Coming back to the dark side: 560Ti

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I am getting a GTX560Ti next week. I know it is about the power of a 5870 (if not a little better). So now the questions are:

What kind of PPD should I expect?
Do these overclock really well?
How much of an improvement could I get with an overclock close to 900+ MHz core?
What aftermarket coolers work with these things? I am getting a stock EVGA one.

well if you get a 560Ti they are really overclocking monsters really if you get a good card you can OC a 560Ti to nearly full 570 speeds, people were able to hit 5000mhz on the memory clocks which is the maximum the memory chip can hold. i wouldn't really say it's 5870 specs but rather close to the 6950 1gb model or equal to it.

get the Twin Frozer several people had great luck OCin those to nearly full 570 speeds ^-^ .

good luck my friend ^-^

come to the darkside lord, we got cookies.

I couldn't justify getting a 560 when 460s can be had for like $100 less now.. Aren't 560s only like 20% better at best?
post #4 of 31
If you haven't ordered that EVGA already, I recommend you get the Twin Frozr II. I can hit a max overclock of 1000MHz core (I didn't dare put my voltage over 1.087v), and it stays cool. I've never seen it get above 68C at a 1GHz core overclock.

16k PPD on GPU3.

As for performance improvement, I saw a near 10% increase with my current overclock of 950MHz core in Crysis.

1000mhz/2000mhz/4450mhz would give ya starter 570 speeds

1050/2100/4800 will give ya 570 speeds if not just a tad(.5%) more

and should still keep it cool

the 560ti at 1920x1080 is more around the 6950 range. in alot of games it kept up or beat the 6950. I wouldnt say its around a 5870 TBH

A quote from an interview:
"The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is based on the same architecture as the GeForce GTX 460 but shares the same transistor-level performance and power efficiency improvements that we introduced in the GeForce GTX 580. On average, it's about 33% faster than the GTX 460 and 21% better in performance per watt. This puts its performance about half way between the GTX 460 and GTX 580."

If it were free, as would I... however, upgrading wouldn't be even remotely justified (and I'd rather just get a second 460 if anything).

I just got the ASUS GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II to...uhm "replace" my XFX HD 6850.

I bought the non-TOP version since it was not available here so it came stock at 830/1000(4000). The DirectCU II fan is simply amazing. Quiet and efficient!

I overclocked the card to 950/1100(4400) on stock voltage and I'm still under 60 degrees while gaming (Rift, Civ5, Batman, Mafia II, DoW2 Retribution...) and I feel I have lots of room left to OC it even further!

Get one with a custom HSF like the MSI, Gigabyte or ASUS, they're worth it!
