AMD Cape Verde Image
The Radeon RX 540 is a graphics card by AMD, launched in April 2017. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Cape Verde graphics processor, in its Cape Verde PRX variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Cape Verde graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 123 mm² and 1,500 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition, which uses the same GPU but has all 640 shaders enabled, AMD has disabled some shading units on the Radeon RX 540 to reach the product's target shader count. It features 512 shading units, 32 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. AMD has placed 4,096 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1219 MHz, memory is running at 1500 MHz.
We recommend the AMD Radeon RX 540 for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1680x1050.
Being a dual-slot card, the AMD Radeon RX 540 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 65 W maximum. Radeon RX 540 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.
