AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB/8GB review: Is the extra memory worth it?

By Koh Wanzi - 17 Jan 2020

Temperature & power consumption

Temperature and power consumption

The temperature measurements were obtained after running 40 loops of 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme's stress test and checking the peak sustained temperature. Similarly, the total system power consumption figures were read off a power meter during a run of Fire Strike Extreme.

Unfortunately, all the cards here use different coolers, so the temperature numbers can't really be taken as a fair comparison of how hot the chips are relative to each other. 

That aside, power consumption numbers are pretty decent, with lower idle power draw than the GeForce GTX 1660 and only slightly higher peak power numbers.
