Sapphire take the time to overclock the HD 5550 512MB GDDR5. We ask ourselves if it's a waste of time.

Sapphire has moved away from the reference cooler and opted for an Arctic Cooling one to help keep the core nice and cool, while at the same time giving them the chance to OC the model a little. Apart from that, there's not a whole lot else to the card; we've got no power or CrossFire connectors and connectivity is a Dual-Link DVI Port, HDMI and DisplayPort.

While Sapphire has chosen to leave the 512MB of GDDR5 memory at the default 4000MHz QDR, they have bumped the core a massive 100MHz to 650MHz. This is quite an overclock on a low end card. From a percentage point of view, from 550MHz it's an increase of almost 20%.
