AMD Radeon 5500 brings a secret weapon to the GPU midrange

Today, AMD announced the Radeon RX 550 line of GPUs for both laptops and desktops. While AMD gets a lot of attention for its high-end cards, these new GPUs are decidedly mid-range, boasting support for resolutions up to 1080p and framerates that fall between 60 and 90 FPS depending on the game. While you won't be running new triple-A titles at 4K with these graphics cards, not everyone needs that enthusiast-level hardware.

Samsung phones with AMD Radeon graphics might be here in two years

Samsung's own Exynos chips have been able to hold its own in the mobile silicon world but, with the entry of Apple into the race and Huawei's more aggressive push, it needs to do more than just "OK". Not only does it need to perform just as well or even better while keeping power consumption low, Samsung also needs an edge that its competitors don't or can't have. That edge is the partnership he signed with AMD for the Radeon graphics technology, a partnership that may finally bear its fruit in 2021.
