HIS HD5550 Silence 1GB DDR3 Review

Rating: 8.5.

If you hate noise and want to build a media center then today’s product will be of particular interest – the HIS HD5550 Silence 1GB graphics card. At KitGuru we have focused recently on this market, covering several ATI and nVidia solutions as we know many of our readers are building media systems.

The HIS HD5550 Silence 1GB Graphics card is fully Direct X 11 compliant and also supports EyeFinity Technology while only demanding a total of 40w under load. This card on test today is a 1300mhz DDR3 version which should be interesting as we have only tested 800mhz DDR2 versions in the past. We are one of the first sites to get a look at the GDDR3 version of this card.

CPU ATI 5550
Core Clock 550mhz
Memory Clock 1300mhz
Memory Size 1024MB
Memory Type GDDR3
Memory Interface 128bit
Interface PCI Express x 16 (PCI Express 2.1)
Card Dimensions 18.5×12.2×2.5cm (HxWxD)
Box Weight 0.16KG

    thats actually very nice, I like the DDR3 option, i was amazed sapphire were still selling cards with DDR2, even if its lower end. id go for this rather than sapphire tbh.
