Early GTX 560 Ti benches tip up in China

Written by


Looks quite promising
Several early benchmarks of Nvidia’s upcoming GTX 560 Ti board were posted at the chiphell.com discussion board and the results look quite promising.

According to the figures, the 560 managed to outperform the old 460 by about 25 percent and the same goes for AMD’s HD 6870. Surprisingly, the 560 is very close to the Cayman based HD 6950, at least in 3Dmark.

The card scores P4118 in 3Dmark 11, while the Vantage score stands at P20644. As expected, the GTX 560 Ti ended up with 384 shaders, 32 ROPs, 1024MB of GDDR5 memory and a 256-bit bus with a total memory bandwidth of 128.3GB/s. The default GPU clock appears to be 823MHz, while the shaders and memory ended up at 1645MHz and 1002MHz respectively. This is quite a bit faster than the GTX 460, although some factory overclocked GTX 460 boards ended up at 850MHz.

Mind you, the results should be taken with a grain of salt, but nonetheless the GTX 560 appears to deliver impressive performance. It should be able to match AMD’s HD 6950, so at this point it all comes down to the price. The GTX 560 should launch later this month and January 25 is being tossed around as the launch date.

If you're looking to get the most longevity out of what you invest your money in to I'd personally recommend waiting it out for the 28nm shrink that's coming out later this year from both AMD and Nvidia.

Oh man but i want a new rig now, i've been waitng since last year for an upgrade.

@on topic, the GTX 560 Ti looks promissing, can't wait for the reviews later this month.....hopefully i won't have to stop my itchy trigger finger after this launch.....it's been a long run for me.

A price war might be in the pipes, kitguru investigates, or rather guess estimates:

Thanks for the news Peter, but I believe what you say regarding that the 560 is 25% faster than the 460 is not entirely correct.

Quote:
the 560 managed to outperform the old 460 by about 25 percent



According to the graphs, the 560 is 100% and the 460 ~75%.

That means that the 460 is 25% slower than the 560 but if you say it the other way around, the 560 is 33% faster. If you come to think of it, that was to be expected with 14% more shaders and 23% more clock.

Also, I believe that this 2.1 that appears on the graph, is heaven 2.1.

The 560 will be a good card no doubt.

:D
Are you sure? :-* 560 to be as fast as 6950? We will see when it is launched.

@Nerdmaster but 6950 is 6970 in few seconds of work...

I usually prefer AMD but i must say that Gtx 460 was in many PCs i build for friends and customers.
Usually people try to save asa much as they can with new PC and 460 768 is priced nice, HD 5750 and 5770 costs WAY too much today, and most people wont go over the price of 460 768, i wish 6850 is just a lil more cheaper...

Quoting leftiszi:

Not entirely correct, an increase from 75% to 100% is just that, 25%. The only way it would be a 33% increase is if you're trying to gauge the percentage increase from 75 to a 100, which is a quantity. Divide 25 by 75 and you get a 33% percent increase. However, the chart is based on percentages. By dividing 25% by 75% to get 33%, you'd accomplish little; since the accepted difference is still 25%. The chart will always focus on something at 100%. In the case of two percentages, you generally focus on the difference from the higher percentage. This is termed "percentage points" It creates no confusion.

Discuss my "claim". LOL!

Those percentages (not quantity) correlate to a 25% increase; which is what is what is represented on the chart.

Look up the concept of "Percentage Points" (the differences between percentages), it will be explained.

How about refuting my claim, instead of giving a thumbs down; which proves nothing?



so by claiming that your claim is a claim, you have thus proven it to be false even in thine own eyes, so no need in refuting...jk

LOL! Also, I didn't give you a thumbs down. Just a heads up. You're cool in my book.

Actually, no... leftiszi is right. 25% slower from a 100% doesn't equal 25% faster from a 75% quantity. Reverse it! Make 460 100% and 560 will be... ?

NOT 125%! more like 130%.

Anyway, the 6950 flashed is still the better bet!
