AMD Radeon HD 6550A: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon HD 6550A

Summary

AMD started Radeon HD 6550A sales 7 February 2011. This is TeraScale 2 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 2 GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1.8 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 28.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is MXM Module card attached via MXM-A (3.0) interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 35 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.45 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
