Inno3D GTX560Ti 448 Core Review
Published: 12th January 2012 | Source: Inno3D | Price: |
When we first did our batch of GTX560Ti 448 reviews it became very difficult to find a new way of expressing the fact that they are pretty inseparable so you couldn't go wrong with whichever one you chose.
The Inno3D doesn't change this fact really. It performs exactly as we'd expect the 448 Core version of the GTX560Ti.
It does have a couple of factors in its favour though.
Firstly because it's from a company that you might not think of as readily as the giants of ASUS, Gigabyte or MSI, it comes in at about a tenner cheaper. That doesn't mean the build quality is any less, nor do you get fewer accessories or a lower overclock. In fact apart from the name on the card, and enough for a couple of pints in your pocket, you would be none the wiser.
Secondly the decision to only have a single fan on the card has benefits to your ears. Yes it's not comprehensively quieter but it is at least noticeably so. Noise is always subjective anyway. Loud AC/DC is better than quiet Justin Bieber, so measuring the pure db production doesn't tell you everything.
Finally whereas most of the cards, MSI apart, had good and bad results, the Inno3D was very consistent, giving a good result in all of our tests.
Because of this consistency and being a bit easier on your pocket we are happy to award the Inno3D our Gamers Choice award.
