I have a GTX 560 ti. It's a nice card. I finish one of the 1,380 credit GPU WU's in about 1.5-2h. I wish I had two smile.gif

But, I was upgrading from a 275, so I don't know if it's really worth it to upgrade from the 460.

I promised some feedback when i got this card installed, so here it is...

On my system, this is not the killer card for folding Id hoped for frown.gif

The GTX 560 Ti SOC on stock clocks (950 / 1900) with the 68xx WUs where getting an average of 13k PPD, as opposed to the GTX 470 (778 / 1556) of 15k PPD. I run it over the April FaT so I trust I was getting a variety of WUs.

I attempted to OC the card to 1000 / 2000 but testing for stability was problematic as the temps would hit 100c with errors within a couple of minutes on OOCT. These tests where cut short.

Folding on these clocks would result in temps of about 76c (ambient 23c) and I had a few Unstable machine errors, especially with the 6801 WUs. So back down to stock again.

I did notice that the 560 Ti have 384 Cuda cores while the GTX 470 has 448. I wondering if this is why there is such a difference in the PPD?

As to the heat situation. Im thinking I may remove the Arctic Cooling Extreme Plus from my 470 and install it on the 560 Ti (AC states its compatible) and get a VR005 heatsink kit. This may tame its heat problems.

So, in short... Ill be running the GTX 470 for the Chimp Challenge. After that Ill mess around with the cooling solution for the GTX 560 Ti.

As a gaming card though its fantastic. Im a little dissapointed that is falls over on the folding side but live and learn.

definitely the issue when it comes to the folding. More Cores = more work being done.

But gaming you are right... the 560ti is very strong. at 1080p its nearly as strong as the 570

On reflection, even if I can OC it and tame the heat, I probably wont get much more than 14k PPD out of it.

I might just leave it as is and sell it.
