RX 400 series vs RX 500 series, witch one is better?

I let you see this picture.....

Based on this picture, you can see that the RX 470 has more performance than the RX 550.

But the RX 550 is the latest RX GPU!!

So, witch one is better?!!

Basically, the 500 series is upgraded 400s', but the 550 is a new lower end addition.

The important numbers are the last 2 (60/70/80), the higher, the better in comparison.

Ryzen 5 5600x, B550 aorus pro ac, Hyper 212 black, 2 x 16gb F4-3200c16d kit, Aorus nvme gen4 1tb, Nitro+RX6900XT,

570 is the stronger 470
560 is the stronger 460
550 is a little weaker than the R7 360 - but uses way less power and can be better in DX12 or Vulkan Games

btw - if you have very low budget get a RX550 - if you have low budget get an 1050ti - if you have mid-range budget better stick to AMDs RX580 8G (and please DONT consider 1060 3G - only 1060 6G because of the lower core count)

ps if you add in an AOC G2460VQ6 for around 130€ (here in Europe) - you have FreeSync and a pretty cheap but pretty decent Gaming experience
pps if you choose the RX 580 8G you can take the AOC G2460PF - 144hz 1ms with FreeSync

PC: R7 2700X @4.1GHz + RX 580 4G (1500MHz/2000MHz CL16) + 32G DDR4-3200CL14 + 144hz 1ms FS P + 75hz 1ms FS
Laptop: R5 2500U @30W + RX 560X (1400MHz/1500MHz) + 16G DDR4-2400CL16 + 120Hz 3ms FS
