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.
