AMD Radeon RX 550 review: New (entry) card on the block

Not every card is a gamer's card


Testresults: Power consumption

We measure the power consumption of the full system in two situations. For the idle test we leave the system on the Windows desktop for 5 minutes, while the stress test consists of measuring the average consumption during a run in Metro Last Light.

Due to the manufacturing process at 14nm and the limited amount of compute units, the Radeon RX 550 proves to be very energy efficient, both under stress and while idle.
