HI guys and ladies, anyway my question is what the heck is a Radeon 5550. I looked on Google and a search result told me it was quietly launched by AMD in February, but it really doesn't show up on their website. Based on the numbering I would assume its a weaker chip than the 5570 but I would ask why is HIS and Sapphire making the cards when AMD isn't officially calling it that.

My guess is just a silent HTPC card capable of very light gaming.

My guess is that it is a crippled 5570 looking at this comparison http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|14-102-882^14-102-882-TS%2C14-102-892^14-102-892-TS%2C14-102-874^14-102-874-TS

Looks like it has DDR2 instead of DDR3 like the 5570. I would probably avoid the 5570 in that case.

Thank you all for replying, I think that this card's a joke as it's not powerful or low-profile, almost like a 4650.

It is low profile, and the HD4650 is low profile.
