Summary: The Zotac GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 card we've tested is functionally almost identical to the GeForce GTX 570. More than anything, it's a bit of a temporary Christmas price cut on the 570. We're favorably inclined toward such things, and for as long as this card is available, nobody should buy a GTX 570. The Ti 560 448 is the same basic thing for less money.
We're also generally pleased with Zotac's rendition of this holiday special.
Excerpt: Today NVIDIA and its partners are announcing availability of a new graphics card that bridges the gap between the $230 GTX 560 Ti and the $330 GTX 570 currently on the market. The new card promises to offer performance right between those two units with a price to match but with a catch: it is a limited edition part with expected availability only through the next couple of months.
Conclusion: Needless to be said, GeForce GTX 470 owners won't be rushing to buy a new GTX 560 Ti in hopes of gaining a little performance. However, let's not forget the GTX 470 debuted less than a year ago for $350, so users that are more than a generation behind will receive a nice overall boost when picking a new mainstream graphics card. The GTX 560 Ti's price and performance makes sense when compared to the next step up, the GeForce GTX 570.
Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time. While we each do our best to ensure that all aspects of the product are considered, there are often times unforeseen market conditions and manufacturer changes which occur after publication that could render our rating obsolete.
Pros: Plenty of overclocking headroom for enthusiasts!, Outperforms Radeon HD 5870 and 6950 video card, Great performance for ultra high-end games, Much lower power consumption vs GTX 470, Reduced heat output and cooling fan noise, Fan exhausts all heated air outside of case, Includes native HDMI audio/video output, Adds 32x CSAA post-processing detail, Supports dual-card SLI functionality, Adds GDDR5 Error Correcting Code (ECC)
Summary: The arrival of a new mainstream Nvidia core, GF114, posed a very interesting question: how well will this product perform in SLI mode? Since we‘ve got a pair of graphics cards like that on our hands, we decided to check it out.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs. GTX 460 1GB - at the same clocks
1 February 2011
Conclusion: Our review of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti highlights that it is, on average, 33 per cent faster than a GeForce GTX 460 1GB card. The large performance variation intimates that the two GPUs are a class or two apart - a fact that's true when looking at the relative performance of two reference-clocked cards. However, the GTX 460 1GB is a proven overclocker, with many cards running past the GTX 560 Ti's 822MHz engine and 4,008MHz memory speeds with consummate ease.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti Review Roundup - Galaxy, MSI and Palit Compared

Excerpt: This should look very familiar to you
if you have read our GTX 460 review linked above. While the GTX 460 had
only 336 CUDA cores with one of the SMs (simultaneous multiprocessors),
the new GTX 560 Ti uses all 8 of them for a total of 384 total CUDA cores.
The process continues to be tweaked and as a result the GTX 560 Ti
offers efficiency improvements as well as performance gains over the GTX
