Radeon RX 5300 XT i čipset AMD B550 dolaze u OEM sustave u listopadu

HP has listed new desktop consumer prebuilts that use previously unannounced hardware from AMD, namely the Radeon RX 5300 XT graphics card and the B550 chipset. B550 has been expected for a while - it's a lower-cost chipset for Ryzen 3000 'Zen 2' processors with reduced feature set. HP calls the chipset 'AMD Promontory B550A' in their sheets which seems to be designed and produced by ASMedia (unlike X570, which is a fully AMD in-house design). One of the major differences between X570 and B550 is that the latter has no support for PCI-Express 4.0, which won't matter one bit in its target segment. This move not only reduces chipset cost, it also drives down the cost of motherboards significantly, as the more stringent signal integrity requirements for PCIe 4.0 won't apply here.

Dok smo čuli glasine da AMD radi na manjem čipu za njihovu 'Navi' arhitekturu (Navi 12 i Navi 14), neizvjesno je da li se RX 5300 XT doista temelji na Navi, ili će to biti još jedan rebrand - ne bismo Neću biti iznenađen ako se Polaris još jednom vrati. Oba su sustava navedena po 699 i 899 eura, a dostupnost polica očekuje se 8. listopada.
