Navi Disclosure Agreement?

TechPowerUp posted a surprising review, of AMD’s not yet released Navi based Radeon RX 5500 and you can see it here.  It is positioned to replace the Radeon RX 570 and RX 580, so you should expect an MSRP between $100-$200 which will likely be modified based on the new GTX 1650 Super which was released today, with a $150 price tag. 

In their testing we see a lot of variance, with the card having issues with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey but performing admirably in Metro Exodus.  Overall the card pretty much matches the GTX 1650 Super, with NVIDIA’s new card tending to perform a few percent better.  On the other hand, Navi’s 7nm design means it is less power hungry and produces less heat than it’s rival, not to mention less than the RX 570 or 580 which should be considered.

The RX 5500 Navi is AMD's ambitious attempt to disrupt the sub-$200 graphics card market just as the RX 5700 series did to the sub-$400 market, bringing in much needed competition. It won't be easy, as NVIDIA tried to preempt it with the GTX 1650 Super and GTX 1660 Super.
