If you want to see how the RX 5500 XT holds up on Linux, Phoronix took a look (AMD doesn't send GOL anything). Looks like it holds up well against the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER. If you're after a reasonably good GPU, at a good price for some Linux 1080p gaming it looks like the Radeon RX 5500 XT is a pretty good choice if you're an AMD fan.
Makes sense to put out good cards for 1080p gaming, it's still the most widely used resolution. Valve's monthly Hardware Survey puts it at 64.63% and nothing else comes close. Our own user survey puts 1080p amongst Linux gamers at around 58.42% too.
