Sapphire 11268-01-20G graphics card Radeon RX 550 4 GB GDDR5

Quick Overview

Radeon RX 550, 4GB GDDR5, 128-bit
The SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX550 is a low-tier model perfect for online games like League of Legneds, Voerwatch, Rocket League or Counter Strike:Global Offensive. Based on a modern Polaris architecture and sporting 512 GCN stream processors boost-clocked at 1206 MHz, the RX550 is up to 5X faster than an Intel integrated Graphics and up to 2X faster than the previous generation Radeon R7 250 card. The modern GPU also means better support for the latest display and video technologies, such as DriectX 12, FreeSync or H.265 4K encoding.

Frame Rate Target Control
Frame Rate Target Control (FRTC) enables users to set a target maximum frame rate when playing an application in full screen mode; the benefit being that FRTC can reduce GPU power consumption (great for games running at frame rates much higher than the display refresh rate) and therefore reduce heat generation and fan speeds/noise on the graphics card.

Frame Rate Target Control caps performance not only in 3D rendered in-game scenes, but also in splash screens, loading screens and menus, where frame rates can often run needlessly into the hundreds of FPS. Users might wish to set a very high cap just to limit wasteful FPS like that seen in menus and such, while still taking advantage of the responsiveness given by FPS well beyond 60.

AMD Freesync technology
No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming.
AMD FreeSync™ technology allows a compatible graphics card and monitor to dynamically change frame rates for the optimum display quality without tearing or stuay.

Industry-Standard Displayport
Freesync uses industry-standard displayport Adaptive-Sync Eliminates screen tearing without all the usual lag and latency

AMD XConnect™ Technology
Plug in and game on with AMD XConnect technology.
Now it’s easier than ever to connect and use an external Radeon™ graphics card. With AMD XConnect™ technology, external GPU enclosures configured with Radeon™ Graphics can easily connect and disconnect to a compatible ultrathin notebook or 2-in 1 over Thunderbolt™ 3 at any time, just like a USB flash drive—a first for external GPUs!

HDR Ready
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a state-of-the-art technology for gamers and cinephiles that care deeply about the display quality of their TV or monitor. Modeled after the acuity of human vision, HDR vastly expands the range of colors and contrast ratios that can be shown by compatible displays. HDR-ready games and movies played on an HDR display appear strikingly sharp, colorful, and vivid, with enhanced contrast and sophisticated nuance compared to even the most stunning SDR content.

Long life black polymer cap
High quality aluminum-made long life capacitor is not only to extend the component life time, the product reliability and overclocking ability are also improved. When operational temperatures dropped by 20°C, the product life span is going to be extended up to a factor of ten. In addition, when the operational temperature increased by 20°C, the product life span only decreased by 10%.
