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?"
