Sapphire introduces X550

Sapphire introduces X550

Just look at that cute little guy. Who can resist him?

Sapphire have launched their new X550 cards today, and have plenty of funky options for buyers looking for the perfect card for them.

The card comes with either 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface, and with 128MB or 256MB of memory. It has either a normal heatsink and fan or completely passive heatsink, depending on whether you want a quiet life or the extra overclocking performance.

The engine is clocked at 400MHz and the memory at 500MHz. It sports 4 pixel pipelines and 2 vertex pipelines, and is based on the RV370 core - effectively making it a supercharged X300.

We're still waiting for a price on the board, but we think it's going to make a great entry level board, whilst sporting DVI and TVout for maximum connectivity.
