GeForce GTX 560 Ti 

Released March, 2011
  • 950 MHz
  • 1 GB GDDR5
6.2 Out of 10

I like the big "900 MHz Overclocked" on the front, which quickly lets you identify the card as an overclocked SKU.

ASUS's implementation is solid, thanks to uncompromising power delivery circuitry, and good cooling.

Reviews Word on the street for the GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Considering the excellent cooling capabilities of the heatsink I see no reason why they didn't clock higher.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


In idle, the card becomes quite noisy - more than other cards in this performance segment and more than NVIDIA's reference design.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2011)
It's striking the price performance sweet-spot well, giving you performance to play anything at any resolution.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2011)
The card offers a substantial performance advantage of 6% over the reference design.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)


In a typical 3D application it consumes 184 W - the reference design needs only 128 W. The higher power draw leads to increased temperatures which the cooler can just handle.

Since load temperatures are already in the upper 70s I'm not sure if there is much headroom to quieten down the fan much more.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2011)
It seems to me that ZOTAC's heatsink can just handle the heat load from the card.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2011)


GPU overclocking is decent, even though we have seen higher clocks from other GTX 560 Ti 448 cards tested today.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2011)
What makes the card unique is its triple slot cooler design which promises low temperatures, low noise and good overclocking capabilities.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2011)
NVIDIA power limiter system could possibly complicate advanced overclocking.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)


ZOTAC's GTX 560 Ti uses pretty much the same power as NVIDIA's reference design, which shows that ZOTAC did not slack when redesigning the power solution of their card.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2011)
Power consumption is pretty much identical to the NVIDIA reference design.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)
Edition performs so well is the increased GPU voltage of 1.17 V which results in quite a power consumption increase.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2011)


As voltage controller a uPI uP6213 is used which provides extensive voltage control when used with MSI's Afterburner overclocking software.

The 560 Ti is good for a medium-range performance desktop that stays quiet thanks to the large heatsink and big fan. If you're going for the 560 Ti these days (it's older and cheap now) I recommend the versions that have the 256-bit memory interface and have more than the standard 1 GB of GDDR5. Get the cards that feature the auxiliary power cord and a big heatsink with one or two large low-RPM fans. At the time it was relatively new, I bought the GeForce GTX 560 Ti specifically so my kids could run the new generation of games on Steam that require the new shader language in DirectX. If you have older desktops that you want upgrade in order play new "indie" games that use the new Unity and Unreal engines, this is the card to get. It's completely compatible with Windows 10, too.
Can i use the eVGA Geforce 560Ti Superclocked 1gb with the eVGA Geforce 560Ti Exclusive Overclocked 2GB in SLI?
Great card the only issue i have had is that the fan speed will only go up to 75% that is its max speed.
