If you’re looking for a reliable GPU upgrade, look no further than the Radeon RX™ 550.


Whether you’re playing a round of Overwatch or gearing up for a Dota 2 match, the Radeon RX 550 is the card that can transform your PC into a solid eSports gaming machine.


Behind the screen, here’s the only thing you should worry about: set your strategies, clear obstacles, attain victory. Inside your machine, the Radeon RX 550 will take care of the rest: pump out stutter-free frames with its FreeSync™-ready capabilities1, boost you through intense moments with Radeon Software and push performance to its limit so you can make every moment of your game count.




I know how crucial every second is when you’re playing a match. The moment the countdown is at 0 and you run to your point to prepare the defense, the worst thing that could happen is losing time—which effectively hands the advantage over to your competition. And that lost split-second could be the deciding factor in your loss.


Well, we like to look at life half-full. eSports enthusiasts can’t afford this risk, especially when you’re playing in a tournament with so much at stake. Instead of worrying about a split-second that could tank your game, rely on the Radeon RX 550 graphics card to power your real-time instincts and be a deciding factor in your victory.







To show off the Radeon RX 550’s effortless capabilities, I took the MSI Radeon RX 550 for a spin on some of today’s most popular eSports games. I played all these titles on my AMD Ryzen™ 5 1600X processor powered rig at 1080p.
