KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 White edition and Anarchy review -
Features and specifications
Features and specifications
So the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is in fact the GF114 GPU, it is tweaked a little to allow higher clock speeds with presumably a lower power draw. The GeForce GTX 560 Ti has 384 shader processor cores, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide memory interface that connects to four 64-bit controllers each with 256MB memory tied to them, so that's 1 GB of memory for the product released today.
The new GPU has holstered a rather high GPU clock speed, with 822 MHz core, 1644 MHz on the shader cores, and 4000 MHz (GDDR5 effective datarate) memory, churning out a very decent 128 GB/s in memory bandwidth.
Now, most of all this sounds familiar eh? Yeah... remember the GF104 being used in the GeForce GTX 460 series? The new GF114 is in fact the basis of that IC, yet now with all shader processors enabled.
For the bigger part of the specifications the two feel similar when it comes to shader processor count, memory bus and clock frequencies, the GTX 560 definitely will be a good chunk faster and, as you'll learn, a heck of an overclocker.

If you look closely at the SM (Streaming Multiprocessor) partitions, then you can see and calculate that the 336 shader processor based GF104 on the GeForce GTX 460 has in fact seven SM partitions. 7 are enabled = 336 Shader processors. The GF114 GPU has 384 shader processors, and has that last available SM cluster enabled.
Okay, so the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is still based on a 40nm fabrication node, still has 1.95 billion transistors and thus looks and feels like the GTX 460, yet now with 48 shader processors and accompanying PolyMorph Engine added, an extra 8 texture units and sure, much faster clock frequencies. So is the GF114 in fact a GF104? Yep, it sure is.
All cards derived from and based on this GPU will be based on a dual or even triple-slot cooling design based on what the AIB/AIC partners prefer and come with two dual-link DVI and a mini-HDMI connector. HDMI will again pass sound through, including bit streaming support for Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master. Being a mid-range product, only 2-way SLI will be allowed and thus you'll only see a single SLI finger/connector on the PCB. Okay, the next stop will be an extensive photo-shoot of today's products.
In this article we review the KFA2 GeForce GTX 760 EX OC edition, this particular model comes with a dual-slot two cooling solution. That boils down to a silent product versus and more than excellent cooling performance. KFA2 offers the card factory slightly overclocked at some pretty impressive clock frequencies. Join us in this review and let's see if the 259 USD Gaming edition model will be worth it for you.
KFA2 GeForce GTX 770 EX OC review
In this review we take the KFA2 GeForce GTX 770 EX OC edition for a benchmarkin' test-drive. This model graphics card comes with a factory overclock and a new design cooler with dual 90mm fans. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
