You can find details about this product on NVIDIA’s website with the name GeForce GTX560. Interestingly GTX 560 comes in multiple variants. GTX 560 Ti is one such variant which looks best in features if compared with other members of the series. It comes loaded with 386 CUDA cores. The GTX 560, reviewed here, comes with 336 CUDA cores, 1 GB of memory, PCI Express 2.0, 2 DVI, and 1 mini HDMI ports. The box also contains mini-HDMI to HDMI converter and DVI to VGA converter which is a good addition given VGA and HDMI ports are more popular.

We tested the card on a test rig comprising Windows 7 Ultimate OS, Gigabyte motherboard, 4 GB RAM, AMD FX 8150 mobo, and 120 GB 7200 RPM HDD. In 3D Mark 06 benchmark for graphics performance, the GTX 560 scored 16,682 3DMarks, which is more than AMD Radeon 6850’s (reviewed earlier) 15,773 3DMarks. Both tests were run at 1920×1080 resolution. We also ran OpenGL benchmark of Cinebench 11.5 to test for graphics capability. The score of 48.55 is again on the higher side. Importantly, all this good performance comes with minimal noise, reminding us of GTX 590 card we reviewed for NDTV GadgetGuru Awards 2012.

Bottomline: A brilliant performer that supports all NVIDIA features, and comes at a decent price.
