Our Verdict: At 1440p, RX 5500 XT 4GB can hit 50-60 frames per second on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Whereas RTX 3050 Ti can hit 50-60 frames per second at maximum settings. The RTX 3050 Ti is faster by 56% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from RX 5500 XT 4GB to RTX 3050 Ti is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti

The RTX 3060 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest Ampere set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the RTX 3050 Ti is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 249. NVIDIA ’s xx50 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Ampere graphics card inside the RTX 3050 Ti, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Spec for spec, this RTX 3050 Ti leapfrogs its direct predecessor, the GTX 1650, by boasting 2 % more fps. The RTX 3050 Ti has 6 GB RAM compared to the GTX 1650 's 4 GB video memory.

In our synthetic benchmarks, the RTX 3050 Ti blows past the GTX 1650 and, amazingly, even the GTX 1660 as well. Fortunately, gaming performance was quite impressive. The RTX 3050 Ti consistently delivers great frame rate increases over the GTX 1650 and it really justifies an upgrade.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Borderlands 3, Anthem, Need For Speed: Heat, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Gears of War 5 at 64 fps to 81 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 74 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Monster Hunter: World, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, GreedFall, Hitman 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at 61 fps to 72 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 66 fps.

For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Valorant at 145 fps to 145 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 145 fps.

AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB

The RX 5700 might be the mid-range flagship of the latest RDNA 1.0 set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most entry-level PC gamers. On the other hand, the RX 5500 XT 4GB is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 169. AMD ’s xx00 cards have always been defined by entry-level prices with performance that knocks on the door of mid-range graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the RDNA 1.0 graphics card inside the RX 5500 XT 4GB, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the RX 5500 XT 4GB consistently delivers frame rate increases over the RX 570, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Apex Legends, F1 2019, Forza Horizon 4, Hitman 2 at 60 fps to 65 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 62 fps.

For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play World War Z, Battlefield V, Valorant at 61 fps to 108 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 78 fps. For 2160p 4K, we were able to play Valorant at 94 fps to 94 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 94 fps.
