In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX 550 4GB.

The GTX 1080 has a 581 MHz higher core clock speed and 104 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 550. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 206.4 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 GTX 1080 has a 581 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the RX 550. This results in the GTX 1080 providing 89.5 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 550 was released less than a year after the GTX 1080, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

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 GTX 1080 has 4096 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 GTX 1080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 1080 has 320.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 550, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 1080 is massively better than the RX 550.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB has 2560 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 550 4GB has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 1080 is 6255 and the actual shader performance of the RX 550 is 1075. The GTX 1080 having 5180 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 1080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 550.

The RX 550 transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 1080. This means that the RX 550 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 1080.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Asus ROG Strix A8G Gaming 8GB requires 300 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 550 4GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 1080 and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 550. The GTX 1080 requires 225 Watts more than the RX 550 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 1080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 550.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
DirectCU III Technology with Direct-GPU Contact Heatpipes: Exclusive DirectCU III cooling technology features direct-GPU contact heatpipes that transports more heat away from the GPU and outperform reference designs, achieving up to 30% cooler gaming performance.

Performance
At 1920x1080, Benchmarks Indicate a 5.7% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 1080. This goes up to 7.4% at 3840x2160.
Overview
Radeon RX 550 4GB 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 4GB 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
