Test Setup and Overclocking

Sparkle X560 Ti DF Calibre Review

Test Setup

Aside from using the latest WHQL ForceWare drivers, this is our standard GPU test setup.

Sparkle GTX560Ti DF Calibre
ForceWare 285.62
Intel Core-i7 950 @ 4GHz
Gigabyte G1 Assassin
Corsair AX1200W
6GB Mushkin Redline
Noctua NH-D14
Windows 7 Ultimate x64


Amazingly despite the already hefty overclock the Sparkle Calibre still has something to give, breaking through the magic 1GHz barrier on the core and therefore taking the dual-linked shaders past 2GHz. Hugely impressive stuff. 

Despite this extremely high overclock the cooler managers to perform admirably, with the highest temperature we recorded being a mere 75°C. Outstanding performance.

ive said it before and ill say it again...the GF 104/114 is the best gpu to date period!!! the 460 was brilliant and the die shrink made it even more so!!!

this is a GORGEOUS card......if they make a 580 like this instead of the arctic cooling triple fan in.....ill sell my 6970's is a second!!!!!!!
