Gaming Performance Comparison

Recommended System Requirements
Game GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI Radeon HD 5550 512MB

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 5550 512MB.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 800 MHz higher core clock speed and 256 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 5550. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 358.4 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 RTX 2080 Ti has a 800 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Render Output Units than the HD 5550. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 114.4 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 over three years more recently than the HD 5550, and so the RTX 2080 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the HD 5550 when running the latest games.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 10752 MB more video memory than the HD 5550, 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 552 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 5550, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the HD 5550.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI has 4352 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 5550 512MB has 320. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116 and the actual shader performance of the HD 5550 is 114. The RTX 2080 Ti having 7002 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 HD 5550.

The RTX 2080 Ti transistor size technology is 28 nm (nanometers) smaller than the HD 5550. This means that the RTX 2080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the HD 5550.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI requires 260 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 5550 512MB requires 39 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti and a PSU with at least 400 Watts for the HD 5550. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 221 Watts more than the HD 5550 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 HD 5550.

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.The Evergreen series is a family of GPUs developed by AMD graphics products division. The existence was spotted on a presentation slide from AMD Technology Analyst Day July 2007 as 'R8xx'. ATI held a press event in the USS Hornet museum on September 10, 2009 and announced ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology and specifications of the Radeon HD 5800 series' variants. The first variants of the Radeon HD 5800 series were launched September 23, 2009, with the HD 5700 series launching October 12 and HD 5970 launching on November 18 The HD 5670, was launched on January 14, 2010, and the HD 5500 and 5400 series were launched in February of 2010, completing what has appeared to be most of ATI's Evergreen GPU lineup.
Demand so greatly outweighed supply that more than two months after launch, many online retailers were still having trouble keeping the 5800 and 5900 series in stock.
