No, that's just wrong. The 460 SEs would scale better than the 560 Ti. For the same family, the fewer the cores the higher the scaling. 460s scale better than 560 Tis and 460 SE's scale better than regular 460s.

Looking closer at that review, with the settings and games they used it's very possible they just hit the VRAM wall. They ran Metro2033 on enthusiast with 4X AA which will use more than 1GB VRAM. Then again what can we expect from Tom's.

You still haven't addressed your wild about the 570 being an "upgrade."




I have 460s, they don't stutter.

1. I said I wasn't sure about the GTX570 performing better than two GTX460 SE in SLI. Go read my post again. I didn't state any of that as a fact, much the contrary. I did however say that the experience will be better because there will be no microstuttering.

Anyway, microsuttering varies with game and with specific configuration and monitor; your personal experience is not necessarily proof of anything and you may not find it as annoying as others too.


2.Your argument doesn't make any sense. First you take out the quote where they mention the GTX560 (non Ti), which is essentially a faster clocked GTX460, and then you go on about saying that the

"the 460 SEs would scale better than the 560 Ti". What does scaling have to do with Microstuttering ?

Again, there's no real evidence of microstuttering with the 460 except this Tom's article which uses high settings that go above 1GB VRAM. The page in the review on microstuttering isn't very specific about their methodology to detect microstuttering. It was just a summary.

Sorry I misunderstood you on the second point. Please explain how the "frame variations" would be worse with the 460 SE's compared to a 560.

Like I said earlier get a 570 only if you're gonna get a 2nd one eventually or wait for 600 series maybe even 7000 series.
