448 cores make a difference
GTX 560 has been with us since January and even the Geforce GTX 560 Ti was launched in late January. Since that time, we barely saw any action in Nvidia's performance segment, but this is about to change.
Enter the Zotac Geforce GTX 560 TI with 448 cores. Plain GTX 560 TI cards have 384 cores, while this new card comes with 448 cores, only 32 cores short from Geforce GTX 570 that packs 480 shaders. This is not all. The memory on this new GTX 560TI uses a 320-bit wide bus, while the reference GTX 560 TI has to make do with 256-bit. The Zotac card also packs 1280MB of memory, which should be more than enough for most users.
Since the card is limited edition it looks more like a slightly underlocked GTX 570 than a GTX 560TI on steroids and we believe that the chip behind this black and orange cooler is GF110 rather than GF114, but this is something that we need to double check.
We don’t know the price or launch date, but we expect to see it very soon. Enjoy the picture and we have no plans to remove it upon request.
