VideoCardz picked up news that AMD's Radeon RX 5500 will be released on October 7. This model is believed to be based on the 7nm Navi 14 GPU, with 1408 shaders, a 128-bit memory bus and 4 to 8GB GDDR6 memory.

AMD reported had a conference call with journalists to provide details (under NDA) about this upcoming launch.
The interesting piece of information is about the memory, although unconfirmed, we have heard that RX 5500 may offer up to 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Unfortunately, this is still tied with a 128-bit bus, so the bandwidth increase will come from a higher frequency, not the width of the bus itself.

According to our information, the RX 5500 series will indeed feature 22 Compute Units, which translates into 1408 Stream Processors. This was earlier reported by Wccftech. This would mean that RX 5500 is to feature the same core count as GTX 1660 Ti.
Mobile versions of the Radeon RX 5500 are expected later this year.
