Cheapest GTX 560 Ti selling at €216

Written by Slobodan Simic

Non-reference at €229,90

A quick glance at our price search engine showed that the lowest price for the GTX 560 Ti is currently available at €216,33. Of course, this is a reference clocked card and comes from Palit/XpertVision, while it looks like that others can be found for as low as €229,90.

It is quite interesting to see that the non-reference cards like the Gigabyte GV-N560OC-1GI and MSI's N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II are both available at €229,90 at Alternate.de. Of course, both of these cards are factory overclocked and feature a non-reference cooling, which means that reference ones might be even cheaper.

On the other hand, it is quite strange to see that Newegg.com or Bestbuy.com haven't listed any GTX 560 Ti cards. Tigerdirect.com has a bunch of them with prices ranging from US $249.99 for reference cards to around US $259.99 for MSI's Twin Frozr II card and US $274.99 for Gigabyte's GTX 560 Ti SuperClocked 1GHz card.

Starting again the price war is.

Pricey :cry:

- 5-10% slower than the AMD 6950.
- needs 30 Watt more power under load compared to the AMD 6950.

So that's a fail.

The real question will be at what point the prices stabilize.

For me personally the HD6950 were a better option, since I used three displays, but the GTX560 does offer better acoustics and Nvidia seem to have less issues with the Windows 7 video codecs in general.

It's certainly not a clear-cut scenario but rather down to features needed/wanted as well as games played.

Regardless it's a segment that could do well with more competition!

dont forget that you can unlock the 6950 with bit luck, 6950 with custom cooler is the best option for ~250 bucks atm IMO

Not necessarily. Remember, the Nvidia 4xx and 5xx are known to be monster overclockers, without having to touch the voltage at all.

If you don't overclock, AMD GPUs may be the better deal. If you're an avid overclocker, Nvidia seems to have the edge in terms of price/performance.

The Nvidia current generation of cards are indeed exceptional overclockers, but the impression AMD's are vastly inferior should be revisit.
I've taken 3x 6970s as high as 985/1525 core & memory, respectively. Voltage adjustments are necessary for slight overclocks, & this leads to conclusions it can't. I'm talking 1.185 to 1.190, 1.195 etc. in .005 mV adjustments for every 25 or so MHz. Inefficiency in the VLIW-4 architecture is a relevant point as to why boosted clock speeds doing proportionately less as a performance boost. Anyway, I've come away rather impressed with the 560. Quite an engine for a mid-range item.. & it's provoking price adjustments for similarly impressive competition. Nice example of rampant fan-bias being nonsensical.

I'll revise my seething of hatred of Radeon products when they address the

Bloated Control panel
Add controls to manipulate the LOD quality.
don't [censored] with the quality of fp16 shaders
integrate a decent uninstaller that actually works (Nvidia's does contrary to what driversweeper fanatics would have you)
don't break opengl in every 4th release.
all n all.... radeon is still inferior software wise.
