AMD silently launches RX 5300 for 1080p gaming

AMD has quietly introduced another budget-gaming graphics card in their RX lineup: the AMD Radeon RX 5300.  Positioned as an entry-level card, the RX 5300 promises better gaming performance at 1080p.

The AMD Radeon RX 5300 shares the same Navi 14 GPU core as the RX 5500 XT, both of which are situated as an entry-level solution for gamers. The RX 5300, however, comes with lower clock speeds at a boost clock of around 1645MHz. Memory has been cut down to 3GB while its bandwidth has been limited to 96-bit.

AMD is pitting the RX 5300 against NVIDIA’s GTX 1650. The brand claims that it can outperform NVIDIA’s GPU against games such as Battlefield 5, Monster Hunter World, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
