Nvidia officially launches GeForce GTX 560 Ti

The new NVIDIA GPU pwns the gamer’s sweet spot

Last summer, NVIDIA astounded gamers with the introduction of the GeForce® GTX 460 GPU, which editors called “an incredible value”(i). Flash forward 5 months later, and NVIDIA is set to do it again with the immediate availability of the new GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU. With average performance that is 33% faster(ii), overclocking headroom that is off the charts, and a performance per watt that puts competitive products to shame, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is further proof as to why GeForce GTX GPUs are favored by PC gamers worldwide.


The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is the newest addition of the Company’s “Fermi” line of consumer GPUs that were designed to deliver stunning DirectX 11 (DX11) performance for PC gaming platforms. The GeForce GTX 560 Ti brings a new level of DX11 price/performance to the performance PC gaming market while maintaining super quiet acoustics and minimal power requirements.

Like all NVIDIA “DX11 Done Right” GPUs, the GTX 560 Ti delivers the world’s fastest performance for DX11 games in its class. When compared to the closest competitive product, the GTX 560 Ti is up to 65 percent faster(iii) in today’s newest DX11 tessellated games, and 30 percent faster(iv) in previous-generation DX9 and DX10 games. With a superior design that includes a default graphics core clocked to 822MHz, 8 tessellation engines and 384 CUDA cores that were architected for next-generation DX11 games, the GTX 560 Ti is even up to 46% faster(v) than the competition’s product offerings that cost upwards of 20% more!

Drew Henry, general manager of GeForce GPU business at NVIDIA, said:

The GTX 560 Ti GPU has it all: awesome DX11 performance, terrific overclockability, and ultra quiet operation — attributes of the perfect performance GPU. With the GTX 560 Ti under the hood, and an awesome library of DX11 titles coming in the very short future, it is truly a great time to be a PC gamer!

With full support for NVIDIA 3D Vision™ and NVIDIA Surround™ technologies, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU also provides the graphics horsepower and video bandwidth needed to experience more than 500 games and high-definition Blu-ray movies in eye-popping stereoscopic 3D on a single display or spanning across three screens for an immersive gaming environment. And with NVIDIA SLI™ technology, the industry’s most scalable multi-GPU platform, gamers will be delighted by the sheer increase in gaming performance by adding a second GeForce GTX 560 Ti to their PC.
