Gaming Performance Comparison

Recommended System Requirements
Game GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed and 208 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 550 Ti. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 309.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 2080 Ti has a 450 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Render Output Units than the GTX 550 Ti. This results in the RTX 2080 Ti providing 75.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 2080 Ti was released over three years more recently than the GTX 550 Ti, and so the RTX 2080 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GTX 550 Ti when running the latest games.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 9216 MB more video memory than the GTX 550 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 Ti has 419.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 550 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is massively better than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI has 4352 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 Ti is 7116 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 691. The RTX 2080 Ti having 6425 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GTX 550 Ti.

The RTX 2080 Ti transistor size technology is 28 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GTX 550 Ti. This means that the RTX 2080 Ti is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti SLI requires 260 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI requires 250 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080 Ti and a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the GTX 550 Ti. The RTX 2080 Ti requires 10 Watts more than the GTX 550 Ti to run. The difference is not significant enough for the RTX 2080 Ti to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GTX 550 Ti.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the top RTX 20 Series graphics card and considered an Enthusiast graphics card based on the Turing architecture. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. GPU It equips a GPU Codenamed TU102 which has 4352 Shader Processing Units, 272 TMUs and 88 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1350MHz and goes up to 1545MHz in Boost mode. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. Memory The GPU accesses an 11GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 352-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 285W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with two 8-pin power connectors. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a top-End Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for optimal performance.Overview
GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 550 Ti put together using NVIDIA's SLI Technology.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GF116-400-A1 which, together, offer 384 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Central Unit is Clocked at 900MHz.

Memory
Each GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1025MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption lies between 225W and 250W.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI's performance stands somewhere between GeForce GTX 560 Ti and GeForce GTX 570.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 550 Ti SLI.
