AMD Radeon RX 540

The Radeon RX 540 is a GPU from AMD released in 2017. This chip has a bad gaming score at 10% in our GPU benchmark.

The Radeon RX 540 has 4 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 93 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 540 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1219 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1219 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.

The performance specs of the Radeon RX 540 are this AMD GPU has a pixel rate of 20 Gigapixels/s, the number of pixels the GPU is capable of outputting every second. Furthermore, it has a texture fill rate of 39 Gigatexels/s, the number of pixels the GPU can renderer per second.

As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 540 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

The raw technical specs of the Radeon RX 540 are: 32 texture mapping units (specialised processors for texture operations, this determines the texture rate) and 16 render output processors or units (the final step in the rendering pipeline, responsible for rasterising the image)
