NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core GPU Review

F1 2010
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance


F1 2010

Though Codemasters still continues to torture us with their ridiculously complicated labyrinth of game menus, we’ve found ourselves coming back to one of their titles for a taste of bleeding-edge DX11 benchmarking. F1 2010 is their latest racing simulation and like Dirt 2, it sports impressive visuals with DX11 support. “Ultra” settings for shadow effects and post processing elements like depth of field then become available to the gamer and in turn, crank up the workload on the graphics subsystem. The game engine also makes use of multi-core processors for higher performance on top-end systems. We tested the game configured with its Ultra graphics options at resolutions of 1920x1200 and 2560x1600.

The performance trend in the F1 2010 benchmark looked much like the one from LP2 on the previous page. The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core Limited Edition was once again faster than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and a touch slower than the GeForce GTX 570. But the new GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core Limited Edition card's performance was much closer to the higher-end 570 than it was to the original GeForce GTX 560 Ti.

zotac is a awesome card maker. they have really good warranties. If i were in the market for a new GPU ( i have a xfx 6950) i would just spend the money on the 570 or 6970.

if only a different colorscheme (i know its their style/scheme).

I'm not comfortable with Zotac either. (past experiences)

But all is not lost, as EVGA is making one of these Hyper enabled 560's too.

@realneil, MSI is making one too. I've been gravitating towards MSI lately. Here is a review of theirs, I like their twin frozr III cooling solution.

i have been nothing but impressed with MSI, granted my experience is mostly with their motherboards.

i tend to stick with evga gpus. i like the blacked out style much better anyway (just need some black pcb)

Sweet... Now if only someone was foolish enough to put 2GBs on that; then we'd have a deal-breaker of a card.

I mean EVGA came up with a 2.5GB 570 card (which came with a 560Ti cooler), why can't NVIDIA for at once at least include 2GBs of memory on their reference cards; I mean ATI has them on their cards, and these things with 1.2GB of memory aren't really that future-proof; even if you SLI them. SLI duplicates the scene to both of the cards and then renders them, meaning that you're still going to have 1.2GBs of memory no matter how many cards you put in, and when your playing a graphics intense game, that 1.2GBs of memory can get used up pretty quickly.

I've never tried Zotac before, but from many reviews I've read they seem to be a good brand. But..would it be worth getting only 1 of these cards?? SLI in the future wouldn't work out too well if you wanted to throw in another cause they would be gone!

"The performance is just about the same as the GTX 570, so its a good card. I was expecting the price to be lower, but the 570's have gone up a bit to an average of $339, so this card has a good price point for now, and having it capable of 3way SLI was a smart idea."
