The GTX 550 Ti looks like a promising little chip, with another factory-overclocked card being announced, this time by Gainward.
With their GTX 550 Ti 1024MB "Golden Sample", Gainward have given the 900MHz GPU a respectable 100MHz overclock, to 1GHz, with the shader clock up to 2GHz and the GDDR5 Memory running at 2.2GHz.
Being a factory overclocked card, it comes with a custom cooler featuring Gainwards “GR8” 80mm fan. As would be expected, the card features Japanese solid-state capacitors for improved reliability and overclocking headroom.
Gainward also have a reference version available, specs can be compared on the chart in the image scroller.
