Next we will take a look at the GTX 560 Ti’s hardware specs. The GTX 560 Ti sports 384 CUDA cores and 64 texture units. It features 1GB of GDDR5 connected using a 256-bit interface (4x64-bit controllers), offering over 128 GB/s of bandwidth. The processor uses a 40nm process and is based on NVIDIA’s Fermi design. The table below shows a comparison of the Fermi cards.
The changes don’t stop at the GPU. The reference board features improved design as well, featuring more robust 4-phase power circuitry, 5Gbps memory modules and improved cooling, including a new cooler which features a copper heatpipe and a larger heatsink and cooling fan. This all sits on a baseplate which keeps the power circuitry and memory cooler. Let’s take a look at the GPU-Z report.
The outputs on the card include two dual-link DVI HDCP capable connectors and one mini-HDMI 1.4a connector. The card requires a 500W power supply with a minimum of 30A on the +12V rail and takes two 6-pin PCIe power connectors. The card reviewed in this article is an eVGA GTX 560 Ti Superclocked video card. Next, we will take a look at the card and packaging and its features.
