AMD RX 5500 XT 8GB Mining Overview – Maybe better options?

The RX 5500 XT is the lowest in class of the 5000 series AMD cards. I have one of these and managed to get 27.5 MH/s at a reasonable wattage.

Although, thinking about it I would probably have gone for the 5600 XT for better efficiency at this point.

Mining Hashrates – 5500 XT VS 5600 XT

Next, lets do a comparison to see what the 5500 XT can deliver vs the 5600 XT. These can change with mods to the card with RBE and MPT.

5500 XT

5600 XT

  • Ethereum (Ethash) 27 MH/s at 67 Watts System

  • 0.40 Hash per Watt (27/67)

  • A little more could be achieved with mod but nothing campared to the 5600XT

  • Ethereum (Ethash) 40 MH/s at 90 Watts System

  • 0.44 Hash Per Watt (40/90)

  • The above has per watt is conservative as you can further bios mod this card with More Power tool to achieve more
