Heat and power consumption I believe. The only reason i got one over the 5 series of cards is that i already had watercooling set up.

run it on water or put a different heatsink on it if your up to modding it.

if its a card with a good heatsink on it like the msi twin frozr 2 then youll be able to push it a bit without any modifications. a reference 560....not much at all. It will overclock, but how long until it overheats

The 480 is a class above the 560 Ti. Not sure why you'd be comparing the two. headscratch.gif

Not that high. The 480 is a little behind the 570 @stock after all, and the 560 Ti can match/exceed that level of performance at 950-1GHz core.

For example, this review of the original 1GHz Gigabyte SOC 560 Ti actually has it ahead of the 480 in everything but Metro.

plus a few other minor things, like the fact a 480 is a beastly card and wont fit in alot of cases (also, alot of people buying cards in the 550/560 range dont have great cases either, so nvidias helping out their own market share)

i believe because right about now, a 560 ti and a second hand 480 will be costing about the same

As for heat stay away from reference models and get one with an aftermarket cooler. The aftermarket 480's use less power also.

My gigabyte 480 soc is a beast, Cant wait to buy another

480 is a complete beast, Only downside is the heat and noise it generates.

It only requires like 7-8w more power then a GTX 580.

A simple fix for the heat on a ref card is removing the shroud cover of the video card and zip tying a 80 or 90mm fan to the heatsink of the card. You can run that fan at 100% with very little noise and in some cases drop temps up to 15-20c. I have done this on 3 different cards that run hot. It doesnt look great, but it works.

For example, this review of the original 1GHz Gigabyte SOC 560 Ti actually has it ahead of the 480 in everything but Metro.

Reaching 1 GHz on the 560 Ti is not so easy, some of them even fail to do 900. let alone the 1 GHz. It is a well-known fact the 560 Ti doesn't have that much headroom for an OC like how the old 460 was. Also at 1 GHz 560 performs like the 480 & 570 on "stock" settings. an overclocked 480 or 570 will annihilate the 560 Ti again.

TBH I haven't ever heard of a 560 Ti failing to hit 900. It's possible to just get a dud I guess, but having owned 4 myself all but one of them could do 900 on stock volts. I'd say 950 is a very attainable OC for most.

There's no doubt the 480 is the more powerful card, I even said as much in my first post. tongue.gif

But they aren't that far apart really. The 560 Ti is between the 470 and 480 comparing them all at their reference clocks after all.
