AMD has quietly launched an entry-level GPU. The new GPU has come at a time when fans are eagerly waiting for the RDNA2 based GPUs. The Radeon RX 5300 sports similar specs to RX 5500T XT and will compete against NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1650. Let’s check out the specs, features, expected price, and availability of AMD Radeon RX 5300 GPU.
AMD Radeon RX 5300 Overview
Radeon RX 5300 comes with 1408 shader cores. The core configuration is similar to what we saw in the Radeon RX 5500. The cores can be boosted up to 1,645 MHz using AMD Game Rate (game clock speed @ 1448 MHz). It is based on AMD’s 7nm RDNA architecture.
However, compromises have been made in the memory department. It features 3GB of GDDR6 VRAM. It is 1GB less than what Radeon RX 5500 X is offering. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, which the company is comparing RX 5300 with, comes with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Compared to the RX 5500, AMD has narrowed the bus width to 96-bit. As a result, the memory bandwidth of RX 5300 maxes out as 168GBps. AMD has also reduced the power requirement. While the RX 5500 XT required 130W, the RX 5300 has a TDP of 100W. However, users still have to use an external power source.
