The RX 550 will brick a budget build
The RX550 will blow out the PCIe slot, and brick your motherboard.
I have had both cards, with a limited power supply, and the GTX 1050 runs safer and stable. The RX550 will blow out the PCIe slot, and brick your motherboard.
As u can see RX 550 sux...
for the drivers nothing more amd wattman rapes nvidia
Poor nvidia fanbois XD hereis test 4 u=)
RX 550 is way overpriced for what you get. For only $20 more you can get a RX 560 which has double the number of rendering units. So you're getting a 20% discount for half the performance. Not a good deal at all, plus GTX 1050 wipes the floor with this card. nVidia is pretty much dominating the entry level this cycle with the 1050 and 1050 Ti. Nobody should be considering a low end card from AMD at this point in time.
Well tbh in my currency you compare a 1.3k card to a 3k card.Now that's kinda retarded and the RX does exactly what it's suppose to do.You should learn what entry level means :D.This are most prob the best budget card on the market at the moment.
the rx550 for winner? What??! Why??
Are you retarded? The Rx 550 is steaming pile of shit, there is no point in buying this card, the GTX 1050 will wipe the floor with the Rx 550. A good sale will get you a Rx 460, for the same price. Just get an Rx 460 for a few dollars more, then compare it to the 1050.
