GeForce GTX 550 Ti Graphics Accelerator Review
In most industries, and especially in IT, sales are expected to peak twice a year during the back-to-school and Christmas seasons when many people go shopping to buy stuff for their children or relations. The manufacturers, on their part, try to prepare their most exciting and innovative solutions right in time for these period of high demand. This is why the beginning of 2011 in the graphics card market may look somewhat odd as AMD and Nvidia were both unveiling new products in every price segment. This unusual behavior is due to the fierce competition which doesn’t let the GPU developers take a break.

The California-headquartered Nvidia has recently released the most affordable solution in its newest 500 series of graphics cards. It is called GeForce GTX 560 Titanium (or just Ti; you may remember that Nvidia used this abbreviation back in the times of CRT monitors and AGP graphics cards). Coming at a recommended price of $250, the new card is about 30% faster overall than the previous-generation products from the same price category.

However, the GPU developers themselves have repeatedly emphasized the fact that they earn most of their money by selling products which cost less than $200, which means that Nvidia needed another solution to replace the outdated GeForce GTS 450. The company did announce this replacement a couple of weeks ago, so today we are going to take a look at the new GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card.
