Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti review

The next generation of mid-range Fermi graphics

Our Verdict

At £200 the GTX 560 Ti is an impressive beast, unfortunately for Nvidia thanks to recent price cuts the HD 6950 just gets the nod

For

  • Decent performance
  • Decent price
  • Impressive OC prowess

Against

  • Radeon HD 6950 is faster


The performance boost over the GTX 460 is an impressive 30% almost across the board. Sometimes it's slightly higher and sometimes it's a little under, but for the most part it's pretty consistent with Nvidia's marketing spiel.

The overclocking performance is mighty good too, delivering in excess of a 10% increase especially in the DirectX 11 games.

The trouble is the Radeon HD 6950 has become the card of the moment. A combination of price drop and BIOS flashing has created an AMD card that is more desirable than anything we've seen out of the red team in a long while.
