MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II Graphics Card

18 April 2011
  • 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.

MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II 1GB5 OC Video Card Review

30 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Everyone loves the way a high-end graphics card plays games, destroys benchmarks, and makes you the envy of every LAN party. While we appreciate top end hardware most of us are only willing to pay bottom dollar to play the hottest games. That’s why nVidia has been trying to hard to win over gamers at the $200 US sweet spot.

  • 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 NVIDIA. The reviewed video card is, as expected, faster than the GeForce GTS 450, between 15% and 29% faster on our tests.

E mesmo que ela seja um pouco mais cara, veja se não vale a pena pagar um pouquinho a mais para ter esse ganho de desempenho.

  • Excerpt: Компания NVIDIA продолжает обновлять модельный ряд. Все новинки пятисотой серии являются доработанными старыми решениями.
