UPDATED: Nvidia's new midrange on Gainward's steroids

For reasons of technical nature, we will not be able to show comparisons with HD 5770 or GTX 460 768MB today, but we will have them soon enough. However, the tests clearly show that the GTX 550 Ti is significantly slower than the GTX 460 1GB or AMD HD 6850.
