Product information - Radeon RX 550 2G, 2048 MB GDDR5With the introduction of the Radeon RX 550 AMD presents a value-oriented entry-level graphics card which is particularly economical in terms of power usage, offers a good selection of ports and provides good performance for eSport titles like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, DOTA 2, Overwatch or League of Legends. All of the aforementioned titles will run smoothly at high details and in Full HD resolution (1.920×1.080P). Based on AMD's 4th generation GCN architecture and manufactured in the efficient 14 nm process the Polaris 12 GPU of the Radeon RX 550 has a very low TDP of just 50 Watts. Paired with a FreeSync monitor it is possible to not only save on the graphics card, but also on the monitor as well. Price-conscious gamers will be absolutely satisfied with the price-to-performance ratio of the RX 550.
The Features of the Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 2G
- Efficient single-fan cooler design
- 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM
- 1.195 MHz boost clock
- 3.500 MHz (7.000 MHz boost clock) memory frequency
- Power supplied PCIe-Slot
Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 with Single-Fan Cooler DesignThe efficient Polaris 12 GPU of the Radeon RX 550 contains 8 Compute Units with a total of 512 Shader Units. The GPU of the Radeon RX 550 2G from Gigabyte is clocked with an average boost clock of 1.195 MHz. The 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM is clocked at 3.500 MHz (7.000 MHz), and is connected to the GPU via a 128-Bit interface and promises solid performance.
The custom cooler design from Gigabyte is based on a large, semi-passive single-fan cooler which transfers the heat away from teh overclocked Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 2G highly effectively. Power is supplied to the card directly from the PCIe slot, thereby removing the need for a dedicated power supply.
14 nm FinFET and GCN 4.0: The AMD Radeon RX 550Thanks to the efficient 14 nm FinFET manufacturing process and extensive progress made in CPU control, power saving, and clock rate technologies, the Radeon RX 550 succeeds in delivering impressive performance with a very low TDP of just 500 Watts. The reason behind this is the development of 14 nm technology which enabled the inclusion of more transistors on a smaller die area, while simultaneously reducing energy requirements.
The 4th-gen Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 1.3) introduces features such as a command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimised display engine as well as an improved memory controller. Some of the supported technologies include Async Compute, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync technology.
Monitors can be connected to the graphics card via DVI-D, Display-Port or HDMI. EyeFinity technology enables up to four monitors to be connected in a multi-display setup. The HDMI connector utilises HDMI 2.0b to allow playback of 4K/UHD resolution multimedia at 60 Hz and offers HDCP 2.2 for sending and receiving encrypted signals.
In order for the card to reach its maximum potential, new drivers should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals from the AMD or Gigabyte websites.
