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

Power, Temperature, And Noise

Because there aren't any reference models available, we have to rely on Zotac's specific implementation of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Core for power, thermal, and acoustic testing. Keep in mind that only the Radeon HD 6970 and 6950 2 GB are reference models, so power and temperature measurements from the other cards are affected by factory over-voltage and non-reference coolers.

The GeForce cards draw a little more power under load than AMD's Radeon-based boards. With that said, Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Core falls roughly where we'd expect, nearing the GeForce GTX 570 from which it's derived.

All of these cards sport excellent coolers, and even AMD's reference Radeon HD 6970/6950 2 GB does well.

    Id like to see application productivity in these test.
    Cuda cores are now very important part of adobe and autodesk rendering.
    The increased memory and cores should make a larger difference in these areas.

    Hey Don! Nice article but don't you usually use Metro 2033 on DX 11 not DX 10.... Consistency would be nice and DX 11 "usually" gets better performance out of all the cards as it is supposed to be a more efficient code path...
