ($14) upfront, pre-orders start today and the cards will ship December 12th. And as you can see there are no actual photos of these cards yet.
