The Radeon RX 550 GPU is based on the Polaris 12 architecture utilizing the 14nm FinFET manufacturing process. Due to the improvements in the 500-series GPUs over the 400-series, the new models allow higher clock speeds – 1100 – 1183 MHz. And although the chip features 640 shaders, the RX 550 uses only 512 of them.
The chip integrates a 128-bit memory bus, 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM clocked at 7000 MHz effective clock speed. The whole TDP of the chip should be slightly lower than 50W since the desktop variant is rated at 50W. The RX 550 supports the usual features like DisplayPort 1.3 / 1.4, HDMI 2.0, AMD FreeSync, DirectX 12 and Vulkan.
