how much will this card be? and will it lower other cards prices?

branchedout2550d ago

$250

And AMD is coincidentally lowering their prices on their cards right about now.

I'm still extremely pleased with my GTX 460, I have to say.

My GTX 260 works on all the most demanding games flawlessly.

The real killer2550d ago

AMD has no answer to Geforce 560 :) that's why they lower the price ;)

Soon i will buy this baby :)

Actually it does. Read the review at Hardocp.com

"In regard to the Radeon HD 6870, it works the opposite way. Current pricing on the Radeon HD 6870 has them all the way down to $219 now! A stock GeForce GTX 560 Ti might cost you $249, but already the Radeon HD 6870 is $30 less. Our performance testing has revealed that the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is no faster than the Radeon HD 6870 in gaming. The GTX 560 Ti matches the gameplay experience of the Radeon HD 6870, but costs more. Logically, it makes sense to save $30 and get the same performance for less by going with the Radeon HD 6870. Unless of course you are using a specific game that does better on the GTX 560 Ti, like Civ 5 for example."

"The GTX 560 Ti is a great improvement over the GTX 460, but the fact is that the 560 Ti is not competing with the 460, it is going head to head with AMD's Radeon HD 6870 and Radeon HD 6950. AMD's smaller die sizes are likely to leave it in a position to dominate this mainstream GPU landscape as it is already the company pushing the pricing levels around."

"The simple fact is that yesterday's price drops on the AMD Radeon HD 6870 and the Radeon HD 6950 has given the GTX 560 Ti a run for its money, literally. If not for these price drops, we might have said the GTX 560 Ti was a better value. As it is right now, with all these price drops and rebates you can find on the Radeon HD 6870 and Radeon HD 6950 we have to give AMD the better value in this segment."

Nvidia has to drop the price of this card to compete with the 6870HD and 6950.

Except that in 2 months, nVidia will update their drivers and this card will gain 10% in performance. Whereas, AMD will update and you'll gain nothing. I've never been happy with AMD's driver support.

Not to mention the support for CUDA and PhysX enabled software is worth the little extra bit of money for the chances you get to use it. Especially if you work in the 3D industry.

I would still get a GTX 460 depending on the price.

These 560 are around 7 degrees hotter, 2 Db louder and use about 30-40W more power and that is reference 460 verses aftermarket 560 coolers

I can get my GTX 460s at 800MHz/1600MHz/4000MHz no sweet at stock voltages even tried 900MHz/1800MHz/4000MHz

Also the GTX 560 has been classed as a revision as in GF114, its just a GF104 with only SM unlocked allowing 384 Cuda cores instead of 336.

According to this review, the power is only 5-15 watts higher and it actually runs cooler than a 460.

Overlocking performance puts it above the stock 570.

TABSF2549d ago

Wow

I'm surprised, I've seen a 560 Ti aftermarket cooler and it performed way worse than that.

GrumpyVeteran2550d ago

Running an AMD 6950.

Card works great, I don't think this 560 will do anything to AMD at all.

Plus my 6950 can be turned into a 6970 with a simple BIOS flash so that's great.

Free hardware upgrade FTW!
