Footnotes
  1. Discrete AMD Radeon™ and FirePro™ GPUs based on the Graphics Core Next architecture consist of multiple discrete execution engines known as a Compute Unit (“CU”). Each CU contains 64 shaders (“Stream Processors”) working together.
  2. Testing done by AMD Performance Labs March 2nd 2017 using an Intel Core i7 6700K (@4.0GHz), 1x8GB DDR4-2667 MHz memory, AMD web driver 17.1.1, Intel Display Driver 20.19.15.4590 and Windows 10 (64bit). PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. The following games were tested at 1080p: Counter Strike: Global Offensive (Ultra Presets, DX9), DOTA 2 (Best Looking Preset, DX9), Overwatch (Medium Presets, DX11), Rocket League (High Presets, DX9), World of Warships (High Presets, DX9). The Radeon™ RX 550 (2GB) scored 96.5, 84.2, 98.0, 81.5 and 71.2 respectively. The Radeon™ R7 250 scored 59.0, 46.4, 44.4, 56.1 and 43.3 respectively. Intel HD 530 IGP scored 23.8, 23, 18.4, 18.5 and 24.7 respectively. All scores in average FPS and are an average of 3 runs with the same settings. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.
