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

 


Nvidia today launched its new mid-range offering dubbed the Geforce GTX 550 Ti. We did not receive the reference model but we believe you won’t shed any tears over it as our guest is none other than Gainwards GTX 550 Ti Golden Sample. As you probably know by now, the GTX 550 Ti is based on the 40nm GF116 GPU which sports 192 CUDA cores paired up with the 192-bit memory interface and 1GB of GDDR5 memory.

In order to stand out of the crowd that launched reference based GTX 550 Ti cards, Gainward overclocked the GPU and memory as well as implemented specially designed cooling. As far as availability goes, it’s quite likely that you’ll be able to purchase Gainwards GTX 550 Ti GS and other GTX 550 Ti cards already today, here.

Reference GTX 550 Ti clocks are 900MHz for the GPU and double that for shaders. However, Gainward boosted its card by another 100MHz so the GS (Golden Sample) GPU runs at 1000MHz. GS memory clock is 4400MHz (efective).


The card’s cooler comes with a large heatsink and will take care of thermals. Maximum consumption stands at 116W (for overclocked GS card TDP is about 30W higher) and the card comes with one 6-pin PCI-Express power connector.
