Gtx 560 ti: MSI Twin Frozr II or EVGA SuperClocked?
Okay so I'm planning to get a gtx 560 ti series for battlefield 3, but I'm unsure of whether I should get the superclocked EVGA brand http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130610, or just go with a 2G MSI Twin Frozr II http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127608.
Just finished having really, really bad tech support from EVGA and purchased two of the 2gb 560ti's I think you are referring to. I was trying to decide between the EVGA 2gb and a 6950. I had tech support at EVGA tell me four times the 6950's would work in crossfire on my 790i ultra. Bought two of the cards and they both unlocked the shaders and ran fine, but I couldn't get crossfire to work.
At this point, EVGA said crossfire doesn't work on my board...yeah after telling me four times that it did and after me purchasing the two cards. After a week of tech support and constant e-mails from me, they finally had a manager call me and tell me I can't run crossfire on my board. They just left me hanging with $600 in gpu's with no solution. Without newegg.com, I'd be stuck with the two amd gpu's, only one of which I'd be able to use since crossfire wouldn't work. As it is, I'm out the time, effort and the cost to RMA both heavy cards and to ship out new cards.
I'd get neither...patience is a virtue.

On November 29,2011, NVIDIA will launch its newest graphics card SKU, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores. We got our first sniff of it last month. Today we present to you all the specifications that matter: clock speeds, voltages, device IDs, etc., but first a brief history. NVIDIA launched the original GeForce GTX 560 Ti back in January, based on its spanking new GF114 silicon. It packed 384 CUDA cores, a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, 1 GB of memory, high clock speeds, and fairly decent overclocking potential. AMD's Radeon HD 6870 was "pwned" (NVIDIA's words). But then, AMD managed to work closely with its partners to create a 1 GB version of its Radeon HD 6950 graphics card. Coupled with diligent component cost balancing, AMD was able to neuter GTX 560 Ti to a good extant. With the upcoming winter shopping season, NVIDIA does not want to take any chances with its competitiveness in the $250-ish "sweetspot" segment, and hence it had to redesign the GTX 560 Ti.
The new GeForce GTX 560 Ti will come with "448 Cores" brand extension, and as it suggests, the GPU now has 448 CUDA cores as opposed to 384 cores on the original. The new SKU will use the same silicon on which the GTX 570, GTX 580, and dual-GPU GTX 590 are based: GF110. The chip will carry the marking "GF110-270-A1". Apart from the 448 CUDA cores, the new SKU will have a memory bus width of 320-bit, and standard memory amount of 1280 MB, just like the GTX 570. The GTX 560 Ti Core 448 has clock speeds of 732 MHz core, 1464 MHz CUDA cores or shaders, and 950 MHz actual (1900 MHz DDR, or 3.80 GHz GDDR5 effective) memory clock speed. So the only thing that sets the new GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores from GTX 570 is the CUDA core count (448 vs. 480 on the GTX 570).
I'll take that gtx 570 for $250 all day everyday
togan said:If you read my post you would see that the UPCOMING REVISED GTX560Ti 448 Core GPU is "basically" a GTX570 minus 32 CUDA CORES,with a MSRP of $250 USD.
Sounds pretty darn good I hope this new 560Ti deal is rly gona happen, cus I don't want to let black friday deals pass if its not...
Thanks for the info though
Quote:If you're waiting for that "new" 560Ti " u might as well wait for 28nm GPUs
According to: semiaccurate.com its only end december early January... according to Dailytech its gona be February!
Ha, that means skipping through my entire winter vacation (I'm a student so thats my only one), but if it seems interesting enough maybe...
It seems they are just going to come up with a bunch of new Graphics cards so they're gona be rly expensive...
Idk you think the performance boost gona that important?
PS: I'm an NVIDIA guy, idk why, no AMD (=
