In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX 550 2GB.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has a 320 MHz higher core clock speed and 88 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 550. This results in the GeForce RTX 2070 providing 142 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 GeForce RTX 2070 has a 320 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the RX 550. This results in the GeForce RTX 2070 providing 72.8 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 GeForce RTX 2070 was released over a year more recently than the RX 550, and so the GeForce RTX 2070 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RX 550.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has 6144 MB more video memory than the RX 550, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GeForce RTX 2070 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has 448 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 550, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 is massively better than the RX 550.

The GeForce RTX 2070 has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 550 2GB has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 is 3940 and the actual shader performance of the RX 550 is 1075. The GeForce RTX 2070 having 2865 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce RTX 2070 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 550.

The GeForce RTX 2070 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 550. This means that the GeForce RTX 2070 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 550.

The GeForce RTX 2070 requires 175 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 550 2GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GeForce RTX 2070 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 550. The GeForce RTX 2070 requires 100 Watts more than the RX 550 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce RTX 2070 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 550.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2070 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2070 or the GeForce GTX 1170. Architecture It equips a cut-down Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 16 SM activated, offering 2304 CUDA Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It is equipped with 288 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1410 MHz and goes up to 1710 MHz, in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448GB/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 2070 suggests it will be as fast as the Nvidia Titan Xp, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2070 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a high-end processor and 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
Radeon RX 550 2GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Baffin XT which has 14 Compute Units activated and thus 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 350W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power, meaning no Extra Connectors are required.

Performance
This graphics card was designed and marketed towards the competitive MOBO gamers. A light weight, small form factor GPU solution that offers mobility, so that gamers travelling to events can bring a smaller cheaper gaming rig. The Radeon RX 550 2GB can play most modern games at low to medium graphics selection on a 1080p screen res and expect around 45+FPS

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 550 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Recommended CPU-Intel Pentium 200MHz
Intel Pentium 233MHz
