All of the NVIDIA products get up-to-date pages, but AMD products get left in the dust:


  • TDP is 75W
  • 512 shader processing units
  • 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs
  • 512 KB L2 Cache
  • Core speed is 1100 MHz, boosts up to 1183 MHz
  • 128-bit GDDR5 memory

Just realised that I made a mistake by re-stating that TDP is 75W; I meant to say 50W.

Does it actually take 50W or 75W? I'm planning on buying this for dirt cheap but with not the best PSU, A Corsair B1 400W can handle it right? With i3-2100 and 8GB of RAM?

It dissipates 50W of heat, so the actual consumption will probably be similar. Seeing as GPUs like the 750 Ti (60W) were used as straight upgrades to OEM PCs, your PSU should handle the RX 550 fine.
