Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Review: GF114 Rises, GF100 Rides Off

Benchmark Results: Just Cause 2

Although Just Cause 2 is a TWIMTBP title, AMD’s Radeon HD 5870 shows us that it doesn’t necessarily favor Nvidia’s hardware—it just doesn’t seem to like the new 6000-series boards.

Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 560 Ti falls in under the GTX 570, but it’s only at 2560x1600 that the 2 GB Radeon HD 6950 catches up. That might be suspect in an Nvidia-sponsored title if, again, the 5870 wasn’t putting down better numbers for substantially less money.

    Hehe, it's still a potent card so i don't think there's much need!

    I am still running a GTX 260. Would it be better to get another GTX 260 (I have a SLI mobo) or buy one GTX 560 Ti?

    Did I miss the temperature graphs? How hot do they get?

    Adding a second card draws much more power so it could end up more expensive if you need to get a decent power supply, it depends what you already have in your system. The 560 will probably cost about £100 more than a second 260, though do shop around. In terms of performance, extra cards don't always scale very well and they can have compatibility issues with some (usually older) games so considering this, DirectX 11 support and the power draw I would personally spend the extra on the single 560 Ti, but it is your cash - if you definitely have a good enough power supply already then dual 260s is a pretty respectable configuration and should see you steady for a good amount of time with minimal expenditure.
