Nvidia GTX 560 to be known as the GTX 560 Ti

Written by Slobodan Simic

Titanium is back
We heard about this already from some sources but while we couldn't confirm it earlier, we sure can now - Nvidia is bringing back the Ti suffix with the upcoming GTX 560 Ti card. The confirmation came from the leaked 266.44 Geforce driver.

Those that were following the graphics card market for a while should remember the year 2002 and the introduction of a revision of the Geforce 3 NV20 chip, the NV25 chip, that was the one behind the Geforce 4600 and 4400 Ti, and later the Geforce 4200 Ti card.

Some of our sources suggested that the upcoming card should be called the GTX 560 Ti but we couldn't confirm it. According to what we hear so far, the new GTX 560 Ti will have a great performance per watt ratio. We also heard that it should be a great overclocker and thus we might see some impressive factory overclocked cards.

Of course, bear in mind that the name isn't carved in stone, at least not until the boxes are printed and that these informations are still to be confirmed, but at least the Ti is back. The card should be officially launched on 25th of January.

Then what you heard was wrong. It's impossible for it to have a 'great' performance per watt ration, 'great' would imply that it beats ATi but it certainly will not.

I saw a funny photoshoped?! picture of Dear Leader holding a card with the number of the TDP of the card and it said 180W....that's not bad at all for the performance it's supposed to bring.
Here is the link to the article on kitguru.net

@AndromedaB
Ti from the article means Titanium, an old nvidia suffix that might be used again.

As a past owner of one, the Ti is before the number as in Ti 4400.

Research it at http://www.nvidia.com/page/geforce4ti.html

My personally-calculated math:

Tests between the 460 models show the optimal amount of shaders is ~13-13.6 per ROP. GTX570/560 both have 12:1, pretty much as optimal as you're going to see out of nVIDIA's arch being the way it is. The fact the design is native, as 2Gb (4x256MB=1GB) chips appear to be, helps efficiency on 560.

With AMD's arch appearing to be slightly more efficient (avg ~3-4%) and the slight boost from ~25% more BW (~4%) you have an estimate of where this should land...and why nVIDIA keeps delaying it...and why it's price tag could potentially screw AMD's stack...and possibly why 6950s are unlockable...and...

Bring on the 1x6-pin GTX550(/460v2) to no one's surprise and amazement...

It's amazing what working chips can do!

A new card and yet a flash back of the Geforce3 and Geforce4 era. I also got a 4400 Ti even though its long dead.

I still like my trusty gtx 460 :)

So the movie "the great escape" was better than ATI's escape, and the great wall of China is better than ATI's wall, etc?

The 4400 Ti was better than the 440 MX and cost about twice as much. That's all I remember. The post says it means Titanium though.

They are returning Titanium LOOOOOOOOOL

What was good about that name???

They where dx.8 in the time when Ati had brillant 9000 series.
