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

Not every card is a gamer's card


Benchmarks (Vulkan): Doom (+ frametimes)

The latest instalment in the Doom series can be run in OpenGL or Vulkan mode, two open-source APIs that can be compared to DirectX 11 and 12 respectively. Vulkan gives you significantly better framerates, especially with AMD cards, which traditionally give good performance with well optimised games using low-level APIs.

At 43 fps on medium settings and 39 on ultra, Doom does not really play well.
