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.

Overclocking; Temperatures; Noise

All three parameters are satisfactory. Gainward GTX 550 Ti GS has 100MHz faster GPU clock and 296MHz (effectively) faster memory. Additional overclock was not that much, but we couldn’t expect more given that the fact already runs at 1GHz.

Core temperatures didn’t go over 74°C and the fan is pretty quiet.
