Nvidia's Geforce GTX 560 shows up early

Newegg.com jumps the gun
Newegg.com hasn't apparently been notified that the launch date for upcoming Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 non-Ti card is May 17th, or simply tomorrow, and has jumped the gun listing two of these card for US $200 and US $225.

The listed cards come from Palit and MSI and both are paried with custom coolers. The Palit card ticks at what have been rumoured to be reference clocks of 810MHz for the GPU, 1620MHz for those 336 CUDA cores and 4008MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface.

The MSI card features the well known Twin Frozr II cooler and has a factory overclock, so it works at 870MHz for the GPU and 1740 for shaders. The 1GB of memory on the MSI card is set at the same reference 4008MHz.

We are quite sure that both listings will be pulled down sooner or later but the Palit card is listed at US $200 while the MSI one is listed at US $225. In any case, more of these cards should be available as of tomorrow when Nvidia officially launches its new card.

version from Palit should have been single slot card, MSI seems to provide much better cooling though, I'm not sure that there's need for these, everybody wants 28nm GPUs, not these 'grannies'

This one is exactly like a 460 only with higher clocks isn't it?

What's so new about listing early?

This happened so many times even on flagship cards. Again and again fudzilla is getting cheap on news specially on Nvidia just to be talked about.

Seems a bit pricey don't you think? Especially for a GTX 460 with higher reference clocks.

Quoting SlickR:

im sure more than one person will wind up getting dooped into a 560 non ti, due to the similar pricing and naming scheme.

Who is going to purchase one of these with many 384 core Ti's costing about the same after rebate?

The after market cooler is the point. If you buy a GTX 560 Ti reference even with rebate and then buy and install a Thermalright Spitfire let's say, that card will end up costing as much as a GTX 570/ HD 6970.

On the other hand a GTX 560 Twin Frozr will solve the noise/thermal problems while leaving you just a few frames behind the reference 560 Ti. I believe it's a good choice.

The Palit design looks awefull and it won't be as good in terms of cooling or noise as the Twin Frozr, that's an understatement.
