Good GPU for a Streaming PC 7/2/2020 5:40:19 PM

Pros: Pricing was okay. Im happy that the encoding was good enough to record gameplay on a separate pc. My main one has a rx 590

Some limitations but constantly testing throught Streamlabs and im satisfied with the results. Much more better than running off CPU

Doesn't need external power

Cons: Not really any cons, its good for the price to record. I have not tried it on gaming my only use is to record gameplay

Overall Review: Love it for the budget price and just pop it in. No extra power needed

Works OK but Install Was Poor 6/22/2020 3:16:25 PM

Pros: Once I got it installed, it seems to work fine.

Cons: My computer (Win 10/64) didn't recognize the video card on bootup. The setup app on the CD also did not recognize the video card and the video card did not appear on the list in the Device Manager. I tried to download the install utility, but it consistently hung up at 36% downloaded. In the end, I went to the driver app several levels down on the CD and was able to get it to run to install the driver.

Overall Review: I would not recommend this to others unless they fix the bugs in the installation.

Good for what it costs 4/22/2020 2:04:06 PM

Pros: Inexpensive, Easy to install. Does NOT need to be connected to power supply, even though the very first page of the manual says it does. Software/drivers installed with no issues. Can be overclocked.

Cons: Only con is that I bought this to use a VR headset for VR Chat and according to Oculus Rift Support it no longer meets the minimum requirements.

Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone who wants to upgrade from onboard graphics. It makes a difference in FPS in Tera and VR Chat (desktop mode). I don't use this computer for much more than that as it is 7 years old, and the grand kids use it when they come to visit. Don't buy it if you want too use a VR headset though, an RX 570 is now the minimum.

Great little card for the price 7/12/2019 8:20:59 AM

Pros: Compact
Low power consumption
Runs very cool
Price to performance is awesome
Does exactly what I need it to do and then some!

Cons: None. I just wish ASRock made their budget motherboards as well as their low end GPUs.

Overall Review: I bought this GPU for my streaming PC and couldnt be happier. I paired it with a Ryzen 5 1400 and 16 Gbs of DDR4 GSkill Flare X 2400 MHz ram. The card is solid for a budget streaming machine and does what I need it to do. I have used it to encode my OBS stream (normally I just use my CPU to encode) and it works flawlessly w/ 0 dropped frames. Ive even done some light gaming with it just out of curiosity and was SHOCKED when I was able to play PUBG on medium settings! For a budget build and entry level gamer I would highly recommend this card. A lot of people will scream to spend a few bucks extra and get a GTX 1030 and I can tell you that this is nonsense. I own BOTH cards and the performance is identical. AND the RX 550 supports 3 monitors while to 1030 supports just 2.

DOA.. Bricks Computers While Turning On... 7/10/2019 5:20:35 PM

Pros: No Pro's..

Cons: DOA
Bricks Computers/ Boot Loop

Overall Review: I will not recommend this product to anyone, the gpu came as a DOA, i have tested on four computer with different specs, drivers etc.. no turn on.. it seems that as soon as you plug it in your computer, it will brick it... some other people say that the gpu works just fine but it is not worth the risk... i advise you to look somewhere else for a gpu.. If and when it does try to boot and download any files for it... your computer will be a potato, no display on the displayport, DVI, hdmi...If you want to get this gpu i advise anyone that want to try there luck to get a 3 Year VGA Protection Plan.. just to be safe... i will and currently will get a DOA refund because it does not work at all.. Again, the status of this gpu will be considered all DOA.

Really good 7/7/2019 3:39:00 PM

Pros: Accurate to what’s advertised. Good for 1080p gaming (can do 1440p if not so picky)

Cons: You’ll have to play with medium or low settings if you want a crisp frame rate.

Overall Review: I’ve had this card for a while now and it hasn’t shown any problems like people on here like to exaggerate. Not bad for $85.

Arrived DOA 5/25/2019 2:32:35 PM

Pros: Newegg handled return and refund of this item painlessly.

Cons: The bad news.... This card is arriving DOA or failing prematurely or exhibiting problems for many people who buy it.

Overall Review: This is unfortunate, as ASRock's venture into the GPU market has been otherwise pretty positive, with most of their cards having very high initial reliability/performance/cooling/noise characteristics in their respective price classes.

I would not hesitate to buy an ASRock GPU or motherboard, I've had very good luck with the brand overall and they consistently deliver great value. This particular batch of RX 550's has something wrong with it that slipped by QC. Avoid this particular GPU...

For another 45 bucks or so an RX570 is in reach, may as well go that route. I originally purchased this as a video output device for a basic use small form factor machine, so really didn't care about the lower performance proposition here.
