POV: GeForce GTX 550 Ti with 4 GB memory? GeForce GTX 550 Ti with 4 GB memory!

I'm at a loss of words to describe what Point of View's 'point of view' could have been, when coming up with a GeForce GTX 550 Ti based graphics card that packs no less than 4096 MB of memory on-card. The company thinks that adding four times the normal amount of memory that runs at half the speed, DDR3 instead of GDDR5, could somehow spice up the specs sheet. Carrying the product code VGA-550-C1-4096, the card's DDR3 memory runs at 1066 MHz (2133 MHz effective) across a 128-bit wide memory interface, while the GeForce GTX 550 Ti runs at 900 MHz core. Its 192 CUDA cores are clocked at 1800 MHz. Point of view did not give out images of the card yet, but we understand it has one each of DVI, D-Sub, and HDMI as display connectors, takes power from one 6-pin power connector, and uses a custom fan-heatsink. It is priced as low as 113.34 Euros. Below is a generic picture of a Point of View GTX 550 Ti graphics card.

It has more memory, but I'm sure a 1GB GDDR5 model will kick its ass. Even a 160sp HD 6450 512MB GDDR5 gives my laptop's 400sp HD 5650 1GB DDR3 a run for its money.

Should do well in Photoshop, I guess. Hey, if the price stays the same, they can pack it with as much RAM as they want.

Remember: People are stupid. 4GB > 3GB so therefore this is better than a GTX590. Probably less likely to explode too.

Marketing strikes again...
It a waste! It's all about memory-bandwidth and on that specification it stinks.
