GTX 550 Ti with i7-2600K benchmarks at Low Quality settings

The GTX 550 Ti is more suitable for budget PC builds and less demanding games. With current 1024 MB RAM, the GTX 550 Ti can have serious memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games. It is important to know that GTX 550 Ti 's max load temperature is very high and might require custom cooling solutions. This combination between GTX 550 Ti and Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz has less than 8% bottleneck in many games and is perfect match to avoid FPS loss. This combination between GTX 550 Ti and Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz is a perfect match to avoid FPS loss.

The GTX 560 might be the entry-level flagship of the latest Fermi 2.0 set of graphics cards, but their prices keep them out of the reach of most budget PC gamers. On the other hand, the GTX 550 Ti is closer to being reasonably affordable at a price tag of $ 149. NVIDIA ’s xx50 cards have always been defined by budget prices with performance that knocks on the door of entry-level graphics cards – especially when overclocked. After taking the time to fully test the Fermi 2.0 graphics card inside the GTX 550 Ti, we can say without a doubt that it continues the trend.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the GTX 550 Ti consistently delivers frame rate increases over the GTS 450, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade.

Critics Reviews

If you absolutely refuse to spend much more than £100, or even £100 at all, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB is at least a sizeable improvement over its predecessor the GeForce GTS 450 1GB.
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB Specifications As with the rest of Nvidia’s GeForce 500-series, the GF116 GPU of the GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB is based on the Fermi architecture of its predecessor.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti GPU, Front and Back. As we’ve mentioned, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti GPU is an update and refinement of the GeForce GTX 450.
Unlike the GTS 450 launch, GTX 550 Ti is a more laid back affair for NVIDIA – admittedly this is more often a bad sign than it is a good one when it comes to gauging their confidence in a product.
GTX 550 Ti’s Quirk: 1GB Of VRAM On A 192-bit Bus. One thing that has always set NVIDIA apart from AMD is their willingness to use non-power of 2 memory bus sizes.
The GeForce GTX 550 Ti was a mid-range graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2011. Built on the 40 nm process, and based on the GF116 graphics processor, in its GF116-400-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0.
