You didn't think you were only going to get one version of the new GTX 560 Ti out of us did you? Always willing to push a little further here's Zotac's take on the new card, the Zotac GTX 560 Ti Limited Edition 448 Cores.Now, in the Asus GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores Direct CU II review we've already spoken about how it's not really a standard Nvidia GTX 560 Ti at all, bar the nomenclature. So we wont spend any more words discussing Nvidia's new marketing strategy for its old chips.But there is another interesting facet to this new GTX 560 Ti's make up. And that's how the individual manufacturers create their cards. Nvidia has made no reference designs for this chip and that means there are no hard and fast rules for the clockspeed settings.And that, in turn, means the card manufacturers can release what are effectively overclocked cards straight off the bat. You can immediately tell the slight performance boost the out-of-the-box factory overclock gives you. It's easy to assume from that the Zotac is the faster card but, while that is true at stock settings, the Asus card will easily outstrip the Zotac when you start waving the overclocking stick around.
Just in time for the holiday buying season, NVIDIA is at the ready with a brand new graphics card. Sort of. Today, NVIDIA is announcing the GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores. Some of you may be thinking, \"Hey! GeForce GTX 560 Ti cards use the GF114 GPU which offers a maximum of 384 cores!” And you'd be right. This new GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores, however, isn't built around the GF114 GPU. Rather, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores is outfitted with the same GF110 GPU powering the high-end GeForce GTX 570 and GTX 580, but with a couple of its SMs fused off. There are some other factors that differentiate the GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores from other GF110-based cards as well, but NVIDIA had a bin of the GPUs with 448 cores available and decided to put together a graphics card that would fill the gap between existing GeForce GTX 560 Ti and GeForce GTX 570. Instead of naming the card something like the GeForce GTX 565, however, NVIDIA chose the GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores moniker because the card will be a limited edition. Once the bin of 448-core GF110 GPUs is gone, so will the GeForce GTX 560 Ti with 448 cores.
