TechSpot: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Review

Although we've seen plenty of good things from Nvidia's latest GeForce GTX 570 and 580, both cards are too pricey for the mainstream bracket as many gamers prefer to spend less than $300 on a GPU upgrade. For those folks, AMD is currently offering the Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850 graphics cards, while Nvidia's solution consists of the 6-month-old GeForce GTX 460 768MB and 1GB.

It was only a matter of time until Nvidia added a mainstream performance graphics card to its GTX 500 series, and today we have that product. Known as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, this new graphics card will retail for $250, placing it in direct competition with the Radeon HD 6870.

But what's with the "Ti" nomenclature comeback? Maybe Nvidia is trying to send a subliminal message, wanting to put their new GeForce GTX 560 Ti in a similar light to the very well regarded but now ancient GeForce 4 Ti 4200. Whatever the case may be, you won't hear us complaining if they decide to deliver great value on a performance oriented mainstream card.

Those are not reference coolers, the reference cooler has one fan. The dual fan solutions used are better, I'd much prefer two low speed fans over one high speed fan

When your required to run 2 fans on a single GPU there's a problem that screams "Lets stop trying to make things faster and instead lets try to keep things cooler!"

They need a better way to reduce heat rather than slapping two fans on it -.-

damn... and i still thought that my 275GTX was pretty good.

or is it? this many generations change but are the specs of 560 that much greater then 275?

serious question

Looks like the perfect upgrade for my 9800GTX+...

too late just fitted a Gigabyte 460SOC, looks similar to the Ti - its a big card. My 9800GTX+ now stored away until i can be bothered to upgrade the wife's 8600GT

"AMD has chosen to cut the prices of its Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6950 cards today, while also outing an HD 6950 with just 1GB of onboard memory to serve as a direct competitor to NVIDIA's latest."

So no worries there
