Average Bench: 22% (94th of 540)

Based on 3 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 699F Model: 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]

Poor: 21%Average: 22% Great: 24%

Very poor average bench

The AMD RX 550 averaged 78.0% 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. Render target array GShader (Sphere) 62.9fps
Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 56.9fps

Unknown consistency

There are too few samples to reasonably determine how consistently this GPU perfroms. This result should be interpreted with caution.

Weaknesses

Avg. High dynamic range lighting (Teapot) 80.5fps
Avg. NBody particle system (Galaxy) 47.6fps
