How well can the Radeon RX 550 4GB run games
24 Jun 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A mid level piece of gaming hardware, this Radeon RX 550 4GB graphics card can still meet and run indie system requirements and some of the less demanding AAA games. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the Radeon RX 550 4GB get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. 272 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 550 4GB can run Cyberpunk 2077 at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see the Ghost Recon Breakpoint which returns a weak 16 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the Radeon RX 550 4GB ran Cyberpunk 2077 to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game tested was Ghost Recon Breakpoint, L: 32FPS, M: 25FPS, H: 17FPS, U: 12FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on, Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip which returned L: 35FPS, M: 28FPS, H: 19FPS, U: 13FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon RX 550 4GB is not going to be able to maintain a playable game at this resolution.

How many years will the Radeon RX 550 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 550 4GB in your PC? This Radeon RX 550 4GB card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 550 4GB? A great upgrade graphics card would be a 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which has 121% better performance and can run 922 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 62% better and can meet 724 of their recommended requirements.
