Can someone please give me the real deal 448cores?

what is the real deal on this card? gtx 560ti 448? some guy was trying to say these are just 570's that weren't making the grade....? if that is true, how can these have such overclock potential ? the 570's have problems overclocking because of their power phase structure don't they? i haven't had time to read all of the info, but i want to buy something decent, and this is what i was leaning towards buying...i'm not paying $560 for a 7970 with a limited warranty, and probably have to wait months for decent drivers...

  1. I have been told the the 448 core for that 560 ti makes it half way to the 570. Here some bench marks testing. with this you can see that it is in the middle of the 570 and 560 ti. I hope this helps.

  2. wonder how it does with AA...i really wanted to buy a card with larger than 256bit pipe...sick of looking at that same #
  3. Myself I am going to buy these cards after the Kepler come's out and hopefully the price will drop. I want two of these cards they will be perfect for the type of gaming I like to do.
  4. they are crippled 570s. Nvidia stockpiled them for months for the special holiday released. are they bad cards? No. But once they run out there is no guarantee you'll ever be able to get another, so if you are thinking about SLI a year down the road you should avoid them.
  5. my only question is, if they are in fact crippled 570's, how is it that they have no issues with overclocking? the power phase setup on the 570's caused issues for overclockers..how is that not affecting the 560 448's then?
  6. Because they use the PCB of the GTX580. Same as the 5830 used the 5870 PCB and not the 5850.
  7. ah ha! so it uses the 580's pcb...sooooo yea that's uh..good. the gpu itself has some lesser capacity then i take it..what exactly?
  8. ??? Are you serious? How about 448 shaders instead of 512?
  9. If it's causing you some distress, just pay the extra $40 for the 570!
  10. i dont want the 570 because of the pcb

    The standard 560 and 560 Ti's use the nVidia GF114 core with the full 384 shaders.

    The Ti-448 is based on the 512 shader GF110 core that the 570 uses. I suspect that is a better overclocker because of a newer design.
