The Card

Looking at the card, there's not a lot going on with the cooler looking a bit like an engine with pistons coming out the side. We've got that trademarked orange fan and apart from that there's not a whole lot else going on.

Around the rest of the card we've got a single 6-Pin PCI-E power connector, single SLI connector and connectivity comes in the form of a HDMI, Dual-Link DVI and VGA port.

Specifications

On the clock front, Palit is offering us a juicy 1GHz clock. That increased core clock means that the Shader clock has also been increased and that comes in at 2000MHz. Like the other GTX 550 Ti cards we've looked at, Palit hasn't chosen to ignore the 1GB of GDDR5 and bumps that up as well.

Above you can see the memory comes in at 1100MHz or 4400MHz QDR. Of course, today we're going to be looking at SLI performance for the model and you can see across the bottom that our SLI tab shows 2 GPUs are enabled.
