So they're going to call it what? A GTX 560 GTi? A GTX 565? Surely they won't leave the name the same (like the GTX 260's upgrade).

Interesting.
It was between the 560ti and the HD6950 for me.
Now I may have to wait.
Although unlocking the 6950 into a 6970 is still oh so appealing!

Wikipedia already has something similar down as the GeForce GTX 560 Ti OEM. It has the same basic die as the 570 albeit with 11 SMs (352 shaders/44 TMUs) and 40 ROPs as well as the same clocks and memory interface as the 570, and a TDP of 210W. So, this particular product has less texturing power than the 560 Ti (in fact, so does the 570 and 580) but a much larger memory interface.

And what happens if some poor sap who got a first-gen 560Ti wants to get a second for SLI purposes? Two distinct models aren't going to work together in an SLI configuration, are they?

Why not just lower the price of the 570. The new ti will approach the price of the 570 so whould buy a 570 after the new ti comes out?

[citation][nom]jl0329[/nom]Damn, I just bought a 560ti. T_T[/citation]
I have one too, and, with the release of this new 560Ti, the old one's prices might drop, which means SLI for me, finally.

I think the question will be.. who will buy a 560ti OEM since its so damn close in price to the more powerful (if only by a small amount) gtx 570?

So they can completely stop the G114 fab process and build only GF 110 and more products on one fabrication process. Which makes it cheaper to produce.

I think that this could be a move to counter the upcoming Radeon 7xxx series (at least the mainstream ones), since it is being rumored that nVidia's own 28nm GPUs will be delayed.

[citation][nom]southernshark[/nom]Upgrading a tier 2 card is not impressive. Sure I use a 560 but I bought it a year and a half ago......[/citation]

Yeah... no you didn't.
 
rumor has it tsmc(amd and nvidia's gpu manufacturer) is having trouble with nvidia's 28 nm 6xx series gpu's production. meanwhile tsmc reported that radeon hd 7xxx cards have gone into volume production.
nvidia's declaration of a new gtx 560 might be to compete with the new radeon cards. a new card is good news....still, price reductions across the lineup would have been much better imo.

That was possible several months ago. Not so much anymore. Depends on which one you buy.
