NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 560 Ti sales 25 January 2011 at a recommended price of $249. 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 4.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 128.3 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 2.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 229 mm. Two 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 170 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 18.34 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
