Geforce GTX 560 comes in late January

CES 2011: Tuesday the 25th
It looks like Nvidia's Geforce GTX 560 might show up before the end of the month. Tuesday the 25th is probably the last Tuesday that Nvidia can use, in the eve of the Chinese New Year.

During Chinese new year, it's next to impossible to get any serious hardware shipment out of Asia.

Geforce GTX 560 is a fully enabled GF104 core with all eight clusters turned on and we used to call this card GTX 475 before. Nvidia thinks that calling it Geforce GTX 560 is a better idea and that it will be a worthy replacement for the GTX 460.

The card is faster than the GTX 470 and promises great performance in the $199 market. Nvidia lacked competitive products in this price range, so the new card should put more pressure on AMD's Radeon HD 6870 in this market.
