This isn't a direct comparison as I'm only using a reference AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card versus the custom SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 5500 XT PULSE OC graphics card and its custom Dual-X cooling solution. Still, for reference you can see how hot the Polaris 10-based Radeon RX 480 gets in reference form.

Power Consumption

Power has been tightened on Radeon RX 5500 XT, with the custom overclocked solution using 180W total in my Core i7-8700K, while the reference Radeon RX 480 uses 210W. A custom Radeon RX 480 would use more power, something I think I need to get my hands-on.
