Nvidia Preps GF110-based GeForce GTX 560 Ti‎ Upgrade

This new Ti will, if VR-Zone is right, be based on the GF110 chip, which makes it a close relative to the 570 and 580 models. It will also mean a drop of the current GF114.

The publication reports that the new 560 Ti will essentially be a 570 with 14 (and one disabled) streaming multiprocessor with a total of 448 cores, up from the current 384. It is more than likely that the clock speed will be below that of the 570. Expect to see the 320-bit memory interface with 56 TMUs and 40 ROPs.

The likely performance gain is pure speculation at this time, but I will make an educated guess that the card will be consuming more power than the 170 W of the current 560 Ti and move closer to the 219 W of the 570.

Current 560 Ti graphics cards sell for street prices in the $220 to $270 range. An upgrade could breath more life into the card, which should help Nvidia move more chips during the upcoming Christmas season.

    So they're going to call it what? A GTX 560 GTi? A GTX 565? Surely they won't leave the name the same (like the GTX 260's upgrade).

    Interesting.
    It was between the 560ti and the HD6950 for me.
    Now I may have to wait.
    Although unlocking the 6950 into a 6970 is still oh so appealing!

    Wikipedia already has something similar down as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti OEM. It has the same basic die as the 570 albeit with 11 SMs (352 shaders/44 TMUs) and 40 ROPs as well as the same clocks and memory interface as the 570, and a TDP of 210W. So, this particular product has less texturing power than the 560 Ti (in fact, so does the 570 and 580) but a much larger memory interface.

    Upgrading a tier 2 card is not impressive. Sure I use a 560 but I bought it a year and a half ago......

  • And what happens if some poor sap who got a first-gen 560Ti wants to get a second for SLI purposes? Two distinct models aren't going to work together in an SLI configuration, are they?

    Why not just lower the price of the 570. The new ti will approach the price of the 570 so whould buy a 570 after the new ti comes out?

    jl0329Damn, I just bought a 560ti. T_TI have one too, and, with the release of this new 560Ti, the old one's prices might drop, which means SLI for me, finally.
