NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 SE: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 SE

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 560 SE sales 20 February 2012 at a recommended price of $89.99 . This is Fermi 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 40 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 1 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 3.83 GHz are supplied, and together with 192 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 91.87 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 210 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 14.01 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
