A new trick from an old card, five displays from a single GTX560 Ti

The GTX560Ti MDT X5 (Multi Display Technology) can handle sending signal to 5 displays simultaneously which is something that no NVIDIA card could do before.  AMD had the only GPUs which could handle multiple displays, you needed an SLI setup to manage NVIDIA Surround.  [H]ard|OCP were lucky enough to get to play with this $330 mid-range GPU that knows a new trick and were suitably impressed by its ability to provide good gaming performance on three 1080p monitors.  They also mention a GeForce 210 model that can handle up to four monitors for the non-gamer.

"With the new Galaxy GeForce GTX560Ti MDT X5 video card it is possible to output to 5 displays even though this is a single GPU video card. Enjoy NVIDIA multi-display spanned resolution gaming without the need for two cards! Can this GTX 560 Ti based video card stand up in the latest games when spanned across three displays? We are surprised."

The vanilla GTX560 arrives, does it fit well between the GTX460 and the GTX 560 Ti?

The GTX560 Ti did not receive glowing rewards, not because it didn't perform but because the price was too high compared to the Radeon cards it competes against.  Now with the vanilla card available at $200, and with higher peak pixel fill rates, higher rasterization rates, and more memory bandwidth than the Ti version the card is not simply squeezed into an already tight market segment but actually has some interesting abilities.  The similarly priced Asus Radeon HD 6870 TOP can't keep up with the new GTX560, but the gap is not huge.  The Tech Report recommends waiting a bit before considering this card, they feel it is likely to drop below $200 which would make it a very good deal indeed.

"Say hello to Nvidia's latest $199 graphics card. Is this a worthwhile step up from the GeForce GTX 460 1GB, and is it a better deal than AMD's Radeon HD 6870?"

Feeding the GTX560 Red Bull; introducing the GTX 560 Ti Hawk

Subject: Graphics Cards | April 26, 2011 - 11:55 AM |
Tagged: gtx560 ti, hawk, overclocked GPU, msi

NVIDIA's GTX 550 Ti did not do so well when Ryan reviewed it, as it simply wasn't fast enough to justify the price is being sold at.  Now its bigger brother, the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk has made an appearance on the [H]ard|OCP review bench.  Sticking with their usual milieu with the Hawk series, the only original part on this MSI card is the Fermi silicon, the PCB, GDDR5 and cooler are all specifically designed and implemented for this series of card. Can the overclock match the HD6950 which costs only $20 more?

"Microstar's latest Hawk video card is here, packing a highly overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Can its enhanced PCB and cooler fend off the Radeon HD 6950's falling prices? Does it actually offer anything over a standard GeForce GTX 560 Ti? The end results are incredible and price drops have completely changed the landscape."
