AMD has launched the Radeon RX 5300 graphics card for the entry-level segment based on the same RDNA microarchitecture that powers their RX 5000 series including the RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 5600 XT, RX 5600 and RX 5500 XT. The Radeon RX 5300 is expected to be priced around INR 13000-15000 since it's supposed to compete against the NVIDIA GTX 1650 and its overclocked variants. The RX 5300 was launched silently without any fanfare and all we know comes from a product page on AMD's website. This is not the RX 5300M mobile variant that was launched in November 2019.

AMD Radeon RX 5300 graphics card specifications

The AMD RX 5300 graphics card has the same core configuration as the Radeon RX 5500 XT but features lower clock speeds and a narrower memory bus. It also ships with just 3GB of GDDR6 VRAM which is lesser than what the competing NVIDIA GTX 1650 ships with by 1 GB. However, the NVIDIA cards use GDDR5 memory whereas AMD uses GDDR6. the memory bandwidth of the 1650 GDDR5 variant is 128 GB/s whereas the RX 5300 has a memory bandwith of 168 GB/s. NVIDIA also launched a GDDR6 variant of the GTX 1650 earlier this year which has a memory bandwidth of 192 GB/s. The faster memory on the RX 5300 will help overcome the lower capacity, however, the extent of its impact can only be determined once the benchmarks are in.

AMD Radeon RX 5300 performance

AMD has put up a comparison on their website of the Radeon RX 5300 against the NVIDIA GTX 1650 in popular AAA video games such as Battlefield 5, Monster Hunter World, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and PUBG. All benchmarks run on the highest ingame preset at 1080p resolution shows the RX 5300 beating the GTX 1650 by a wide margin. The RX 5300 supposedly scored 86 FPS in Battlefield 5 (high), 69 FPS in Monster Hunter World (highest), 69 FPS in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (high) and 70 FPS in PUBG running on Ultra.

AMD Radeon RX 5300 graphics card price

AMD has not shared any official pricing for the RX 5300 nor have any partner cards arrived at Indian retail stores as of writing this. We expect the pricing to be between INR 13000 - 15000 based on the segment that the RX 5300 is competing in. Once we have a better idea of the performance, we will revise our estimates.
