Sapphire Radeon HD 5550 512MB GDDR5 OC Video Card - Test System Setup and 3DMark Vantage

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

We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Western Digital, Noctua and Thermaltake.

 

We'll today mainly be comparing the OC version of the Sapphire HD 5550 against the stock clocked HIS one we looked at recently. We've also thrown in the new GDDR5 HD 5570 along with a HD 5670 for good measure.

 

Let's get started!

 


3DMark Vantage

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.0.1

3DMark Vantage is the new industry standard PC gaming performance benchmark from Futuremark, newly designed for Windows Vista and DirectX10. It includes two new graphics tests, two new CPU tests, several new feature tests, and support for the latest hardware.

 

3DMark Vantage is based on a completely new rendering engine, developed specifically to take full advantage of DirectX10, the new graphics API from Microsoft.

Straight away we can see a nice boost from the OC that is offered from Sapphire.
