AMD Radeon RX 550 technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon RX 550

Summary

AMD started Radeon RX 550 sales 20 April 2017 at a recommended price of 79 USD. This is a GCN 4.0 architecture desktop card based on 14 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 112.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x8 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 145 mm. An additional None power connector is required, and power consumption is at 50 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 26.91 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
