Based on 42 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]


Very poor average bench

The AMD RX 550 averaged 78.7% 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.


Avg. Render target array GShader (Sphere) 61.3fps
Avg. Locally-deformable PRT (Bat) 54.2fps

Excellent consistency

The range of scores (95th - 5th percentile) for the AMD RX 550 is just 3.99%. This is an extremely narrow range which indicates that the AMD RX 550 performs superbly consistently under varying real world conditions.
