In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti Zotac Edition.

The RX Vega has a 31 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 550 Ti. This results in the RX Vega providing 45.7 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX Vega has a 31 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Render Output Units than the GTX 550 Ti. This results in the RX Vega providing 8.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX Vega was released over three years more recently than the GTX 550 Ti, and so the RX Vega is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 550 Ti when running the latest games.

The RX Vega has 3072 MB more video memory than the GTX 550 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX Vega also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX Vega has 260 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 550 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the RX Vega is massively better than the GTX 550 Ti.

The Radeon RX Vega 8 has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Zotac Edition has 192. However, the actual shader performance of the RX Vega is 841 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 346. The RX Vega having 495 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX Vega delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 550 Ti.

The RX Vega transistor size technology is 26 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 550 Ti. This means that the RX Vega is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti Zotac Edition requires 116 Watts to run but there is no entry for the RX Vega. We would recommend a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the RX Vega and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the GTX 550 Ti. The two GPUs have been recommended a PSU with the same amount of wattage. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview Radeon RX Vega M GL is a dedicated Graphics processor found in Intel's Desktop 8th Gen G-Series CPUs. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed Vega M which offers 20 Compute Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 931MHz and goes up to 1011MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU utilises its own onboard HBM2 memory. Radeon RX Vega M GH has 4GB of second-generation High Bandwidth Memory, clocked at 1.4Gb/s. Sat on a 1024-bit memory interface, this provides total memory bandwidth of 179.2GB/s. Performance The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GTX 1050. Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools. System Suggestions We recommend 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon RX Vega M GH.GeForce GTX 550 Ti Zotac Edition is a special edition of fast-middle-class GeForce GTX 550 Ti that features a new cooling system and nothing else. Therefore, its performance is exactly like the reference GeForce GTX 550 Ti created by NVIDIA.
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.
