NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Debuts: ASUS and MSINVIDIA continues to flesh out their DirectX 11 GPU line-up, this time with a relatively affordable offering that drops in right between the GeForce GTX 560 Ti and GeForce GTX 550. The aptly named GeForce GTX 560 (sans Ti) launching today is essentially a replacement for the popular GeForce GTX 460 1GB. It’s outfitted with a similar number of CUDA cores, texture units, and ROPs, but the updated transistor mix in the GTX 560’s GPU allows NVIDIA to crank up the clocks, and thus increase performance…

However, the Ti will always have a special place in all of our hearts for the cheap gamer.

Nice review.

I have the MSI GTX-560Ti now, and like it a lot. These new cards seem to be aimed squarely at the AMD Radeon HD6870 series cards, and as the write-up says, they out do them too. 

I wouldn't sell my XFX Radeon 6870 Black Edition just to buy one of these. I'd have to move up much higher on the food chain to make the change worthwhile to me. But I would recommend them to someone looking for maximum performance on a budget gamers build.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

You might want to think before bumping a post. I mean this is 7 months old...

Nice way to thank realneil though.
