Nice card, Not any ground breaking achievements, but a good way to show cleaning up your design a bit can yield great results.

I was a long time ATI fan, but Nvidia has done right by me. I would just be happer if they would open source their coding so Linux could run it a bit smoother. Were doing alright though : )

As for gamesmachine's comment. It would be nice, but I doubt we will ever see it. Too focused on making it faster and not slimmer right now. Or even better make this gpu fully integrated into a MOBO with indepent resources dedicated to only it. Why isn't that project for someone?

I'm working on adding second gtx275, but i wont have room to work when i'm done. large bulky 2 slot cards take up soo much space makes it hard to work.

[citation][nom]James296[/nom]I waited to see what this card was going to be like but it feels more like a rebranded GTX 460/470 as far as performance so I'm just going to skip the GTX 560 "Ti" and go for the GTX 570[/citation]

actually I would consider the GTX 560 ti for a sli setup, maybe even by itself if the price drops a little bit.

Don't kid yourself. The 6950's are cheaper than the GTX 560 Ti's, but the sapphires and xfx versions are riddled with driver issues, over-heating problems, and quality control issues. Even the 6850's and 6870's got mediocre reviews on newegg. I'd wait until the 560 ti's go down in price a bit; then, buy an EVGA, gigabyte, or MSI version.

[citation][nom]gamesmachine[/nom]I totally agree, I have two 8800Gt's in SLI, on nVidia's website they say its the "new 8800gt" as that was advertised to be a great buy to allow people with normal budgets to play Crysis at a reasonable frame rate. Wish they would reduce the heat further and return to Single Slot configurations, I like space around my graphics cards, and to be able to use all my PCIe/PCI slots.The 560 Ti is quite tempting though, but the 570 with the higher number of CUDA cores also has my attention. Great article.[/citation]

If you're curious, I just sold my EVGA GTX 570 and bought the Gigabyte GTX 560 TI overclock series from newegg for 269.99. It gets just about the same performance as the GTX 570 does with a bundle of advantages. It runs cooler, it's much quieter (believe me, the 570 was loud under full loud), and uses less wattage. I'd go for the Gigabyte 560 TI in a heartbeat. Just be sure to buy it before it goes up in price.

Is this card worth it for a new build, or should I look elsewhere?

At current prices get the Radeon HD 5770, or the GTX 460/Radeon HD 6850 if you can afford them. The 550 ti is overpriced at the moment.

Sorry to necro an old thread.

The 3 billion transistors stuff in the article is misleading because not all 3 billion transistors are enabled in the 480, let alone the 470.

6870 is on par with 560ti and 6950 is on par with GTX570 so if the GTX 570 were to perform like a GTX 580 and the GTX 560 were to perform like a GTX 570 than that is when Nvidia would have been the only choice but instead is just makes Nvidia this time around overpriced with the only real option being the GTX 580 but then again that card is at leased $100 overpriced so AMD FTW for now.Further more the old then ATi Radeon HD 5870 is on par with the GTX 570 so what is Nvidia trying to prove that they are on par with Radeons 58XX series over a year and 1 hald later LOL pathetic.

What are you basing your information on? The GTX 560Ti is just a hair below the 6950 and the GTX 570 is on par with the 6970 (maybe a hair ahead). I could list a ton of benchmarks to back up what I'm saying, but you clearly have no interest in benchmarks.
