Palit GeForce GTX 560 Sonic Platinum review -
NVIDIA has been readying a new SKU based on the GF114 GPU: the GeForce GTX 560, yes correct... without the "Ti" extension. It's being released to compete with AMD's Radeon HD 6790 and 6850 series primarily.
AMD has unveiled that affordable Radeon HD 6790 a few weeks ago which closes in on that GTX 550/560 segment fairly well. The GeForce GTX 560 has 336 CUDA/Shader cores enabled which is the very same configuration as last years GF104-based GTX 460, it has 56 Texture memory units and quite lovely for a product in this price segment, a full 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface holding 1 GB of memory.
So pretty much this hints towards last years GeForce GTX 460, yet based on a new fabrication node, clock speeds and overclocking potential is simply much higher, a known fact on the GF11x GPUs in general.
Another factor will be better temperatures and a hopefully better TDP. Well, we loved the GTX 460 for what it was alright, armed with improved tweaking potential and a much better price, let's see what the card series brings to the table.
The GeForce GTX 560 we'll review today comes from Palit, of course they send in their Palit GTX560 Sonic Platinum (OC version) which offers about 10% performance higher than the non-OC GTX560 straight from the box.
Let's have a peek at the reborn GTX 460... the all new GTX 560 without the "Ti" label, and then head onwards into the review.
Guru3D and Palit once again partner up to get you some cool hardware. Palit this week released the GeForce GTX 770 JetStream edition graphics card which offers high-end performance whilst being totally silent.

Palit GeForce GTX 770 Jetstream review
In this review and benchmark the Palit GeForce GTX 770 Jetstream. This graphics card comes with massive factory overclock and the new 3-slot -3 fan cooler. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is sitting in-between the GeForce GTX 680 and GeForce GTX 780 , very chill 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.
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.
Palit GeForce GTX 660 Ti Jetstream review
In this review we'll look at the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from Palit, it's their all beefed up version, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti JetStream version. The GTX 660 Ti again has been equipped with a JetStream series cooler yet which remains a 3-slot design. It runs at a core clock frequency of 1006 MHz, has a boost frequency of 1085 MHz and the effective memory data rate (192-bit) is 6108 MHz.
