Default AMD's HD 5550 & 5570 - Now Equipped with GDDR5 Goodness

To retain modest pricing, it's common to see lower-end graphics cards equipped with either DDR2 or DDR3. That design choice, though, can have a major effect on performance, something that's proven twice over with AMD's Radeon HD 5550 and HD 5570, both of which have just been upgraded with a move to GDDR5 memory.

Not sure how much of a different memory can make on a lower-end GPU? Well, now you don't have to wonder anymore. Check out our look at AMD's latest releases here, and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
