Let's get some reviews up tom's. That MSI Twin Frozr looks pretty to me, especially if takes the 460's price down $100.

More about : gtx 560

Bah, £220-£230 too much for my tastes. The 470 is £175, the 6950 which can unlock to the 6970 is same price as the GTX 560.
It may not even have an effect on the GT 460 price

Oh it better, or I'm going to ATI and never looking back.

Actually I'm going to FRY's and looking around in about 3 weeks.

Pretty disappointing if you ask me......here's Tom's Hardwares conclusion:


Quote:
Either way, my conclusion on the GTX 560 Ti doesn't change. It still doesn't present me with the overwhelming urge to upgrade. AMD's cards simply look better in comparison, based on their performance.

I disagree with that verdict in terms of AMD - looks to me as though the GTX 560 would be a preferable buy to the 6950...on the other hand, the 6950 does unlock to 6970 which I suppose means maybe AMD is the winner. Bit-Techs review is also worth reading. However I agree on the GTX 560 not overwhelming me. It is a nice card, but ultimately the decision is still favouring a GTX 460 for me personally.
The GTX 460 consistently OC's to increase its performance to the GTX 560 lvl (approx. 25% performance ncrease). At £199 the GTX 560 is costing £75 more for basically whatever its OC performance offers. So the question I ask myself is: is £75 for a 16% OC over what I have worth it? For some the answer may be yes, but for me its an 'I don't think so'

--------------

Having fully read the Tom's Hardware review I see why the AMD cards are looking to be preferable. Particularly the 5870 which is a good price these days

Right now the 6970 has the best fps per dollar (or pound). If you can get a 6950 and turn it to a 6970 then that's a really sweet fps per dollar.

I don't think so.

I'll get a 460 if it's 139 in 5 weeks, or a 560 if it's 229 in 4 weeks.
