[Anand] GTX 560 Ti 2Win Review

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
Quote:
So now in November of 2011 EVGA is back with their next 2Win card: the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win. Having replaced the GF104 GPUs with GF114 and tweaked the board to handle the extra power consumption, EVGA is giving it another shot. And this time they’re gunning for NVIDIA’s flagship single-GPU card, the GTX 580. Their proposition? For only a little more than the GTX 580 they can offer 30% better performance.
Source

It is priced at $520 with 1GB effective memory. It tromps the 580 in all of the gaming benchmarks except one, and even the 560 Ti SLI in some.

EDIT: I need to clarify something: The card has 2x1GB effective vram; one for each GPU. How it works is one GPU loads the textures and stuff in one vram chip, and that's mirrored to the second one because of the interlal SLI between the GPUs. This still results in 1GB effective memory.

Ok...

$520
Too expensive for the performance this card offers...
Why does it always take EVGA so long to make these cards? This card would've been way more attractive if it had been released a couple of months after the GTX 560Ti release.

At this point I'll just hold out for the 28nm GPUs anyway.

Just 1GB is a deal breaker.

If I had $500 to spend on a card I would seriously consider this.

I wouldn't there is only 1gb memory thats what is wrong with the 560 ti in general.
post #7 of 48
I really wish they used a 2GB version. That would have made this all the more worth it.
post #8 of 48
HEY! Go look at the source before arguing it's only a 1 Go version

Its a 2 X 1 Go DDR5 version

Seriously guys, lets read the article before we all jump to the conclusion that it only has 1GB of ram when it has two.
