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.  

Fuse protection

In order to protect your card, the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ series cards have fuse protection built into the circuit of the external PCI-E power connector to keep the components safe.

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%.

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.

DirectX® 12

DirectX® 12 is a new, “console-like” graphics API from Microsoft® that empowers game developers with more direct and obvious control of PC hardware. This direct or “explicit” control better exposes the hardware resources of AMD Radeon™ GPUs to yield higher hardware throughput and, ultimately, more performance for users. To put it simply: much more efficient hardware through smarter software! At the discretion of a game developer, this superior efficiency can be spent on higher framerates, lower latency (VR), lower power consumption, better image quality, or some calculated balance of all four. In any scenario, gamers stand to benefit greatly from choosing AMD hardware to run their favorite DirectX® 12 game.

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

  • Synchronizes the refresh rate of a compatible monitor to the frame rate of your content, however much it varies
  • Monitor partners are validating with drivers from AMD now 

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!

AMD Eyefinity Technology

Multidisplay technology for gaming, productivity and entertainment

We are taking you beyond the boundaries of traditional PC displays. AMD Eyefinity technology expands the traditional limits of desktop computing by multiplying your screen area. With multiple monitors, games become more immersive, workstations become more useful and you become more productive (an average of 42% more productive according to one study).

Take your PC games to the next level of reality and immersion. Most modern games look great on three screens, and only AMD Radeon™ graphics offer you the ability to play across five screens for an eye-popping gaming experience. Other combinations and configurations with up to six screens work too.1 Create your dream display.

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.
