GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus Edition SLI Game Requirement Analysis
GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus Edition SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus Edition put together using NVIDIA's SLI Technology.
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.
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 910MHz.
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.
DirectCU: Precision mounted DirectCU copper heatpipes in direct contact with the GPU for rapid heat dissipation – creating 20% cooler and quiet performance in idle.
Benchmarks Indicate a 1% Performance Boost over the Reference GeForce GTX 550 Ti in SLI.
GeForce GTX 550 Ti Asus Edition 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 Asus Edition SLI.
