Simple Question about GTX 560 ti

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 560 ti EVGA Superclocked addition. Well, I want to buy another one and go SLI, but when I went to buy it, I noticed 2 of them. a regular one for 249.99 and a "fermi" one for 259.99 on newegg. I believe I have the regular one, but my question is, can I buy the Fermi one, and still do SLI? or do they have to be EXACTLY the same? I really don't know the difference except...

Regular

Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core Clock: 822MHz
Shader Clock: 1645MHz
Stream Processors: 384 Processor Cores
Model #: 01G-P3-1560-KR
Item #: N82E16814130634
Return Policy: VGA Standard Return Policy

Fermi

Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core Clock: 850 Mhz (v.s. 822 Mhz reference)
Shader Clock: 1700 Mhz (v.s. 1645 Mhz reference)
Stream Processors: 384 Processor Cores
Model #: 01G-P3-1561-AR
Item #: N82E16814130604
Return Policy: VGA Standard Return Policy

Very small differences...


Thanks for the help guys

I think so, as long as you overclock or underclock one of the cards to match their clock speeds.


Interesting how they charge $10 more for a minor OC.

you can use any card as long as it is still a GTX560Ti

The entire line of 500 series cards are FERMI 48nm fabrication pcb's.

One is their stock clock and the other is slightly over clocked by the vendor. Some people who don't get into this kind of stuff buy the over clocked card by the vendor.

Same thing for the 580, 570's series. One is stock clock (also known/called 'vanilla') and the other is SC (Super Clocked). I originally purchased the SC version because there is some rumor that the vendor picks and puts the better VRAM chips onto those boards because they are guaranteeing it at a higher clock under warranty. I've come to learn it doesn't really make a difference, but nothing confirmed. The vanilla cards can over clock just as well as the SC cards.

It's OK to buy one of each and SLI them. All your doing anyway is setting them both to the same clocks using EVGA Percision software.

Good luck and congrats on your purchase. Your going to take that little bad boy and when it's SLI'd it will be a beast of performance gaming.
