Gigabyte GTX560Ti 448 Core Review

Test Setup, Overclocking and Temps

Gigabyte GTX560Ti With 448 Cores Review

Test Setup

As there have been a plethora of driver upgrades since we originally tested the reference GTX560Ti and GTX570 cards, we've gone away and retested them both on the latest drivers to ensure that our results are as up to the minute as possible. We've even tested both reference models at stock, and with an overclock, to give the most accurate comparisons available.

Noctua NH-D14
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Overclocking

Although the Gigabyte comes out the box at a modest 732MHz, there is plenty of overhead available and we coaxed 800MHz out of the card which is the speed we'll be using for our overclock testing.

Temperatures

The Gigabyte 448 is fair bit cooler than the reference GTX560Ti, and noise levels are easily tolerable too.

That rather lengthy name means an upgraded limited edition GTX560Ti. How does it perform?

Nvidia seem to make a habit of releasing revisions of existing cards that perform slightly less than the next model up but price them only a few quid less. If you have 244 why wouldn't you spend 6 extra for a better card?

This release seems pointless to me and it's like Nvidia is just saturating the market to sell more cards.

My biggest gripe with Gigabyte's cards are that they're still putting blue PCBs with black coolers. It seems strange that they haven't adopted the same stylistic choice as they did with their motherboards and went with black PCBs for the higher end stuff. A shame because I think it'd complement the cooler incredibly well.

Regardless: as others have said, it's a nice card, but I'm not sure where it's supposed to fit on the market with the price tag that it's carrying.

Interested to see if they play ball with an old 384 core GF114 based card in SLI. Would be slightly tempted to grab one in that case. If not, then I'd just wait and save for the "670"
