NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core GPU Review

42 thumbs up

Alien vs. Predator
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance


Alien vs. Predator

The Alien vs. Predator benchmark makes use of the advanced Tessellation, screen space ambient occlusion and high-quality shadow features, available with DirectX 11. In addition to enabling all of the aforementioned DirectX 11 related features offered by this benchmark, we also switched on 4X anti-aliasing along with 16X anisotropic filtering to more heavily tax the graphics cards being tested.

Our final benchmark doesn't reveal anything new. The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448-Core Limited Edition card finishes ahead of the original GeForce GTX 560 Ti, but behind the GeForce GTX 570.

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."
