VisionTek has announced the addition of the Radeon RX 550 to its lineup of AMD graphics cards. This factory-overclocked card seems aimed at budget-conscious buyers. The GPU aboard it is has a base clock speed of 1100 MHz and a boost clock that can go as far as 1203 MHz. The card sports 2 GB of GDD5 memory connected to a 128-bit memory bus.
The advertised speed isn't a large overclock over the standard boost of 1183 MHz, but the card still requires its own 8-pin PCIe connector. The spec sheet on VisionTek's site is pretty sparse, but the company notes that the card offers one each of DisplayPort, DVI, and HDMI 2.0b ports. Tom's Hardware says that the VisionTek RX 550 is a dual-slot card.
VisionTek has the card on its site with a price tag of $89.99, though it's currently showing as out of stock. We expect it to show up on Amazon and Newegg before too long, though. The company offers 2-year limited warranty coverage on the Radeon RX 550.
