GeForce GTX 560 Ti Review Roundup - Galaxy, MSI and Palit Compared
The Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 Ti GC
Earlier in the week we saw the release of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU - the new offering competes with the Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6950 1GB from AMD and in general falls right between them. You should definitely check out our first review of the GTX 560 Ti as it will give you an overview of the GPU technology and how it fits into the market with the AMD offerings as well as NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 460.
The new GTX 560 Ti is based on the GF114 GPU and is essentially the
same core as the GF104 when looked at under that magical "diagram"
This should look very familiar to you
if you have read our GTX 460 review linked above. While the GTX 460 had
only 336 CUDA cores with one of the SMs (simultaneous multiprocessors),
the new GTX 560 Ti uses all 8 of them for a total of 384 total CUDA cores.
The process continues to be tweaked and as a result the GTX 560 Ti
offers efficiency improvements as well as performance gains over the GTX
Today we are looking at set of three of the retail cards: one from Galaxy, MSI and Palit. For those that want the 4-minute video overview of these cards, check out the clip below, and for those that want ALL of the details, images, tests, continue on down the page!
Galaxy, as evident by its recent Razor and WHDI releases on the GTX 460 design, continues to be one of the few very innovative partners of NVIDIA. We don't have anything THAT unique here today if only because the card is so new.
