FUD Zilla reports VGA makers have started shipping Radeon HD 5500 series graphics cards with GDDR5 memory.
This really isn’t big news in itself, but there is one interesting fact to consider. As of now, the Radeon HD 5550 is available in DDR2, DDR3, GDDR4 and GDDR5 flavours. The HD 5570 also got the GDDR5 treatment and it should sell for around €80 with the new, faster memory. Of course, we’d still advise you to go for the good old HD 4850 instead, as it sells in the same price range.
