Excerpt: The GTX 560 Ti comes very close to the performance of AMD’s more expensive Radeon HD 6950 card, at a slightly lower price. It’s not a clear performance winner in its price range, but it’s still an excellent value for the money.
Pros: Great gaming performance for the price, Quiet operation, Supports 3D Vision, physics/computation acceleration
Cons: Blocks an adjacent slot, Requires two six-pin power connectors
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB graphics card review
25 January 2011
Conclusion: It has taken a while for NVIDIA to really get hold of the powerful Fermi GPU architecture that underpins the majority of GeForce GPUs released in the last year. While we believe that the GeForce 400-series was an ultimately flawed attempt at creating a complex, forward-looking graphics range, NVIDIA corrected most of the shortcomings with the high-end GeForce 580 and GTX 570 cards, made available late in 2010.
Excerpt: Mid-range graphics cards are the most popular, since they perform well without costing the earth. Both AMD and nVidia sell more than one mid-range card, either costing closer to £100 or £200, and the GTX 560 TI is at the pricier end of nVidia mid-range offerings, with vendors selling variants of the card for around £170. While that’s still no minor outlay, it’s a lot less than the companies’ flagship graphics cards.
