Based on AMD's fourth-generation GCN architecture and built in the efficient 14-nm FinFET process, the Radeon RX 550's Polaris 12 GPUs work with a very low TDP of only 50 watts. In conjunction with a FreeSync monitor, you can save money not only with the graphics card but also with the corresponding output device. Above all, price-conscious gamers will be absolutely satisfied with the excellent price / performance ratio of the RX 550.
The features of the Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 2G
Efficient single-fan cooler design
2GB GDDR5 video RAM
1.195 MHz boost clock
3,500 MHz (effectively 7,000 MHz) memory clock
Power supply via PCIe slot
Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 with single-fan cooler design
The Radeon RX 550's efficient Polaris 12 graphics chip contains 8 compute units with a total of 512 shader units. The GPU of the Radeon RX 550 2G of Gigabyte clocks thereby in the boost clock with an average of 1.195 MHz. The 2GB GDDR5 video memory clocks 3,500 MHz (7,000 MHz), is connected to the GPU (graphics chip) with a 128-bit memory interface and promises solid performance.
The Gigabyte Custom-designed cooler design is based on a large semi-passive single-fan cooler, which has the heat development of the factory overclocking of the Gigabyte Radeon RX 550 2G excellently under control. Only the PCIe slot is needed for the power supply of the graphics card; a dedicated power connector is therefore obsolete.
14 nm FinFET and GCN 4.0: The AMD Radeon RX 550
Thanks to the efficient 14-nm FinFET manufacturing process and extensive developments in control, current-saving and clock-pulse technologies, the Radeon RX 550 achieves impressive performance with a very low TDP of only 50 watts. The reason for this is the 14 nm technology that allows more transistors to be housed on a smaller surface while the power requirement drops.
The fourth-generation, state-of-the-art Graphics Core Next architecture (GCN 4.0) supports useful features such as a command processor, a geometry processor, new multimedia cores, an optimized display engine, and an improved memory controller. Other supported technologies include Async Compute, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and AMD's FreeSync technology.
Monitors can be connected to the graphics card via three paths. Display port, HDMI or DVI-D Dual-Link are available. This means that up to three screens can be connected to the graphics card in a multi-display setup using EyeFinity technology. The HDMI port in standard 2.0b transmits theoretical resolutions up to 4K / UHD at 60 hertz and has HDCP 2.2 for sending and receiving encrypted signals. Via Displayport 1.4 would be even 8K / UHD at 60 hertz possible.
In order to exploit the full potential of the card in the future, new drivers of AMD or Gigabyte should be downloaded and installed at regular intervals.
Graphics card exchange without waiting for caseking!
During the warranty period of 2 years from the date of purchase, Caseking will be exchanged directly by the customer for defective graphics cards - ie those with a defect confirmed by us - of all the brands mentioned below directly against new product (if stocked). A sending of the faulty goods to the manufacturer and associated longer waiting times are thus completely eliminated! If the graphic card to be replaced is no longer available or available, we will issue a credit note. Then an alternative graphics card from our range can be selected freely. Any extra costs incurred can be easily reimbursed and any remaining amounts will be refunded by us.
