It's still a bit hard to judge how this card will rate as AMD hasn't communicated the official pricing yet, but it seems the value proposition will be quite good:
Overall, the RX 5500 is a solid entry in this market segment. Just its announcement was disruptive enough to force NVIDIA to change its plans and release new updated products. The Radeon RX 5500 reference design can definitely impress, so let's hope AMD figures out retail channel availability soon, and board partners can release their custom designs. Assuming pricing will end up at $150 or below, I'm giving this card "Recommended" and "Great Value".
