Disappointed in the GTX560TI Hawk... wrong expectations?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I've just gotten a GTX560TI Hawk (TwinFrozr III) and I'm fairly disappointed, but it could just be bad expectations.

I had a GTX460 Cyclone 768MB which was honestly fantastic. Cheap, small, ran BF2 with 8xAA at over 45fps average... amazing.

I discerned a little improvements with the 560 but nothing drastic, which is ok. However while the 460 overclocked like a champ, going from 950 to 980Mhz on the core with the 560 makes it crash. 30Mhz more...

Did I get a bad one? What scores are you getting with your Hawks?

Well, if you got a 560 non Ti version its just an overclocked 460...

From a 460, your next step should have been a 570.

And since the only difference between your 460 768 and the 560 is really.

a. Stock Clocks. 560 ti has it higher
b. More ram, of course. 768 to 1GB
c. The 560 TI has just 48 more shaders than the GTX 460.

At same clocks, not counting the RAM, a 460 and 560 should perform similar, 5% similar.

If I were you, I'd return the 560, swap it for a 570, or get another 460 768 and SLI.

Aye I have a TI, sorry I forgot to specify. With the latest drivers.

I considered the 570 but they run over 300 euros here, the Hawk was 200 euros. I'm just not ready to pay this much for a graphics card in fact.

I can't SLI with my mobo and with BF3 coming out I'd be better off with something else... I'll consider a 6950 Hawk which is 50 euros cheaper than a GTX570. This should do the trick, hopefully.

I guess I was just hoping for a little overclocking headroom

Return the 560. Get the 570. I wouldn't even begin to consider a 6950 for a "new game".

Look for a used 480 if moneys an issue. A 560 ti from a 460 isn't a big leap.

Just raise the Vcore to 1.1 and raise the Core to 1000mhz !
You'll have the same performance as a gtx 570

My 6950 unlocked, at 920 core clock and 1375 memory clock is really fast what are you talking about?

Get another GTX460 for a cheap price, that's what I did and it performs very good.
