NVIDIA Introduces The New GeForce GTX 560 Ti

NVIDIA this week announced their newest 'mainstream' GPU the new $250 (MSRP) GeForce GTX 560 Ti.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is the newest addition of the Company's "Fermi" line of consumer level GPUs that were designed to deliver stunning DirectX 11 (DX11) performance for PC gaming platforms. According to NVIDIA, the GTX 560 Ti is up to 65% faster in the newest DX11 tessellation games and 30% faster in previous generation DX 9 and DX 10 games. The card features 1GB of DDR5 memory with an 822MHz graphics clock and a 1645MHz processor clock. There are eight tessellation engines, 384 CUDA cores giving the card a totally memory bandwidth of 128.3 GB/s a texture fill rate of 52.6 GigaTexels/sec.

Because this product is named similarly to the GTX 460 from the previous generation, consumers might think that this is a replacement to that line when in fact the GTX 560 Ti is more meant to be the perfect replacement for the now end-of-life GTX 470. The price to performance of the new card places it in the category not necessarily of the 'mainstream' but more of the upper midrange market segment. The new, and yet to be upcoming, GeForce GTS 550 will be more for the mainstream masses.
