Asus launches its Radeon RX 5500 XT series cards

Asus has announced its new range of Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics cards, the company has launched two versions from the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT series which include the ROG Strix Radeon RX 5500 XT and the Asus Dual Radeon RX 5500 XT.

The announcement from Asus comes as other graphics card manufacturers are rolling out their own versions of the new AMD Radeon RX 5500XT GPU to offer budget PC gamers a host of options at the lower end of the graphics card market. We already have reviews out on a couple of the new Radeon RX 5500 XT cards for you to check out how they perform.

Just like every other AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT cards, the two new variants from Asus are based on AMD’s 7nm RDNA architecture and feature GDDR6 VRAM, to offer a solid budget option for 1080p gaming. The slight boost in performance over reference cards means the Asus RX 5500 XT is prepared to deliver impressive framerates in modern AAA titles.

The Asus ROG Strix RX 5500 XT has components precisely soldered to the PCB using Auto-Extreme technology, with two powerful fans deployed via the Asus Axial-tech design that surpasses the company’s own fan design from previous generations. Other key features of the ROG Strix Radeon RX 5500XT includes a  zero dB running mode, IPX5 dust resistance and a protective backplate.

Even further down the budget gaming price spectrum sits the Asus Dual Radeon RX 5500 XT EVO, offering a blend of simplicity and performance. The Dual Radeon RX 5500 XT is also built using Auto-Extreme technology, with Axial-tech fans and IPX5 dust resistance to keep the card running cool and clean. Asus claims the Dual Radeon RX 5500 XT EVO is the ideal candidate to provide a powerful plug and play gaming experience.

Both new Radeon RX 5500 XT cards from Asus are available worldwide now, the Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 5500XT O8G has an SRP of £247.99 while the Asus Dual Radeon RX 5500 XT EVO O8G is priced a little lower at £209.99. A 4GB version of the Asus Dual Radeon RX 5500 XT is also available too.
