Tuesday ZOTAC revealed a new GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card sporting a meaty core clock speed of 950 MHz and a memory clock speed of 4400 MHz, a nice boost considering the stock GTX 560 Ti offers a core clock speed of 822 MHz and a memory clock speed of 4008 MHz.
Called the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 Ti AMP! Edition, the card sports 384 unified shaders, a 1900 MHz shader clock, 1 GB of DDR5 memory using a 256-bit interface, and a custom single-fan cooler sporting a nice black/yellow design. The only drawback here is that it physically requires a two-slot clearance while connected to only one PCI Express slot (2.0 or 1.1).
"ZOTAC strives to deliver a quality gaming experience with all of our products. With the GeForce GTX 560 Ti AMP! Edition we wanted to maximize performance without sacrificing visual quality or stability for our end users," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International. "After carefully tuning the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 580 AMP! Edition, we are able to deliver the highest clock speeds capable of passing our rigorous DirectX 11 testing procedure without a single graphical artifact."
In addition to ZOTAC's Boost Premium software bundle, the AMP! Edition card will come packed with a voucher for Ubisoft's 3rd-person action-adventure game Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood for the PC. Using the voucher, gamers will be able to download the upcoming title for free when it launches sometime in Q1 2011 (the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version hit the market last November).
Currently pricing and availability of the new ZOTAC card is unknown, so stay tuned.
Also, the quote from Zotac mentions tuning a GTX 580, I believe that should have been the GTX 560 that the article is about?
As to the card itself, it looks nice with a good OC, so pricing is going to be interesting.
and are hardly ever stable. even if they are the better binned ones, you see a LOT of complaints about instability...
the x60 cards are always so solid, and don't cost an arm and a leg.
