AMD Radeon Pro W5500 Workstation Graphics Card

With a price tag of only $391.57 … it’s a real steal!

Taken from Tom’s Hardware  … Coming as no surprise, AMD is seemingly preparing another workstation-class graphics card based on the Navi microarchitecture. As spotted by a hardware leaker known as @momomo_us on Twitter, U.S. retailer SabrePC has already listed the upcoming AMD Radeon Pro W5500 (100-506095 part number), even though AMD hasn’t made any official announcement yet.

Judging from the model name alone, we expect this pro card to carry most of the same specs as the Radeon RX 5500 XT. The Radeon Pro W5500 will likely utilize a variation of the 7nm Navi 14 die and, therefore, the graphics card should have 1,408 Stream Processors (SPs) at its disposal.

The Radeon Pro W5500 seemingly comes with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Although, SabrePC doesn’t specify the memory speed, it’s probably running at 14 Gbps across a 128-bit memory interface, just like the AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT. If that’s the case, then the Radeon Pro W5500 should be able to provide a similar memory bandwidth of up to 224 GBps.

According to SabrePC’s listing, the Radeon Pro W5500 comes with four DisplayPort outputs, one less than the Radeon Pro W5700. It’s not stated, but the outputs are likely Mini DisplayPort 1.4 connectors. However, there is no mention of a USB-C port, which is present on the Radeon Pro W5700.

SabrePC lists the Radeon Pro W5500 with a $391.57 price tag; however, that  price could be a placeholder. If it is accurate, the Radeon Pro W5500 will be a competitor to Nvidia’s Quadro P2200 that retails for around $400.
