The performance numbers in the GN video just look like they took a 580/590 and slapped a 5500 sticker on it for roughly the same price. The real "choice" might be finding Polaris cards in the closeout bin sometime next year?
I guess the main feature is that it knocks about 80-100W off of the power consumption vs the Rx 580/590, with the sacrifice of a bit lower performance? I'm just having a hard time overcoming my initial expectation that they'd make the 5500 XT at least 10% faster than the 590.
