    The 550 boosts to 1206, not 1750 (that's the memory clock).

    Had a quick look there and on Sapphire's site... No actual mention of price.

    More research than I was willing to do, but thanks.
    Just expected more details on this excellence to be provided in the same article than simply being told I can afford it!!

    Sadly, reducing from 1 click to 0 involves embedding images of another website on this one, it's bad juju. But you're welcome. Also..

    You CAN AFFORD IT.

    No sign of the 560 though for some reason. I'd argue that, price-permitting, that could be the most interesting card of the line-up. (I'd appreciate the 550 2GiB if it were priced more appropriately, say £59.99 or £69.99.)

    TBH, I don't mind it not being in the article, but if Sapph themselves are telling me I can afford it, I expect them to tell me how affordable it is, so I can figure out if I can get an appropriate monitor to go with it.
    As is, I've already upgraded to a 980Ti with waterblock and new monitor, which is why I wasn't interested enough to look further... but I actually couldn't have quite afforded/justified the cost (with the necessary waterblock) of upgrading to one of these before the 980, even with the 8GB DDR5 card!

    Well, as usual I would guess that retailers/distributors set the price rather than Sapphire, but an estimate isn't beyond them. :/

    RX 560 comes out in early May. My thoughts are the same with RX 550. I wonder how that little card runs, especially on older AAA games.
