yea I think I'm going to put one in my laptop.

But seriously they should think about using this in a next-gen console, could you imagine what it could do? I mean think about what a gimped 7900GT can do for the ps3. A 560 with a solid cpu and 4GB of RAM, I mean I could only imagine how much better it would be.

So what? What difference does that make?
January 13, 2011 11:32:07 PM

Nvidia's April's Fools? Or happy New Year?

The important question is.. Will there be a 570 Ti as well? Cause I'm about to go buy it. ffs -.- I WANNA KNOW NOW!
January 13, 2011 11:54:58 PM

I actually did some research and seems like its true. There are even leaked pics of benchmarks etc. All showing same specs and the Ti suffix. So its true I bet. Not high bet but I do bet on it :p

But the important thing here is: what does the "Ti" moniker actually mean in this day and age ?

What special feature does it have compared to a non "Ti" card ? Or is "Ti" just another form of differentiating between cards, meaning this is a better card ? Sort of "GTX +" ?

So is there an MX version with no stream processors? :lol:

My old Nissan Skyline was a Ti. At the time it meant 15inch mag wheels, velour trim, cruise control, colour coded bumper bars, and a trip computer.

In saying that Ti could only mean it's a better card. maybe it will Chrome exhaust fans, gold plated dvi's, and stickers to give it extra kilowatts wait I mean megahertz.

Rapper. TI gone graphic card? Is this like when ludacris tried to save the pontiac solstice? Probably not...but I can't wait till the 25th in all seriousness. 2 of those cards are going to be a nice addition. I would have gone 460 but the vapor coolers made me hold off til these are out :) .

It should be Ps (Programmable Shaders) not Ti - it is surely a typo error. cheers.

Nvidia marketing guys run out of tricks so they use old material. Seems that they'll lose AMD counterparts and have to compensate with big names like "Titanium", "Ultra", and "Mega". And sadly that works.

This is news? ..
January 14, 2011 12:00:14 PM

As if graphics cards names aren't confusing enough.
January 14, 2011 1:02:35 PM

Well at least now we know what shiny new graphics card Chris just received that he said will be consuming his weekend!!
January 14, 2011 1:13:23 PM

I had a Geforce 4 TI (I think it was a 4600)...
I bought it because it was cheap and produced good graphics and frames (at the time) for the money. I sold it on eBay for next to nothing.

Ah... the nVidia marketing team, doing their NORMAL Work to come up with more crap to show they are "working"... blah blah. Skipping series (What happened to the 380GTX... oh yeah, its called the 400 series. And the 580... a fixed 480... grrrr, they could have gone with the "Geforce 490" and it would made more sense.

Meaningless naming just gets worse every year!

GTX / GT = means nothing. As ALL model cards have numbers.
TI / Pro / Ultra = means nothing. As ALL model cards have numbers.

"Geforce 580" is all that is needed. GTX is useless unless there is a "580GT and 580GTX".

Now the letters mean something if they had no numbers.

Gefore 5-GTX
Gefore 5-GT
Gefore 5-Pro
Gefore 5-MX

But we know that is already limiting as some customers may not know what is better, an MX or Pro?

AMD will hopefully stay smarter (They ROYALLY screw up with the 6800/6900 cards because of COMPLETE MORONS in their marketing/manangement... what they do, hire someone from Nvidia?)

"GeForce GTX 560 Ti" is stupid. There are NO "GeForce GTX 560" so it might as well not have the "TI". With the GF3~GF4 cards, the TI cards had a feature and design process.

The whole thing is stupid... and why I don't buy GeForce cards anymore.

It's going to be an excellent years of games and computer hardware.
January 14, 2011 3:39:56 PM

Who cares?

To the end user, it is a card naming convention. That the card has some architectural feature that is reflected in the naming convention is meaningless.
January 14, 2011 4:44:06 PM

I dont understand how a 994A is gonna make graphics better. :p 
January 14, 2011 6:57:57 PM

heh you guys know what GT stands for? Grand Touring. I don't see any of these video cards being driven around the country side :)  Ti makes more sense if you think about it. Didn't Ti stand for Titanium? There's no titanium in it. I guess maybe it doesn't make more sense oh well.... :p 
January 15, 2011 2:18:54 AM

GTX 560 so soon eh? Seems like Nvidia is on a roll, pumping out cards left right and centre.
January 15, 2011 3:27:36 AM

I just hope it means that the 460s and 470s will be dropping in price, because I'd be perfectly happy with one of those right now!
January 15, 2011 5:20:15 AM

If this is true and its somehow a monicure to the past then... It seems even nVidia has accepted that their current crop of GPUs just are not as good as AMDs.
January 15, 2011 8:46:33 AM

I'm looking forward to upgrade to a new mainstream Nvidia or AMD card, the fan on my HD4650 has just about failed and I've been holding off upgrading till these new cards get released.
January 15, 2011 9:23:33 AM

It's very clear from the specs that this GPU is a desktop part

hmmm... that's a good reason. I think you may just be better off not buying discrete graphics cards. That way you won't have to deal with all the stress and confusion involved in those deceptive naming schemes. It's good however that you forgave AMD for the HD6000 series by somehow convincing yourself that it was a fluke influenced by the "COMPLETE MORONS" at Nvidia.

Didn't know anyone had such a difficult time with this, but I believe the GTX, GTS, and GT markers are meant to provide a simple broad understanding of graphics performance relative to a generation. GTX representing high-end to upper mid-range cards, GTS for mid range cards, and GT for lower end cards. And I'm not sure what you're talking about with the "pro" and "mx" suffixes, but Nvidia hasn't used either of those for a very long time. In fact ATI was the last to use "pro" in their naming schemes, but I'm guessing that just didn't seem as hostile to you as when Nvidia used it, right?

It's funny though how some of the more flamboyant ATI fanboy's go 'searching' for things to complain about, no matter how trivial. Putting "TI" in the name? That's gotta be a plot to insult my intelligence, one of those Nvidia quick money grabbing schemes... lol. You were probably one of the people relentlessly complaining about Nvidia's g92 rebranding, as though ATI never has or never will do the same.

Just another example of putting ATI up on a pedestal.
