[citation][nom]jprahman[/nom]Wow this kinda sucks, I built my LGA1156 i5-760, 2xGTX 460 rig three months ago. So now because of the Sandy Bridge launch and now this it's already obsolete.[/citation]
So what games can't your rig play?

Good riddance to GF100. What a waste...

Great review as always Chris. Excellent assessment of the competitive landscape, especiall with the dual-card configs.

What are you talking about in the conclusion(Poor availability of 1 gb 6950!?!), I just checked newegg and they have 3 different 1gb 6950 cards in stock(SAPPHIRE 100312-1GSR, XFX HD-695X-ZNFC, and the XFX HD-695X-ZNDC). AMD got their Shiz together and got this launched quicked. Just like Nvidia did with the 460 OC when the 68xx series came out. This was some dang good marketing by AMD and I would predict the 560 won't be anywhere as successful as the 460 was.

The 560 will have to come down in price to compete at this heated mid range level, so many nice cards with great performance are really making all of it quite a bargain

Looks like the 560 Ti is going to replace the GTX 470 performance wise. It's a less power hungry, more efficient option by comparison. Though it's priced higher than the 470 is right now.

Hmm, it appears as if we have an AMD fan boy here. I think the Ti will be my choice.

Thanks Rob! Always a pleasure to hear from you! =)

cyrus, try adding 50 of each card to your cart. There are 56 cards TOTAL. That is not a launch any more than 20 cards were when I wrote that line last night :)

Granted, 56 cards isn't much of a launch, but if XFX got them in that quickly, its not too far-fetched to think that other board makers could be supplying very soon(Powercooler, HIS, MSI, etc...). As it stands, 56 boards isn't a wide release, just meant to spoil the release of the 560 ti.

I do find this marketing tactic very similar to what Nvidia pulled with the 460 FTW during the 68xx launch. All reviews site took quite a bit of heat with that one.

Pretty much runs any game I want, yes that means Crysis. lol I'm happy with it, it's just that tech moves so fast that within only three months there are next gen parts superseding my CPU and video cards already.

I think I'll just wait for the 6990, CF it, which I think will just cost 400 each, because of what this card did to AMD lineup(So much "BANG for THE BUCK",sheesh). But if they enable this card for tri SLI, then I'm going 560 route.

The 5870 is such a beast! AMD really did a nice job with that card. They know what they're doing when they make their cards. I still love my 4870. Still don't need an upgrade.

Exactly; I was going to ask the same thing. A new card coming out doesn't make previous cards downclock or otherwise lose capacity. It's okay to fight the money-churn...

I'm not sure why some sites are saying the 6950 1GB will cannibalize the sales of the 6950 2GB. Yes, the 6950 1GB performs pretty much as well (or better) as the 2Gb at the most relevant resolutions, BUT the 2GB card can be unlocked to a 6970 which makes it hands-down the best value.

[citation][nom]Anik8[/nom]This is chickenshit with everybody blindly slamming the gtx 560.IMO it performed reasonably well and is at par with the 6950.Moreover the card has exceptional overclocking headroom and the OC charts are simply overwhelming.[/citation]

Agreed. It's just because the 570 and 580 had such wonderful performance the AMD fanboys are leaping on anything they can.

You two must of read a different article then we did.

Like several other people have said the price needs to come down. after that then you have a winner otherwise it's just not worth it, plus everyone had high expections for it because of how well the GTX 460 did.

sorry for the double post

as far as my expections were that it would be close behind the 570 but it was mid pack for most of the benches. anyway we will see how well it really does in the coming mouths

what about in SLI setting?
2 GTX-470 = 1280 RAM X2 = 2560(AROUND)
2 GTX-560 = 1000 RAM X2 = 2000

CAN GTX-560 STILL BEAT GTX-470 IN PERFORMANCE IN GAMING?

That 1GHz binned GTX 560 Ti actually has me considering Nvidia. The last Nvidia card I owned was a 7500LE.
Congratulations Nvidia, you've finally redeemed yourself in my eyes. I'm currently using a 5830, and it's quite loud. My CPU HSF is set at 100%, and I have 5 case fans, yet the GPU stands far above the others when I'm gaming at it starts hitting 70 degrees.

The GTX 560 looks pretty good, but I think a lot of us are disappointed just because of how amazing the GTX 460 1GB was for its price point at launch--which isn't fair. It doesn't win anything, including price points, outright. But the overclocked Gigabyte version--that might be where the win is for the GTX 560. Perhaps NVidia should have marketed two versions like they did with the 460--only sort them by binning instead. This will need to drop to $220 though before I can see any reason to choose it over a Radeon 5870.
