In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon X800 XL.

The GTX 550 Ti was released over three years more recently than the Radeon X800 XL, and so the GTX 550 Ti is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Radeon X800 XL when running the latest games.

The GTX 550 Ti has 768 MB more video memory than the Radeon X800 XL, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 550 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The Radeon X800 XL has 26.9 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 550 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon X800 XL is slightly better than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X800 XL has 16. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 374 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X800 XL is 4. The GTX 550 Ti having 370 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 550 Ti delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon X800 XL.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition is a special edition of the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. See the page of the standard version for more information.
The features include better cooling and an increase on the core-clock from 900MHz to 975MHz.
Benchmarks indicate the performance is 4.5% better when compared to the reference card.
Some modern demanding games will run at the highest settings using a 1080p resolution but the largest part will have to be played with a 720p resolution to be played optimally.
This Graphics Card needs to be paired with a decent Quad Core CPU.
The Radeon X800 'R430'-based 110 nanometer series was introduced at the end of 2004 along with ATI's new X850 cards. The X800 was designed to replace the position X700 XT failed to secure, with 12 pipelines and a 256-bit RAM bus. The card more than surpassed the 6600GT with performance similar to that of the GeForce 6800. A close relative, the new X800 XL, was positioned to dethrone NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 GT with higher memory speeds and a full 16 pipelines to boost performance. R430 was unable to reach high clock speeds, being mainly designed to reduce the cost per GPU, and so a new top-of-the-line core was still needed. The new high-end R4x0-generation arrived with the X850 series, equipped with various core tweaks for slightly higher performance than the 'R420'-based X800 series. The 'R480'-based X850 line was available in 3 forms: the X850 Pro, the X850 XT, and the X850 XT Platinum Edition, and was built on the reliable high-performance 130 nm Low-K process.
