Without much fanfare, the Phantom Gaming family just welcomed a new member. \n \nASRock introduced the Radeon RX550 2G in its Phantom Gaming lineup. The graphics card supposedly serves as an entry-level for users who want to have their own build. \n \nOne of the features of this GPU is a double-ball bearings design that supposedly extends the lifespan of the fan. The traditional design is prone to oil leakage and friction. The new design supposedly boosts the lifespan of the fan by as much as 40%. With the reduced friction, you can also expect a quieter fan that can run up to 100,000 hours. \n \n \n \nBut you do not buy a graphics card for the cooling alone. Although billed as entry-level, the RX550 2G is built on the 14nm process and the Polaris silicon chip. The memory is 2GB GDDR5, which clocks at 1,750 MHz. The GPU features 512 SPs or stream processors. You will see on the GPU an HDMI 2.0b port, DVI-D connector, and 1.4 DisplayPort. \n \nThere is no more PCIe connector in the device because it already employs a 50W thermal design power. With that said, you need to have a power supply of at least 350W to avoid frying the GPU. \n \nOne of the neat features of the graphics card is the Phantom Tweak software. The technology allows you to select from three different modes. For instance, if you go by the Silent Mode, the boost clock will run at 1,136 MHz and the memory at 6,972 MHz. \n \nWhen you choose the Default Mode, the card’s boost clock will run at 1,183MHz and the memory at 7,000 MHz. Meanwhile, the OC Mode will allow you to overclock at 1,230 MHz and the memory to 7,083 MHz. You can switch between modes without opening up your computer. \n \nAmong the other features of the RX550 2G are: \n \nAmong the other features of the RX550 2G are: \n \n· AMD Eyefinity tech, which allows you to have multiple screens without encountering any trouble \n· FreeSync 2 HDR, which enhances the HDR gaming experience. The feature gets rid of choppiness and screen tearing, as well as improves latency \n· Enhanced sync, meanwhile, will help achieve low latency regardless of the framerate. Even if the display’s refresh rate can’t support the framerate, the GPU will adjust accordingly. \n \nFor now, ASRock has not announced any price point for the Radeon RX550 2G. The company also has not revealed any release date.
