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

 

We'll be comparing the ASUS GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP against a few cards today including the MSI Cyclone II version which carries a 950MHz / 4300MHz QDR setup, GTX 460, GTX 560 Ti and on the AMD front we've got the HD 5770 and HD 6790.

 

Let's get started!

Straight away we're able to see the extra boost in performance we get from the ASUS card thanks to the nice overclock we've achieved.
