MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II SLI Video Card Review
22 August 2011
Summary: Packing a GeForce GTX 550 Ti GPU each, we have a pair of N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II video cards that we are going to evaluate against a Radeon HD 6950, GeForce GTX 570 and even an overclocked GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
Conclusion: The MSI GTX550 Ti Cyclone II OC brings a lot to the market. With it’s upgraded cooler, factory overclock, and small size, it’s a great addition to a low to mid-range gaming computer. It performed right where we expected it to at 1680×1050 and at 1920×1200: just slightly behind the GTX460.
Conclusion: Important: In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II OC Video Card a rating out of 10.
Pros: Cyclone II cooler is excellent, Fan at 100% is not too loud, Very nice looks, Excellent build quality, Great value for money, SLI Support, Good overclocking headroom, Good power consumption, Variety of outputs: D-SUB, DVI-I and HDMI
Cons: Hot air from GPU exhausted into case, Extra height of card may cause problems in a small form factor build
MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GB5 OC Video Card Review
30 March 2011
Summary: I'm going to keep this short because the test results speak for themselves. This card would be very easy to recommend if there were no GTX 460 768MB cards out there. For gaming, the GTX 550 Ti's slightly older brother is a far better buy at around $15 US less.
Pros: Great GPU upgrade for pre-built systems with weak PSUs, Respectable 3D, The best value Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 GPU to date (Under $200), Excellent cooling via Cyclone II GPU Cooler
Cons: Great GPU upgrade for pre-built systems with weak PSUs, Respectable 3D, The best value Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 GPU to date (Under $200), Excellent cooling via Cyclone II GPU Cooler, Betrayed by its better performing (and cheaper) GTX 460 768MB brother (for overall 3D Gaming)
Summary: GeForce GTX 550 Ti launched without much fuss and fireworks, but it is the mainstream solutions that usually find their way into our computer systems. Please meet our first candidate – MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone OC!
Pros: High quality of manufacture;, Can compete against Radeon HD 6850 when overclocked;, Wide range of supported FSAA modes;, Highly efficient cooling system;, High performance in applications using tesselation;, Low noise;, Good overclocking potential;, Nvidia PhysX support;, Nvidia CUDA support.
Summary: The MSI N550GTX-Ti was between 4% and 10% faster than the standard GeForce GTX 550 Ti, and since it comes with a better cooling solution and is only USD 5 more expensive than the standard GeForce GTX 550 Ti, it is a good option if you are thinking on buying a video card based on this latest GPU from...
MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II & N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II - overclockiranje i SLI performanse
12 April 2011
Conclusion: Za N560GTX TI Twin Frozr II možemo slobodno reći kako je riječ o kvalitetno napravljenoj kartici, koja svojim solidnim performansama i overclocking potencijalom u potpunosti opravdava cijenu, pa čak i ponešto povišenu razinu buke.
Conclusion: O problema com este novo lançamento, no entanto, é o seu preço. A menos que a NVIDIA baixe o preço da GeForce GTX 550 Ti de forma significativa, é melhor comprar a GeForce GTX 460 com 768 MB, que foi entre 15% e 49% mais rápida e pode ser encontrada na mesma faixa de preço, se você pesquisar um...
