Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Core Review: GF110 On A Diet
By

We're comparing the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Core to the similarly-priced competition, including AMD's Radeon HD 6950 1 GB, 6950 2 GB, and 6970, as well as Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560 Ti and GTX 570.

Again, Nvidia didn't sample a reference board design for testing, so we dropped the clocks on Zotac's model to match the specs Nvidia provided to us.
