The ASUS UK website has officially listed the budget Radeon RX 550 graphics cards in their website, showing two different versions with a 2GB and a 4GB option available. The Radeon RX 550 uses the Polaris 12 GPU with 512 stream processors and using either 2GB or 4GB GDDR5 on a 128-bit memory bus width.
Other than the memory configuration and the price, the ASUS RX 550 4GB and RX 550 2GB’s features are identical. Both measure a compact 18.2 x 11.2 x4.3 cm and do not require additional power from the PSU, drawing directly from the PCIe bus. It has a single 80mm dust-proof IP5X certified fan that blows directly on the aluminum block heatsink on top of the GPU core.
The ASUS RX 550 has a DVI-D port, an HDMI 2.0 port and a DisplayPort. The maximum display resolution output support maxes at 5120 x 2880. Both 2GB and 4GB versions operate at 1183 MHz core clock.
