VideoCardz reports the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT will not bring much new to the table. It appears this card will have 1408 stream processors, which means it's just an overclocked version of the OEM-only Radeon RX 5500. The Radeon RX 5500 XT is expected to launch on December 12.
The non-XT variant, tested by our colleagues at, and, are OEM variants that will not be available in the retail channels. These cards were made for the pre-build PC market (and that’s where these review samples came from). The 5500 XT is basically the same card but with more memory (8GB is optional) and only for the board partners.

The only graphics card with Navi 14 GPU onboard featuring full 1536 Stream Processors will be Radeon Pro 5500M (exclusively for Apple systems).
Interestingly, VideoCardz claims the pricing of the card is still unknown because AMD hasn't finalized it yet. Sources at AMD's board partners told the site that the pricing proposed by AMD was simply too high.
