Product imageSapphire announces a new graphics card in its range for the Radeon HD series. With a fanless heatsink design Sapphire introduces the Radeon HD 5550 Ultimate.

The card utilises 1GB of DDR2 memory at 800MHz effective and a 550MHz core. It comes packed with 320 stream processors and all the DirectX 11 features of its bigger brothers.

Mainly aimed at multimedia application and home theatre PC’s the card will still be able to play most games on lower settings moderately well.

In all of the SAPPHIRE HD 5000 series the UVD has been enhanced to be able simultaneously to decode two 1080p HD video streams and to be able to display HD video in high quality with Windows Aero mode enabled. HDMI capability has also been upgraded to HDMI 1.3a with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support.
