GTX 470 sli vs GTX 560 sli - Page 3

post #21 of 27
560Ti's FTW!

Don't forget that the 470s are running warm and are power hungry...

560 Ti's are running much cooler, and the GTX500-series SCALES better in SLI mode than the GTX400-series....

470's would give you more performance, but 560's have a lot less power consumption and heat output. 560ti's would be the best option out of the three.

Umm... no on the scaling part, and they only run warm on reference cooling.

Who cares about power consumption? It's not THAT big of a difference. Heavily exaggerated.

As far as heat, my card is doing 850mhz and hangs between 58-65 in games. No problem there.

Really? At those clocks, mathematically speaking, the Ti should actually have the advantage everywhere. confused.gif
Off-Topic Math Stuffs (Click to show)
35.2 G.pixel/s fill for the Ti vs 34 on the 470 and 61.6 G.tex/s vs 47.6. I guess it could be the CUDA count, but (at least in theory) 384 shaders clocked at 2200MHz should be able to do more "work" than 448 at 1700MHz.

Aside from sythetic tessellation benches or situations where you're VRAM limited I'd be surprised to see it perform worse. *shrug*

On-Topic!
Since OP was comparing the vanilla 560 vs the 470 I'd agree 470s are def the way to go for performance.

Just be prepared to deal with the heat/noise. You're not going to run SLI 470s on air and get anywhere near 850 core without your top card flirting with the 90s.

TFII's are great aren't they? biggrin.gif But SLI (especially with internal exhaust cards) makes heat a much bigger factor. Depending on his case/airflow it could add another 10-15c to his top card's temps.

I hate Ti's. I remember the GTX 560 Ti that I bought. can't even overclock to 20mhz even if I bump the voltage. it's not even stable at stock clocks. and they were supposed to be great overclockers frown.gif sold it in a few days. it was killing me inside.

replaced it with a Palit GTX 470. performance was better. overclocked my gtx 470 to a modest 800/1600/2000. performance differnce was HUGE. the extra vram is nice too

I ran sli for a while with this card on top. Didn't effect heat much. You just have to make sure you have the proper airflow. Had to get rid of the other card for financial reasons, and the pcie slot died lol.

I used a spotcool fan to direct air from between the cards to the side fan which I had set up as exhaust.
