Game GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI Radeon RX 550X 4GB

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI are massively better than the AMD Radeon RX 550X 4GB.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed and 216 more Texture Mapping Units than the RX 550X. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 306.2 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 RTX 2080 Ti has a 260 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Render Output Units than the RX 550X. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 101.4 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 RTX 2080 Ti was released less than a year after the RX 550X, 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 RTX 2080 Ti has 7168 MB more video memory than the RX 550X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 616 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 550X, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the RX 550X.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI has 4352 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon RX 550X 4GB has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116 and the actual shader performance of the RX 550X is 1075. The RTX 2080 Ti having 6041 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RX 550X.

The RTX 2080 Ti transistor size technology is 2 nm (nanometers) smaller than the RX 550X. This means that the RTX 2080 Ti is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the RX 550X.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI requires 260 Watts to run and the Radeon RX 550X 4GB requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti and a PSU with at least 350 Watts for the RX 550X. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 185 Watts more than the RX 550X to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2080 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 550X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the top RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed TU102 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1545MHz in Boost mode. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 285W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
The new AMD Radeon RX 500X series are an OEM version of the current RX 500 series. Radeon RX 550X 4GB is an Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the 4th Generation of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. The specs of the Radeon RX 500X series graphics cards are identical to the standard Radeon RX 500 series.

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
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 550X 4GB can play most modern games at medium graphics selection on a 1600p screen res and expect around 45+FPS. Performance is exactly the same as the Radeon RX 550.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 550X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
