EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Titanium Video Card Review (BmR)

Benchmark Reviews: It's been nearly a decade since NVIDIA last used the Titanium moniker on one of their product, and for those who can still recall how the GeForce 4 series was revision of the previous series the new GeForce GTX 560 Ti will make perfect sense. Replacing the GeForce GTX 470 video card in the current product stack, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 560 Ti uses a tuned GF114 GPU that finally delivers a full GF104 Fermi architecture. The original GF104 GPU offered seven of eight possible Streaming Multiprocessors (SM) with the GeForce GTX 460 video card, and now NVIDIA returns to enable that last SM to make even more cores available to GF114, now 384 compared to 336. Keeping with tradition, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti uses an identical SM configuration as the GeForce GTX 460. Each SM still offers 48 CUDA cores, four dispatch units, and eight texture/special function units. Besides including the eighth and final SM on the GPU, what's different is the myriad of transistor-level changes to improve power efficiency and in turn allowed for significantly faster clock speeds. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (model 01G-P3-1560-AR) against an entire market of graphics card options.
