Nvidia's "GTX 560" detailed

Written by Slobodan Simic

384 SPs, 256-bit, 820MHz GPU clock
The recent GPU-Z screenshot of the upcoming GTX 560 made us ask around and we can now report that the mentioned specifications are on target, i.e. those are the same that we heard from our sources. The new "GTX 560" is based on GF114 GPU that we already wrote about here, has 384 CUDA cores and should launch sometime in January.

Nvidia's new mid-range card has 384 Stream Processors and runs at 820MHz for the GPU, 1640MHz for shaders and 4000MHz for 1024MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The GTX 560 name isn't carved in stone and although partners are internaly refering to it as the GTX 560, Nvidia didn't officially announce the name and the card could easily become the GTX 570 SE for that matter.

Of course, these specs are what partners got from Nvidia. Unfortunately, the card is scheduled for January next year so we'll have to wait a while before we can talk about concrete information. You can check out the original GPU-Z screenshot here.

Should make for great competition and to help drive prices further down into the ground.

OOOOuch, this is the one that is really going to bring the hurt on for AMD......at the price point this will probably be released at I don't think there would be any point in buying any of the AMD 6000 series cards.

Techno: AMD's offerings completely wipe the floor with NV cards at the same price points. Stop trolling.

@dan...I'm not trolling....thats exactly what gtx 460 did and the 560 is set to do the same .....in fact with the performance spread of the 6000 series from the 6850 to the 6970 being so limited it would be quite possible for this 560 and it's overclocked varients to completely dominate that section of the market occupied by the 6000 series.

@techno... GTX460 did well until the 6800 series came out, then there was competition in terms of power consumption for the same performance, at the same price...
@dan AND techno: Please don't extrapolate for upcoming cards...

I'm hoping that there will still be lots of overclocking room with the relatively high stock clocks on this thing. Since it's called the GF114, I'll assume that some of the improvements they made from GF100 to GF110 also apply to this chip too.

[quote name="Hiro"].. GTX460 did well until the 6800 series came out, then there was competition in terms of power consumption for the same performance, at the same price...

So when the 560 comes out at probably similarly priced to the 460 and completely dominates the 6850 and 6870 in terms of performance, then we will see which the public think is the most important performance/watt or performance/$.....my guess is that provided power consuptions are reasonable the public don't give a damn within certain limits.

Also with 560 and it's oced varients challenging if not exceeding the Cayman offerings at a much lower price then AMD is going to be shuffling its prices faster than a casino croupier.

Ouch, the stock frequency is rather high for a nvidia chip, but stock cards should perform well.

The question is how well will GTX560 perform and for what price? I'm all about cheaper and faster cards and i can only hope they will price this card simillar to 6870 and not 6950, though performance remains to be seen.

I don't see the point , how can you compare a rebrand to a newly developed chip ?
AMD will always win , for real .
+25 #9 Dom99 2010-12-21 20:35
doesnt matter if it is a rebrand or not, 500 series cards perform better than 6000 series, thats true!

I think it will come in at £200, where the 570 is £300 and the 580 is £400.

That puts it inbetween 6870-6950 pricing, and I think it will perform on par with the 5870/6950.

P.S just got my 6950 and it is HUGE! hope it fits my case

For my 6970 I had to "tune" my casing with pliers :sigh:

It's huge and heavy.
