In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD FirePro V7800 are marginally better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition.

The GTX 550 Ti was released less than a year after the FirePro V7800, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The FirePro V7800 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 550 Ti, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro V7800 also has superior memory performance overall.

The FirePro V7800 has 29.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 550 Ti, which means that the memory performance of the FirePro V7800 is slightly better than the GTX 550 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Edition has 192 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro V7800 has 1440. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 550 Ti is 374 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro V7800 is 655. The FirePro V7800 having 281 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GTX 550 Ti performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The FirePro V7800 requires 138 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GTX 550 Ti.

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.
Ultra-fast performance, superb visual quality and massively parallel power in a single slot, high-end card. <r> The ATI FirePro V7800 is ideally suited for professionals who work on complex models and visual effects and need to meet the requirements of demanding visualization jobs. <r> The ATI FirePro V7800 features three independent video outputs (two DisplayPort and one dual-link DVI) with ATI Eyefinity technology and less than 150W max board power in a single slot.
