Sapphire HD 4550

The Sapphire HD 4550 is a tiny little card. Around half the size of the bigger cards like the 4850 we reviewed recently. It has a blue PCB, with a small petal style cooler in it’s centre.

It’s made up of a multi-finned blue heatsink, with a 60mm, black bladed fan in it’s centre.

The 4550 also features solid capacitors which have a longer life and increased stability.

To power the fan there’s a mini 3pin connector on the card itself. No need to have a spare motherboard fan power connector.

The rear simply features a single DVI port, one VGA and one SVideo.

The back of the card is very low profile, so there will definitely be no mounting issues with this one.

The RAM chips are visible on the back as well as the front. They’re obviously Samsung made, which is always a nice sign.
