more Based on 7,791 user benchmarks.  Devices: 1002 699F, 1002 67FF Models: Radeon RX 550, Radeon(TM) RX 550, AMD Radeon(TM) RX550, Radeon (TM) RX 550, ASUS Radeon RX 550

Hot on the heels of the release of the Radeon RX 580 and RX 570 launched earlier this week, AMD have released a new Polaris 12 GPU, the Radeon RX 550. It is a sub-$100 entry level GPU, targeted at those who want an inexpensive, low profile, low power and low performance component for mini desktop PCs or a minor upgrade on integrated GPUs. It has just 8 compute units, a boost clock of 1183 MHz and comes with either 2 or 4 Gb of GDDR5 memory capable of delivering up to 112 GB/s bandwidth. As expected from a discrete GPU, the RX 550 wipes the floor with Intel’s current best desktop iGPU (HD 630 (Kaby Lake). The RX 550 is expected to be around 70% as fast as the only $20 dearer RX 560 (the successor to the RX 460 to be released next month), however this should be sufficient for an okay gaming experience for many games on non-demanding settings. It is anticipated, that AMD will tailor the form of the 550 more towards the laptop market as the year progresses. [Apr '17 GPUPro]

Very poor average bench

The AMD RX 550 averaged 79.0% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

Strengths

Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 50fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 45.3fps

Excellent consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD RX 550 is just 5.82%. This is an extremely narrow range which indicates that the AMD RX 550 performs superbly consistently under varying real world conditions.

Weaknesses

Avg. High dynamic range lighting (Teapot) 76.1fps
Avg. Parallax occlusion mapping (Stones) 68fps

a no ser que seas un obsesionado con 200000 fps que no vas a tener en tu puta vida a no ser que te gastes un buen pastizal en el monitor(pero para comprarte un monitor de la puta comprate una gtx 1080 y monitor normal)

It is currently the best budget Graphics card for lower-end eSports games such as Cs-Go and League of Legends. Despite this, it still runs quite well on heavier games like PUBG, as a user of this graphics card I have reached up to 60 fps (with the lowest settings and a really strong processor that is) in PUBG.

Cheaper, less heat, and still a budget gaming option

OC editions can clock up to 1400Mhz and higher with no side effects making this a far better budget contender than the specs suggest.
