The GTX 560 Ti 448 has a long name and a big secret

The Tech Report just polished off their review of the Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448, the GF110 version of the GTX560.  Apart from the SM count the card is exactly the same as a GTX570, though it is priced lower at $300.  It seems that this card is intended for people playing above 1920x1200 resolutions, below that you are tossing away money on performance you will never need, for those with high pixel counts, the 560 Ti 448 shows off its stuff.  You will need another card in SLI if you want a multi-monitor setup and a pair of these should handle it reasonably well for a much lower cast than pairing GTX570 or 580s.

"The video card market has been surprisingly static in the second half of 2011, so Nvidia's recent introduction of a new product—the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448—was a happy occasion on several counts. First, it was a chance for something different to perhaps offer a little extra value to Christmas shoppers. Second, it was an opportunity for us to revisit some fancy new GPU testing methods with the latest games. Thus, we fired up the graphics test systems in Damage Labs, installed titles like Skyrim and Batman: Arkham City, and set to work. Finishing up this review has taken a little longer than we'd have liked, but we've managed to include some fresh insights on several fronts. Read on for our take."

Not interested in a mid-range card like this, but did Zotac ever nail the aesthetics on this thing. Freakin bulls-eye!

Some of us don't have hundreds of dollars to burn...

Zotac has a lot of potential, they take risks but it dosent always pay off, their known for their ITX boards but branch out, because a vid card for me is all about the pcb and cooler I'm hesitant to dive into their cards till they product a Tier 1 category leader like MSI has been.

I have a Gtx560 448 Core and it is nice. Lately I have been playing SWTOR and it plays flawlessly on the highest settings at 1900 x 1080. You can overclock and it is then faster than the 570.
