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!
