AMD quietly unveils the Radeon RX 5300 3GB based on Navi 14

It looks like AMD isn’t quite done with its first-generation RDNA architecture yet, as it introduced the Radeon RX 5300 graphics card, an entry-level product aimed at budget gamers. The Radeon RX 5300 comes with the same graphics core as the Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics cards but will come with a lower price and simplified specs.

AMD Radeon RX 5300 enters the market ahead of the launch of RDNA 2 GPUs. However, AMD has confirmed that it will focus on the high-end segment in the RDNA 2 family first, so the launch of the Radeon RX 5300 may make sense – most likely, we’ll see no earlier than next year.

The AMD Radeon RX 5300 is equipped with a Navi 14 graphics processor. This is the same chip used in the Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics cards. The GPU consists of 22 CU or 1408 stream processors, which is also the same as the Radeon RX 5500 XT. The main differences lie in the clock speed and memory configuration.

AMD Radeon RX 5300 has an operating frequency of 1448 MHz and a peak frequency of 1645 MHz. This is, respectively, 18% and 12% lower compared to the Radeon RX 5500 XT. The GPU delivers 4.63 teraflops of peak computing performance versus 5 teraflops of the RX 5500 XT.

The graphics card also comes with GDDR6 memory reduced to 3GB versus 4GB for the RX 5500 XT. The GDDR6 memory runs at 14 Gbps, but since it has a stripped-down 96-bit bus, the bandwidth is reduced to 168 GB / s versus 224 GB / s for the RX 5500 XT. The TDP of the Radeon RX 5300 is 100W – 30W lower than the RX 5500 XT. The card has one 8-pin power connector.

Among the output, means are HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4. The accelerator supports current technologies like FreeSync, DirectX 12, and Vulkan API. When it comes to performance, AMD is positioning the Radeon RX 5300 as an entry-level 1080p card and pitting it against a factory overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650:

The card’s retail availability has yet to be announced, but given that the 4GB Radeon RX 5500 XT variant costs $ 169, the 3GB Radeon RX 5300 should be priced well below $ 150.
