AMD Announces Radeon RX 5300M and Radeon Pro 5000M Series

AMD recently announced two new Navi 14 graphics cards for gamers and professional users. 

The Navi 14 is a 7nm GPU that has 24 Compute Units. The mobile series will likely end up with 22 CUs at maximum, whereas the Radeon Pro 5000M will be the first to feature Navi 13 with 24 CUs enabled. 

AMD has prepared the Radeon Pro 5500M and the 5300M for Macbook Pro users. According to AMD’s website, their Radeon Pro 5000M Series is for those looking for want to be more “productive in the office or on the go”.

This new SKU also features lower memory, a 3GB GDDR6 memory in comparison to the 4GB contained in the RX 5500M SKU. Another key difference is that this SKU has a narrower bus of 96-bit too. 

AMD Radeon Pro 5000M

The AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series is built in a way that’s ideal for 3D content creation and video editing.

Key features of this chip include using 7nm technology with faster, smaller and lower power transistors, GDDR6 memory,  RDNA and optimized Metal support for content creators. 

When compared to the Radeon RX, the Radeon Pro will feature a slower GDDR6 memory, with just 12 Gbps compared to 14 Gbps. There is also a slower clock speed, with 1250 MHz boost clocks compared to 1300 MHz. 

AMD said: “AMD Radeon™ Pro 5000M series mobile GPUs are built upon the all-new AMD RDNA architecture, designed from the ground up for superior performance, scalability and power efficiency.”
