  1. 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.
  2. Compatible with Radeon™ consumer graphics products in supported DirectX®9 and DirectX®11 games for Windows®7/8.1/10. For more details and a whitelist of supported games, see http://www.amd.com/en-us/innovations/software-technologies/radeon-software/gaming/radeon-chill.
  3. Testing done by AMD Performance Labs March 14th 2017 using an Intel Core i7 6700K (@4.0GHz), 1x4GB DDR4-2666 MHz memory, AMD web driver 17.1.1, Intel Display Driver 20.19.15.4539 and Windows 10 (64bit). PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. When using the Adobe Photoshop (2017) program a 4K image (300 dpi) was rotated 180 degrees, crystalized by a factor of 10, blurred using the Gaussian Blur tool by a factor of 1 pix, sharpened using the Smart Sharpen tool and rotated again by 180 degrees. The software rendered the picture in 87 seconds (not using GPU acceleration). The Radeon™ RX 550, Radeon™ R7 250, Intel HD 530 IGP rendered the clip in 18.7, 23.7, and 39.6 seconds respectively with OpenCL acceleration enabled. All times an average of 3 test runs. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.
  4. Testing done by AMD Performance Labs March 14th 2017 using an Intel Core i7 6700K (@4.0GHz), 1x4GB DDR4-2666 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. When using the Adobe Premier Pro (2017) program a 30-second 1080p mp4 video clip was flipped vertically, lens distortion applied, and blurred using the Gaussian Blur tool by a factor of 1 pix. The software rendered the picture in 202.2 seconds (not using GPU acceleration). The Radeon™ RX 550 (2GB), Radeon™ R7 250 and Intel HD 530 IGP rendered the clip in 10.4, 15.9, and 52.4 seconds respectively with OpenCL acceleration enabled. All times an average of 3 test runs. Performance may vary based on use of latest drivers.
  5. FreeSync 2 does not require HDR capable monitors; driver can set monitor in native mode when FreeSync 2 supported HDR content is detected. Otherwise, HDR content requires that the system be configured with a fully HDR-ready content chain, including: graphics card, graphics driver and application. Video content must be graded in HDR and viewed with an HDR-ready player. Windowed mode content requires operating system support.
  6. DisplayPort 1.4 Specification published February 23, 2016, and is expected to pass VESA’s compliance testing process when available.

HDR content requires that the system be configured with a fully HDR-ready content chain, including: graphics card, monitor/TV, graphics driver and application. Video content must be graded in HDR and viewed with an HDR-ready player. Windowed mode content requires operating system support.
