I'm thinking of rebuilding some GPU rigs, has anyone used the $80 RX 550s in a GPU rig yet?

Curious about it too.  I think I read that it did not have an external power connector meaning all power is provided over the PCIe slot itself.  I suspect that will severely limit what these can do.  But wouldn't mind hearing first hand reports.

Based on the number of cores ( 512 ) these should perform similar to 1/4 of a 470.  IMO miners are better off getting a 470 or 570 4gb at around $150 - $170.

So what's that like 6.25 mining ETH at stock with basically almost no ability to OC since the limitations are in the mobo itself?  Well that does sound like a waste of time.

It looks to be 10-15% faster then a Rx 460 which gets 10 Mh/s. I would not buy a Rx 550 for mining (nor a 460 for that matter).

Good point ^ the 550 ought to be even worse.... also with only 2GB of VRAM it won't even run some of the most popular miners.

With 2GB VRAM, it cannot even mine ethereum. FYI, last year November was the last month that 2GB VRAM GPU could still mine ETH. If you want to mine ETH, try getting a AMD RX 470/480. Both cards offer good bang for the buck and you might be to earn the card for free by mining and then selling concurrency.
