EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win - a siamese twin in disguise
The Christmas season has slowly started and for the first time ever, NVIDIA really doesn't seem to release anything new. As such their board partners are refreshing their own lineup. We've see some new GTX 560 cards, some 570 updates and sure, there will follow some other models as well -- but pretty much that's it.
There is one exception to that rule though, much like their 460 model EVGA has pursued something different. See two GeForce GTX 560 Ti cards setup in SLI offer a lot of performance for roughly 400 EUR / 450 USD, and with that in mind EVGA has started developing a custom PCB with two GTX 560 TI GPU's on-board.
With games like Battlefield 3, Skyrim and Batman: Arkham City and Crysis 2 DX11, that might be a terrific alternative in the Q4 holiday season for many.
The newfangled card is called the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win. A card with cool looks, a pair of GF114 GPUs and heck it even comes a little overclocked for ya, as the core frequency clocks in at 850 MHz whereas a default GTX 560 Ti is ticking and tacking away at 822 MHz.
Internally we have spotted an NF200 switch chip to provide the necessary data links in-between the GPUs, and yes .. that means internally they are setup in SLI mode. The cooling system consists our of three fans, based on a heatpipe heatsink. With a TDP of roughly 350 Watt you'll be needing two 8-pin power leads from your power supply, which should be a 700W Watt PSU minimum we feel.
Alongside the new card, we noticed, also a new warranty policy is introduced. At default this card comes with three years of warranty. That certainly is a change in the previous life-time warranty and step-up policy's, but EVGA does however allow for an extended warranty purchase to the tune of $20 for five years and $50 for a decade of warranty.
Will the card be powerful enough, sure it is .. it will even beat the GTX 580 hands down by a good 20% to 25%. Well, let's have peek and then head onwards into the review.
