PoV / TGT GTX 560 Ultra Charged tested - 10. Conclusion

Review: Breathing down GTX 560 Ti's neck  

Today we tested Point of View/TGT’s GTX 560 Ultra Charged graphics card. We’ve grown to expect the company to come up with some nice overclocks, and today was no exception. Nvidia’s partners pounced on the chance to put the GF114’s overclock potential to good use and although you’ll find some overclocked by only 12MHz, PoV/TGT’s GTX 560 Ultra Charged boasts a 90MHz overclock.

A reference clocked Geforce GTX 560 allows for smooth 1680x1050 gaming, whereas 1920x1080 will depend on the game and graphics settings. Thankfully, overclocked GTX 560 Ultra Charged card is up to 9% faster than the reference GTX 560 and that will allow for smooth 1920x1080 gaming.

Overclocking-friendly GTX 460, GT 560 and GTX 560 Ti cards made the €120-200 offer nicely filled out and there are plenty of cards to choose from. It seems like there are more than 100 different cards derived from the aforementioned cards.

As we said, Point of View/TGT GTX 560 Ultra Charged is one of the fastest GTX 560 cards around. Point of View/TGT 560 Ultra Charged currently goes for €184, which is a few euro higher than the GTX 560 Ti. While the card is undoubtedly quality, we must say that the pricing should have been at least a bit lower in order to compete with the GTX 560 Ti.

FUAD gave us a very pretty one-liner pertaining to the noise levels.

Looking at the cooler (looks like it's the GTX 460 stock cooler) and the fan measurements (1900 rpm in idle and 3000 rpm under load) I'm just gonna go ahead and say that the card seems to be rather loud.

Especially the fact that fuad calls 1900rpm "pretty quiet" kinda bugs me. On a fan that size, "quiet" is below 1200rpm at best... 1900rpm is a long way off.
