NVIDIA is getting ready to launch the GeForce GTX 550 Ti on March 15th. The video card is based off of the new GF116 chipset and is expected to be up to 35% faster than AMD Radeon’s HD 5770 in DirectX 11, and about 20% faster in DirectX 10. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti should perform just as fast as the GeForce GTX 460.
The GeForce GTX 550 Ti will have two dual-link DVI-I ports and one mini HDMI port for display output. Its 110W thermal design power (TDP) is pretty much the same as the GeForce GTS 450’s 106W and will have the same sunflower cooler.
The GTX 550 Ti only comes with 1GB GDDR memory. The larger GeForce GTX 590 is a dual GF110 GPU solution and will have 3GB GDDR memory. No formal date was given on the GTX 590 but beta drivers indicate that it should be soon.
