[Various] GTX 550 Ti Reviews

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 
NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti @ AnandTech.

Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti OC @ Hexus.
GTS 450 vs GTX 550 Ti at the same clocks @ Hexus.

ASUS GTX 550 Ti DirectCU @ techPowerUp.
MSI GTX 550 Ti Cyclone @ techPowerUp.
Palit GTX 550 Ti Sonic @ techPowerUp.
Zotac GTX 550 Ti AMP! @ techPowerUp.

NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti @ HardwareCanucks.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Roundup @ HardwareCanucks.

Zotac GTX 550 Ti AMP! @ TechRadar.

MSI N550GTX Ti @ OverclockersClub
ASUS GTX550 Ti DirectCU TOP @ OverclockersClub

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti reference @ PureOC.
ASUS GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP @ PureOC.
MSI GTX 550 Ti Cyclone @ PureOC.
Gigabyte GTX 550 Ti @ PureOC

MSI GTX 550 Ti Cyclone @ Guru3D.
KFA2/Galaxy GTX 550 Ti LTD OC White Edition @ Guru3D

I couldn't find the GTX 5xx reviews thread so if a mod wants to merge, then it's cool.
Reference card matches a 5770 (at 1080/1200p), and the overclocked ones can get close to the GTX 460 768. Price is a bit steep though, at £130 it's the same as a faster GTX 460.

Guess AnandTech didn't even bother writing the correct specs. It says that the GTS 450 has a 256-bit bus width when it actually has 128-bit. Also, they state prices as being ~$90 for the 450 when, as of now, they're being sold at $110-120.

Guess somebody was rushing.

Anand haven't been the same recently... i think they're now focusing too much on general tech...

A nice improvement over the GTS 450. Pricing will make or break this card though, so I'll wait and see what the UK retailers come up with.

Anything over £120 is too much I'd say.

Pricing is $150 in the US and £120 in the UK. You can grab a GTX 460 for around £115. Price is just stupid to be honest. Overpriced just like the GTS 450and GTX 460 SE were.

I would probably pick HD5770 over this, 36% cheaper and nearly identical performance (usually even better) in 1920*1200.

Plus I didn't find what driver they used for the AMD cards? If it wasn't 11.4 I'd like to see all tests again since many people reported great performance improve with the 11.4 (Mjölnir).

Great performance for the price. A whooping 5% faster than the Radeon HD 5770 at the target resolution (1680x1050) while costing only 20% more.

Overclockersclub.com reviews:
MSI N550GTX Ti
ASUS GTX550 Ti DirectCU TOP

Newegg Pricing:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...%20%28Fermi%29

With the easily attainable 2000 mhz on the shaders, this may become the next go to folding card.
