ASUS’s video card runs at a mind-boggling 900MHz for the core and 1050MHz for the memory clocks, which is much higher than the NVIDIA reference clock speeds at 822/1002MHz. With these clock speeds, ASUS’s card comes close to the GeForce GTX 470 in most cases and outperforms the overclocked HD 6870s in every case except one. This card is available today for $269.99, making it a $20 premium over the reference clocked cards. NVIDIA’s GTX 560 Ti is the new iteration of the GTX 460 from last year with all SPs enabled and performance is excellent. This card also overclocks very well with over 1GHz attained using ASUS’s SmartDoctor software. This card compared to the more expensive HD 6950 2GB card is roughly equivalent with lower performance ib a couple of cases where the 2GB of memory comes into play. How the 1GB version of the 6950 performs should be interesting as the clocks are the same but with less memory near the same price as the GTX 560 Ti from ASUS. ASUS has done their homework on the new GTX560 Titanium DirectCU II Top Edition video card, its fast, overclocked and runs cooler than the standard referance cards from most manufactures with its unique design. For those who love the NVIDIA name and their chipsets, today is a great day, rejoice with the ASUS GTX560!
