We're not the least bit afraid to overclock our hardware on our own, and heck, sometimes that's half the fun. But if a vendor wants to take on that same responsibility, then more power to them. That's the decision Palit made with its new, long-winded "GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo Limited Edition" graphics card (that's a 20-syllable card, in case you're wondering).

Palit didn't go crazy overclocking the 560 Ti, but did bump the engine clock from 822MHz to 835MHz, and the 1GB of GDDR5 memory from 4008MHz to 4100MHz. That's enough to push the memory bandwidth from 128GB/s to 131.2GB/s.



The other distinguishing feature here is the Twin Light Turbo dual-fan cooler. It's a stout heatsink with four heatpipes and is supposedly super quiet, generating sound less than 10 decibels, according to Palit. No word yet on how much it costs or when it will be available.

Palit Microsystems Ltd, the leading graphics card manufacturer, today launched the factory-overclocked GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo Limited Edition. Based on the new Fermi 2.0 architecture, GTX560Ti features boosted GPU performance and is equipped with the outstanding "Twin Light Turbo" cooler. Palit customized design GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo brings you the optimum gaming experience.

Back in September 2010, Palit first released the new Twin Light Turbo edition on GTS 450, available only in the US. This limited edition GTS 450 Twin Light Turbo received unanimous praise. Many exciting games will be released starting in October 2011, such as Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. These games feature the extreme gaming effects: PhysX technology, 3D Vision and DX11 Tessellation, and avid gamers need powerful GPU performance to enjoy a great gaming experience. Continuing with the "Twin Light Turbo" reputation, Palit specially designed the GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo Limited Edition to fulfill gamers' needs.

With its "Twin Light Turbo" Dual Fan Cooler, it is designed with 4 heat pipes which dissipate heat from the GPU to the large fins above and keep GTX 560 Ti running at optimum performance. Palit GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo also provides the silent thermal solution and compares with the noise of the environment. Palit GTX560Ti Twin Light Turbo generates sound less than 10 dB, even when enthusiasts play with hard loading game condition. This allows gamers to enjoy the gaming sound effects while barely feeling the noise from the Twin Light Turbo.

Built on an enhanced GF114 chip with Fermi 2.0 architecture, Palit GTX 560 Ti Series offers greater performance per watt. Play with GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo on the upcoming hottest titles and create the ultimate gaming atmosphere. Use Palit GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo for blistering performance, and enjoy a maximum resolution monitor with Palit GTX 560 Ti 2GB or have fun with the compact size Palit GTX 560 Ti. The Palit GTX 560 Ti Series offers a brilliant gaming experience.

"ROFL, "GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Light Turbo Limited Edition" , say that 5 times fast. Nice card, Two 2GB version in Sli would make a heck of a gaming machine, quiet too."

Well... Another day, another special GTX 560 Ti cup.

I agree that there should be a 2GB version but even if there were, it'd still be disappointing because the GTX 560 Ti.

Still, good card; expect the wait to be long and hopefully the card experience to be top notch. (Palit has been known for making custom-PCB designed cards that everybody likes so it should sell like hotcakes.)

I really like the look of this card, though I am looking for something with a little more power :) Of course there is nothing to say that it can't be overclocked a bit more.

Stashing the fans behind the heatsink fins is what makes it quiet?

This is kinda cool looking and as someone else mentioned, two of them would make for some good gaming.

They did the same thing with their Phantom cards (none of which you can buy in the US.) I'm guessing their unique design allows for heat to rise up and for improved cooling performance... At least until they were put in real world performance tests where it was shown it couldn't overclock as well as it's top fan companions.

Still, I'm at least looking forward to reading a review or two.
