MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Card Spotted

By - Source: TPU | B 24 comments

On the heels of MSI's official reveal of its N500GTX Twin Frozr II series, an unannounced GTX 560 Ti version appeared on a European store.

Following MSI's recent launch of the new N500GTX Twin Frozr II series, an additional unannounced card appeared on a European store. Although the product listing has since been removed, it confirmed previous reports that Nvidia was resurrecting its "Ti" marker.

According to TechPowerUp, the new N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II OC card is (obviously) based on Nvidia's upcoming GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU. It also utilizes MSI's Twin Frozr II thermal design, and features an overclocked GPU right out of the box with a core speed of 880 MHz and 1050 MHz (4.20 GHz GDDR5 effective) memory. That's not a bad jump considering the reference speeds are a 820 MHz core and 1000 MHz (4.00 GHz) memory.

As previously reported, the new N500GTX Twin Frozr II line promises a reduced noise output by up to 8.4dB (compared to the reference design). Two temperature-controlled 8-cm PWM fans reduce the sound levels while maintaining excellent air flow across the Twin Frozr II thermal design. The cards also reportedly have cooler operating temperatures by up to 20-degrees Celsius than other GTX 570/580 cards using different cooling solutions.

For now, pricing and availability is unknown, however TechPowerUp said that MSI's GTX 560 Ti graphics card was originally listed at a hefty €280.33 ($374.83). Given that pre-release prices are usually marked higher, expect the tag to be more consumer friendly when the card finally arrives on the market.

    I believe it was during the "titanium" craze and Ti is the atomic symbol for titanium.

    I think Ti was meant to seperate two different classes of GPUs, maybe it's to seperate two different versions of the same GPU (x2 560 chips instead of 1?)

    Originally, Ti had programmable shaders, MX didn't.

    What the Ti denotes now remains to be seen.

    GEEZ! That goes back a few years. Are the marketing guru's trying for some sort of nostalgia gimmick?

    Where's the GTX 560 Ti review? I hope it's good, at least as good as a gtx 470.
