Čipová sada Radeon RX 5300 XT a AMD B550 prichádza do OEM systémov v októbri


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.

Aj keď sme počuli zvesti, že AMD pracuje na menšom čipe pre svoju architektúru „Navi“ (Navi 12 a Navi 14), nie je isté, či je RX 5300 XT skutočne založený na Navi, alebo či to bude ešte ďalšie rebrandovanie - my by sme Nebudem prekvapený, keď Polaris opäť urobí comeback. Oba systémy sú kótované za 699 EUR a 899 EUR, pričom dostupnosť police sa očakáva na 8. októbra.
