Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 

Released January, 2011
  • 823 MHz
  • 1 GB GDDR5
5 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 our overclocking tests we saw an easy 12% additional clock headroom, which is why a higher clock speed would have been nice for the card.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2011)
Memory overclocking works very well on the other hand, delivering the highest clock frequency of all reviewed cards.
by techPowerUp! (Nov, 2011)
It offers substantially increased clock speeds of 950 MHz vs. 823 MHz on the reference design.

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)

Memory Clock Speed

Compared to the GTX 560 reference design, ASUS' GeForce GTX 560 Ti Direct CU II consumes more power in 3D which is to be expected from the higher 3D clock speeds.
by techPowerUp! (Jan, 2011)
The higher power requirement in 3D is explained by the higher clock speeds out of the box, which is to be expected.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)
Edition uses massively increased clock speeds to give the user a nice performance gain for a small price increase while also bundling a full version of Assassin's Creed.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2011)


With a price of $250, the card costs about as much as other reference design implementations.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)
No price increase compared to reference design.
by techPowerUp! (Mar, 2011)
Its price of $279 is reasonable considering the performance it offers, the included full version of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood helps offset the cost.

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.
