Alright, let's have a peek at the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 core WindForce 3 model in specific, quite a mouthful naming wise. Below, you can see the card. The card has 1.28 GB 320-bit GDDR5 memory tied to the GPU. This memory is clocked at an effective data-rate of 3800 MHz, that's the reference clock frequency.
The design is stylish and good looking alright, we like that. Blue PCB, which is roughly 11.5-inches (29cm) in length. This card will eat up two PCI slots. Sitting on top of the GPU is the heatpipe based cooler which on top of that, it has three fans blowing air towards that heatpipe based cooler with multiple thick 8mm pipes.
Power consumption wise we estimate a needed 210 Watt to feed the GPU when peaking, add some overhead for overclocking and the rest of your PC and we feel that a 550 Watt power supply should be your bare minimum. Bare in mind that you need to connect two 6-pin PEG PCIe graphics power connectors for this board. The power connectors have been seated along the top side.
The PCIe slot can deliver roughly 75 Watt, the two 6-pin connectors are rated 75W each, so that's a good 225 Watt at your disposal for graphics.
As you can see, the card is equipped with four display connectors, two dual-link DVI connectors and a mini-HDMI (1.4) and display port connector. The cooler tries to exhaust hot air through the upper mesh but realistically 90% of your heat will be dumped inside the PC though, so please do make sure you have a properly ventilated chassis.
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.
MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST OC review
In this article we review the MSI GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST OC edition review with that OC for a factory tweak. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. Overall an interesting product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
Palit GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC edition review
For this review we test and benchmark the Palit GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC edition. The product comes customized with their own PCB design, a dual-fan cooler, 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked.
