We've got a new factory overclocked GeForce GTX 560 Ti on the bench today, hailing from Palit. What's interesting about this offering, branded under their Sonic edition product line, is that it's actually shorter than a reference GTX 560 Ti card while packing a bit more performance. Is this one short card that's dangerous to know? Find out by hitting the review link!

hi i think its a nice review to show a Palit card as i can remember they were at the beginning of the 460 GTX release the fastest oc card for a few weeks and this looks gr8 but now there is faster oc 560 GTX Ti out there. Love to see reference 560 Ti is more efecient than 5870 from the charts and compete prety nicely with it at lower resolutions like im using 1920 x 1080 so ill get this card instead and that Asus Aries card is still very fast but 6970 or even 6950 in crossfire beats it down. Can't wait for next reviewed card

We are going to be changing our benchmarks around the time Crysis 2 comes out and I will try to add in some 3D testing for future Nvidia cards.

I am going to make a post in a few days to see what forum members want to see in future GPU reviews, so if you have anything else you want to see in our reviews when we change them up let me know.
Ah, lemme know when you make that post (insert a notification if can be bothered). I'm all over the place on this site, so I tend to forget to do some stuff >_>

Course, I'm not really a Hardware enthusiast (in the sense I don't keep up on "what's what" and what all the numbers and terms mean), but I'll give input where I can ^_^

Hah, no I don't, sorry. They'll probably start popping up slowly as time goes on though. I mean, ATI isn't supporting 3D very strongly, so I'm guessing unless it takes advantage of existing optimization (NvIDIA 3D vision games), which NvIDIA won't like, it'll be hard pressed to compete.

The performance seems alright, but it's the other stuff (the fact that its smaller and has two fans plus some OC) that's included and the MRSP doesn't actually reflect the bonus features?

The lack of being able to tri-SLI it isn't that big of a loss, I think. It's a good card, but I'd think the sort of people that would go beyond dual SLI are the sort that would be willing to pump a lot of extra money into their rig (so getting higher end cards).

Also leochan, will you or any other members of the team start adding 3D-Vision (if not ATI-3D as well) to performance tests? 3D gaming is niche, sure, but it'd be nice to see how certain cards cope with 3D rendering.
The MSRP is 249.99, which is the same as the reference models so there is not additional cost added for this card even though it has better stock performance.

As for the 3D testing we could do that in future reviews as we are in the processes of acquiring new games for our benchmarks. We are adding more DX11 titles. The issue I have with the 3D testing though is that we are only setup to test NVIDIA 3D and not AMD. That would make for sort of looped sided testing. Unless you know someone with a very cheap 120Hz DisplayPort monitor. LOL
