ZOTAC Launches GeForce GTX 560 Ti Graphics Card

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560 Ti is the GPU of the week, with a tempting price point and great frame rate results to go with it. Companies are already lining up to offer new graphics cards based on that new core, and Zotac is right there on the bandwagon. The company has today let loose their newest GPU, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 Ti.

Based on our review of the core, you should know just about what to expect. There's an 822MHz engine clock, 384 unified shaders, a 1645MHz shader clock, 1GB of DDR5 memory, a 256-bit memory interface, 4000MHz memory clock, two dual-link DVI ports, a PCIe 2.0 interface, NVIDIA's CUDA/3D Vision support, and the company's own Boost Premium software. There's also a copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, or, a download voucher -- which is just as good, right?

No pricing details are given, but it should begin shipping soon for about the same as those other 560 Ti cards that are out there competing.
