Gigabyte GeForce GTX 560 Ti SOC review -
Final Words & Conclusion
Final Words & Conclusion
The GeForce GTX 560 Ti SOC (GV-N560SO-1GI) is a beautiful thing really. It is a nice to look at graphics card, it remains to be very silent, it's pre- (factory ) overclocked for you real high and that falls within warranty and next to that, it chunks out serious performance. At the current baseline clock frequencies this card is battling with cards like the Radeon HD 6950 and GeForce GTX 570 ... and that's surely not a bad position to be in for a card like this.
With that level of game rendering performance you can address any modern game up-to say a monitor resolution of 1920x1200 combined with 4x Antialiasing and 16x Anisotropic filtering. Power consumption isn't really an issue either, albeit higher due to the default factory overclock, we calculated that the product consumes roughly 195 Watt when it's stressed badly in a game. Mind you these are peak levels, the average power consumption will tell another story.
Noise wise you will not complain either as well, there just isn't any. So with that in mind we add features like 3D capability, CUDA and PhysX. Then overall you'll notice that the GTX 560 Ti series really offer a lot.
We do hope to see good volume availability of the product with a fair price, as the reality also bodes us to say that you can pick up a R6950 for 269 EUR and a GTX 570 for 320 EUR.
But sure performance wise you can't complain about anything here as all modern DX11 and lower games will play absolutely beautifully on the GeForce GTX 560 Ti SOC, and that's with decent image quality settings enabled at say 4xAA and 16xAF + very high in-game quality settings.
If Gigabyte plays their cards right and positions this product 15% under reference GeForce GTX 570 pricing then this card might be the one for you to opt. It's a whole lot of fun, offers great performance, remains silent yet kicks a whole lotta a$$ in gaming. If the price is right, very much recommended, we like to hand out a top pick award for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti SOC from Gigabyte.
We have one more reference review for you, this is the Gigabyte Radeon R9-290X. As stated it is a reference design of the original Radeon R9-290X. These cards are little beasts. As such this in-depth ...
