In the April 2012 issue we reviewed ECS Black GTX 560 graphics card. In it, we had mentioned about this Palit card, both of which have been produced by Nvidia for OEMs. Palit GTX 560 Ti differs from ECS Black GTX 560 in the number of CUDA cores. The CUDA cores in Palit are 384, while in ECS there are 336 which translates into better performance by Palit. This actually reflected in our tests. Besides this internal difference, the other visible difference between these two graphics cards other than design is the presence of a VGA port on Palit. The Palit GTX 560 Ti is also equipped with a new thermal solution called ‘Twin Light Turbo’ which features two cooling fans and four heat pipes for better heat dissipation.


Price: Rs 23500

We ran tests using Windows 7 Ultimate OS, Intel motherboard, 1 GB RAM, Intel Core i7, and 120 GB 7200 RPM HDD. In 3D Mark 06 benchmark for graphics performance, GTX 560 Ti scored 26,577 points which is very high as compared to 16,682 of ECS GTX 560 and comparable to GTX 590 (which scored 27,500). The other graphics performance benchmark we used was CineBench Release 11.5. Here too, GTX 560 Ti came up with a high score of 60.76 fps, much higher than ECS GTX 560’s score of 48.55 fps.

Bottomline: A high performer with lot of connectivity ports and support for all NVIDIA features.
