"As you can see in the specs, the G550 is no graphics powerhouse. With only a ~125MHz/333MHz core and memory ratings, the G550 is by no means fast when compared to the 250MHz/460MHz of the GeForce2 Ultra and 200MHz/460MHz of the
GeForce3. (As an aside, the "~125MHz" is only a rough estimate because Matrox keeps that info secret.) But since this is not a gamers card, mind bending speed is of little concern; what it lacks in power it makes up for in features."
