Shortly before Christmas 2011 unexpectedly an old nVidia graphics card has re-opened and placed on an improved version on the market. We are talking about the GTX 560 Ti, which has now given us the additional 448 cores thus should chalk up a small performance boost. That leaves the question of how large this thrust has failed. This resuscitation years ago we could see the GTX 260, which could also appreciate more cores.
This series was presented as a limited edition and is only a short time and with just under 10,000 copies will be available, current status in January 2012 but still looks good, more expensive card is still available in large quantities. As a manufacturer, we have chosen this time PNY, who call their latest work Zotac GeForce GTX 448 core 560 Ti limited edition, terms of performance, the new card will settle close to the GTX 570 th.
To the customer this card somehow to make tasty, I needed a small performance boost. As was touched on briefly is the one core (shader units) of the GTX 560 Ti increased from 384 to 448th But the number of transistors has been increased by one billion to three billion. The amount of memory has been increased to 1280 MB, which have a 320 bit memory interface. Thus one arrives at a memory bandwidth of just 152 GB / s.
Since early 2011, we use a new test system for our graphics tests, these precursors, in 2012 we so forth, an upgrade to a faster model is not for the current year have been necessary, since the new Core i7 processors have brought a huge boost to socket 1155 processor on the market, we chose a 2600K is the protagonist. That we have equal to 4.5 GHz overclock, so this is not before the video card will get tired and slow performance unnecessarily, even for the benchmarks we have made a change, old games like Crysis or Far Cry were removed and replaced with new ones with DX 11 support.
