Radeon RX 5300 XT и AMD B550 чипсет идва към OEM системи през октомври



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.

Докато чухме слухове, че AMD работи върху по-малък чип за тяхната „Navi“ архитектура (Navi 12 и Navi 14), не е сигурно дали RX 5300 XT наистина е базиран на Navi, или дали това ще е още един ребренд - не бихме искали няма да се изненадате, ако Polaris се завръща отново. И двете системи са посочени за € 699 и € 899, като наличността на рафтовете се очаква за 8 октомври.
