So they're going to call it what? A GTX 560 GTi? A GTX 565? Surely they won't leave the name the same (like the GTX 260's upgrade).

Interesting.
It was between the 560ti and the HD6950 for me.
Now I may have to wait.
Although unlocking the 6950 into a 6970 is still oh so appealing!

Wikipedia already has something similar down as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti OEM. It has the same basic die as the 570 albeit with 11 SMs (352 shaders/44 TMUs) and 40 ROPs as well as the same clocks and memory interface as the 570, and a TDP of 210W. So, this particular product has less texturing power than the 560 Ti (in fact, so does the 570 and 580) but a much larger memory interface.

And what happens if some poor sap who got a first-gen 560Ti wants to get a second for SLI purposes? Two distinct models aren't going to work together in an SLI configuration, are they?

Why not just lower the price of the 570. The new ti will approach the price of the 570 so whould buy a 570 after the new ti comes out?

I think the question will be.. who will buy a 560ti OEM since its so damn close in price to the more powerful (if only by a small amount) gtx 570?

So they can completely stop the G114 fab process and build only GF 110 and more products on one fabrication process. Which makes it cheaper to produce.

I think that this could be a move to counter the upcoming Radeon 7xxx series (at least the mainstream ones), since it is being rumored that nVidia's own 28nm GPUs will be delayed.

rumor has it tsmc(amd and nvidia's gpu manufacturer) is having trouble with nvidia's 28 nm 6xx series gpu's production. meanwhile tsmc reported that radeon hd 7xxx cards have gone into volume production.
nvidia's declaration of a new gtx 560 might be to compete with the new radeon cards. a new card is good news....still, price reductions across the lineup would have been much better imo.

I honestly cannot see any reason that they should come out this chip, because the performance between a 560Ti vs 570 is pretty close enough. IN fact quite a number of pre-overclocked 560Ti could come almost as fast as 570.

The only explanation would be, after so many months of manufacturing large low yield GF110, they got enough broken GF110 chips that couldnt meet 570 Spec. So instead of wasting it completely they gonna milk it and sell it to consumer, Same case for GTX460 SE.

Looks like anyone who bought this chip is gonna get scam like GTX465. High power consumption, medicore performance :)  Might as well buy a highly overclocked 560Ti.

It may be a good card but price and TDP is too close to the 570. I'll prefer more powerful 570 or amd 6970 over this 560ti.

And then when its released, the next card expected to fall in that price range will be announced and you will decide to wait for that one. Then one day you wake up, your 10 years older and you finally realize that you will never win!

Quote:
The publication reports that the new 560 Ti will essentially be a 570 with 14 (and one disabled) streaming multiprocessor with a total of 448 cores, up from the current 384. It is more than likely that the clock speed will be below that of the 570. Expect to see the 320-bit memory interface with 56 TMUs and 40 ROPs.


Isn't that just a GTX470 at lower power?

The good thing about the current 560 ti's is that you can overclock them like crazy, tbh, my 560 ti is outperforming a 570 on air right now.

" It will also mean a drop of the current GF114."

This could either mean:
1. they're stopping production of the GF114,
2. they're dropping the price of the GF114

This is VERY annoying... I already have troubles finding a proper 560 Ti to SLI with mine, and these new 560 Ti's might replace the old ones entirely. As for the names confusion, well... what do you expect? nVidia waited till EVERYONE was comfortable with calling a GTX 560 Ti simply a "GTX 560", then released a card named exactly that - GTX 560 - and produced tons of confusion (70% of the "New Build" threads have that mix-up). Now it's gonna be even worse.

I suggest calling it GTX 565 Ti to avoid mixups.

de5_roya new gtx 560 ti upgrade vs amd's 28 nm radeon hd 7xxx cards... i choose radeon even if they're unreleased.


That's what Nvidia's doing. It alows AMD to release the cards first and then releases its own cards which are tweaked to compete with the Radeons.That's what happened incase of the 6990 and although Nvidia claimed that the GTX 590's power consumption is lower than the 6990, this didn't prove to be true.That was also the case with AMD's 5870. As Nvidia claimed that their 480 handled tessellation better than the 5870, ignoring the fact that it was released six months before the 480. The only reason that might compel me to buy Nvidia is the PhysX acceleration (I'm thinking of the GT440 as a dedicated PhysX card). Other than that, their cards consume more power and cost more money than their Radeon counter parts. I generally have more respect and trust in AMD's GPUs than I'll ever have for Nvidia.
