    Just a little later this week, NVIDIA will unveil the GeForce GTX 550 Ti mainstream graphics processor (GPU), successor to GeForce GTS 450. NVIDIA partners seem to be ready with their products based on the new GPU. One of NVIDIA's largest partners, Galaxy, is even ready with a highly overclocked model with its core running at 1 GHz (900 MHz reference), and 1150 MHz (1025 MHz reference) memory speed. Galaxy's card will use the HOF (Hall of Fame) identifier, which is supposed to indicate the company's highest level of factory-overclock speeds.

    Based on the 40 nm GF116 silicon, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti packs 192 CUDA cores, and a 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 1 GB of memory, that's right, 1 GB, not 768 MB or 1536 MB. It looks like NVIDIA will be doing a mixed density memory chip setup. We can hypothesize that four of the six chips are 1 Gbit (128 MB), amounting for 512 MB; and two 2 Gbit (256 MB), amounting for the other 512 MB. Galaxy's HOF card will use a 3+1 phase VRM to power the card, and feature a dual-slot cooler. Its display connectivity includes one each of DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort.

    that looks darn sexy. Now if they can get the price right and give you 460SE performance at 120-130$, we've got a winnAr

    I wouldn't put this at $120 segment. Performance should be closer to 460 so $150-$200. Which fits since the 560 is about $250.

    if this is anything like the other nvidia cards then expect it to be as powerful as a 460 but run cooler.

    great to see she packs a 192-bit memory interface and 24 ROPS, this baby should smoke a GTX260, perhaps be ob par with GTX275/280/285 levels.

    gotta admit thats a fair amount of power for such a low card.
