Different Models of GTX 560 Ti

Hey guys im looking to purchase a GTX 560 Ti but there are two different models.

There is an ASUS ENGTX560 TI

Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core Clock: 900MHz
Shader Clock: 1800MHz
CUDA Cores: 384
Effective Memory Clock: 4200MHz


and

There is an GIGABYTE GV-N560UD-1G

Chipset Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Core Clock: 822MHz
Shader Clock: 1644MHz
CUDA Cores: 384
Effective Memory Clock: 4000MHz


Do I go with the ASUS? Is there a huge performance difference?

  1. What's the price difference?
  2. get the GIGABYTE GV-N560UD-1G which i bet is cheaper then use after burner to oc to the asus settings.
  3. You can not OC an 820 Mhz reference card to the same settings as the Asus card.

    The Asus card has a 7 phase VRM, modified PCB and immensely improved cooler and it will hit as high as 1070 Mhz (30+% over reference speed) ....a reference 560 ti liek the Gigabyte model you listed has no shot at even approaching those settings.....even if added extra cooling , VRM wcouldn't handle it

    The 900Mhz versions run about $10 more than the reference cards.....but not all 900Mhz cards are created equal.....many (i.e. EVGA) use the standard reference board and 4 phase VRM

    $210 Asus 560 Ti TOP ....900 Mhz outta the box, 7 phase VRM, modified PCB, non reference board1070 max stable OC

    $210 Gigabyte GV-N560OC-1GI ....similar construction, same factory OC as above, not seen it get as high on the OC tho.

  4. TechPowerUp was able to stably overclock their NVIDIA reference design GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1 GB from the reference GPU default of 823 MHz to 943 MHz and from the reference memory default of 1002 MHz to 1240 MHz.

    HardTecs4U (ht4u.net) was able to overclock their NVIDIA reference design GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1 GB from the reference GPU default of 823 MHz to 940 MHz and from the reference memory default of 1002 MHz to 1050 MHz.

    The reference cards only have a 4-phase VRM for the GPU and a single phase VRM for the memory.
